What do you do on a rainy Saturday in Shanghai? Go to the mall. Malls in Shanghai are generally very shiny and fancy with lots of designer shops selling things that I can't afford. We have a membership for Arthur at a play centre called Park Kids Land inside a futuristic mall called L'Avenue. See the pictures below.
I'm very excited to be at the Google office in Hong Kong. I'm attending a Google Educator Level 1 Bootcamp and I can't help feeling like I'm in the movie The Internship! I have already taken advantage of the free food. They have the unhealthy stuff hidden in the drawers!
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day in Shanghai with pollution-free skies. The school grounds were quiet and I took some photos of our lovely school campus and my classroom.
I have finally started having Chinese lessons again. Yesterday, for the first time in two years, I went back to HanYuan School on GaoLan Lu in the French Concession. I'm hoping that at some point in the not-too-distant future, I can sit the HSK level 3 exam. Check out the school and its beautiful old building in the pictures below.
I have been teaching French and Spanish for 13 years. I qualified and started teaching in the UK, and I currently work at Shanghai Community International School, China. I have experience teaching GCSEs and IB DP and MYP. Find out more about me within these blog pages or below at Linked In.
