2 of our cousins are in China. 1 is teaching, the other one is fluent in Chinese, not sure what she does though. I do know she has million followers on one of her social media outlets.

I wish that I could have had this chance when I was younger, I'd have loved to have done it! Apparently, it's in very high demand, and teachers are well compensated for the gig.

About 35 years ago, my brother taught English in Japan.



Now he is a professor at Notre Dame. I guess it gave him the teaching bug.

China has never been on my bucket list, never will be. Currently, there are two former Canadian diplomats held by the Chinese government on espionage charges. They are being used as pawns in the Huawia mess. I would be very reticent to live or work in China. Japan, that would be another story.

I sort of agree with CWS - but not to the extreme.

It is too good an opportunity to pass on BUT - if told it is best not to do or go somewhere... then DON'T!

Otherwise take advantage of the chance to learn and experience!
