HUAIROU, Beijing Province:
Had to be in school for half 8 this morning for a meeting with the Korean Department. We've been asked to teach on Saturday mornings - two classes each, which I think will be quite fun.
Basically, it's a Korean school in Korea, but there's an exchange programme or something, so some of the teachers and the students are living at the Chinese School. I think it's to help the Korean students to learn Chinese to get into a Chinese University.
I've got the highest class - the intermediate class, who I'm told are really good at English, so that should be interesting. I'm sharing the class with a Phillipino English teacher called Efren, who seems a really nice guy, so it should be good!
