On Friday, June 28, 2013 GreatChina hosted a farewell event at the Rhombus Hotel in Chengdu to honor the foreign teachers who participated in the True China Exchange Program during 2012-13. The event was also attended by GreatChina staff members and Chinese students who were taught by the teachers in the past year. The evening consisted of a delightful dinner and was followed by memorable toasts, testimonials and games.
Foreign teachers in attendance included Benjamin Riegel, David Cox, Tiffany Chiang, Joel Rodriguez, Robert O’Leary, Loretta Lopez and Amanda May Mount, who taught subjects including English, Public Speaking, Academic Writing, AP Calculus and US Culture. Special thanks were given to Flora Liu and Lan Tian for their recruitment efforts and support throughout the launching of the program!
