Interview with Rachel


How long have you been in Chengdu/China and how long do you plan to stay?

I have been here since February 2015! It seems like only yesterday but over two years now. I plan to stay here until I have a day where I consider Chengdu boring!


Why did you choose to come to Chengdu/Sichuan and what do you like most about this part of China?

I saw the advert originally posted online with a massive list of benefits. Low living costs, culturally rich, TESOL, Chinese classes etc. the biggest reason that kept me here has got to be the food without a thought! The food here is second to none!


Where do you teach/have been teaching and what age groups? What are the good and bad sides of that age group?

I’ve taught all ages throughout the duration I’ve been here. I work at a kindergarten currently, the pro’s include how cute they are! Con’s because they’re so young you can’t really have any meaningful communications with them unlike older students!


What has been the most rewarding part of this experience and what will you do next?

Enfly has given me an opportunity that I wouldn’t have received anywhere else. They let me become a teacher. I never dreamed I could ever be an educator! I had no experience but enfly gave me everything I needed to do the job and do the job well.


Would you recommend coming to live and teach in Chengdu?
