HUAIROU, Beijing Province:
Been handing out posters this week for English Corner - fortunately this week Bao Gao Ting was free, and I reckon about 50 students turned up!
Took my photo album along to generate some conversation, and it worked pretty well. They still want to just talk to us rather than talk English between themselves, but I guess it's voluntary and if they're happy and practising some English we're achieving something!
To celebrate Thanksgiving we tried out another new restaurant - it had a really nice atmosphere - think it'll be a good place for Christmas dinner!
