In February 2014,the True China program was honored to welcome four new teachers.We held a welcome dinner at Jinlu Sichuan restaurant,which is famous for their Sichuan food.
The welcome dinner invited our new teachers to Chengdu,Jessica from the USA,Paul from Scotland,and Joe and Rhys from Austrialia.The even was also attended by our experienced staff members,as well as current teachers,Robert and Rochelle.
All the teachers ordered their favorite dishes.Paul ordered fried rice with eggs(dan chao fan)in Chinese,which surprised us.
The wonderful dinner was opened by a toast by the director of True China,Flora.She welcomed the new teachers who have traveled across a great distance to participate in the True China program,and expressed our best wishes to them.
It surprised the True China staff members that Paul and Rhys were able to stand the spicy food that even Chinese locals find hard to tolerate!
We hope their lives in China will be smooth and as wonderful as they have imaged.We are ready to assist them with any challenges they may come across in their future in Chengdu.
