Life in the Middle Kingdom
I am an ESL teacher in China. Duties include nstilling my mother tongue into the impressionable minds of Chinese youth and teaching my "pennsylvania hua" to my adult classes.
I live in Tianjin, a large port city in northeast China. The city doesn't have much to offer in terms of tourism but this is my home away from home. Tianjin people are warm and friendly, the city is close to Beijing so its easy to get away if I want, and the food here is the best.
When I'm not teaching or preparing lessons (this doesnt actually consume too much of my time so I have loads of spare time) I spend all my time studying Chinese and Hindi.
