Foreigner worked as volunteer teacher
“All you guys, follow me. Fragrant Rice, meaning ‘Daoxiang’ in Chinese. Have you seen the paddy field near our community?” On Oct 19, Turkoglu from Ethiopia gave his first English lesson as volunteer teacher of “Warm Nest”in Dongsha Community, Donghu Road, Furong District. How happy these children were when playing games and learning English with a foreign teacher.
In Dongsha Community, many of the residents are migrant workers, for whose children getting extra-class English lessons has always been their dream. “We want to build a ‘warm nest’ for the children especially for those of migrant workers by inviting a foreign volunteer teacher.” Huang Xifei, head of Dongsha Neighborhood Committee contacted Hunan University and Hunan Agricultural University and the initiative won support from overseas students from various countries including Britain and Poland.
