La Salle Study Centre Changjiao
2012 – TEACHING ENGLISH AT LSSC CHANGJIAO
at first I went to the Big Apple, having heard so much about the many
crime incidents, I was very fearful and. apprehensive. So in order to
conquer that unknown, I made a point of visiting NY. That was the same
year DAYBREAK was shown, with the
the travelling to Changjiao was a similar experience.......but turned
out to be a very pleasant difference.........we had to recognise the
very friendly and surprisingly helpful people, students and the local
folks. So the Dabu book is realistically reflecting the situation as far
as we could know........
getting to understand a bit more of the culture, we felt very much
welcomed and could feel being able to blend in with the local folks who
staff your activities, especially the food chain. Of course we do feel
overfed sometimes with the lavish banquet........
we were amazed by the students discipline and guessed this is expected
of them to be students of this center. In fact, there were some who were
very forward and bolder to make efforts to befriend us and we do welcome
these studsnts with the leadership qualities........could be that these
students are more mature and we trust the others will grow these traits
in the course of following your good teachings......
special mention are Lucy and GenMei......these are very capable and
helpful lasses, amongst the very many young maidens........wish more
will be able to emulate them to carry on with the spirit of LaSalle.
certainly enjoyed our stay and the physical activities, climbing the
Yingya hill, and the dabbling in Chinese brush painting and visiting
some nearby places.......and would look forward to your welcoming us for
more future summer and winter study camps.....
