What those who went say….

“I loved the Chinese people and they like me. The students, teachers and almost everyone else, were warm, welcoming, intrigued, especially by an older woman (a blond who wears bright red lipstick) travelling all the way on their own and one who is an avid football fan into the bargain.”
(Heather Nicolson, former London Times journalist.)

Getting to know China

‘Teaching in China gave me the opportunity to travel to many parts of the country. I have wonderful memories. I gained insights into a culture and people very different from my own. I’m still in regular contact with former students and teaching colleagues who befriended me in Nanchang and Chongqing and whom I intend to see again – as I’m still not too old.’
(John Quigley, retired civil servant from Donegal)
