HARBIN, Heilongjiang Province:
Today was supposed to be the first of two Public Welfare Days, but it was cancelled!
Because this TEFL training part of the TTC programme is normally done in Beijing, (and it wasn't this year because of the Olympics), people in Harbin have been extra-helpful in working with TTC to organise our training and our trips, our accommodation and so on. So TTC set up these days to give us a chance to say thank you to the people of Harbin.
Was a little disappointed it was cancelled, hopefully the other won't be. From the sounds of it, we'll be sitting in a park with some of the locals, playing English language games! Think it'll be nice!
Had the day free again, so prepared more for TP week, and hung out with a few different people.
