Last night we received our TEFL final take home exam.
It took me about 2.5 hours to complete.
As a break we ventured out to the Carrefour to stock up on snacks for the train ride.
It was similar to what a Global Foods is at home but a little more China–gritty.
They had everything–just about–cheese was about 2.50 for a tiny block.
An International food aisle had all sorts of treats that us Westerners love–both very expensive.
So we found Chinese equivalent.
I found “Kewpie” blueberry jam. I only know Kewpie as the dolls back home but apparently the dollmaker makes jam as well.
Ros was looking for vodka to help her through the train ride. We didn’t find real Russian vodka but they did have enormous jugs filled with rice vodka. Did not purchase those, of course.
At any rate I am done! I was so happy when I finished my exam. It was very time consuming, a lot of information but I felt like I knew mostly everything and I think I will be able to come up with some fantastic lesson plans.
At this point I don’t care what grades I will have. I am taking each day as it comes.
Today the sky is beautiful and it’s our last day in Beijing, I am going to enjoy today so much.
I have to turn in my TEFL exam, teach my last class [which will be going over a skit] then take my Mandarin final. My quizzes have gotten progressively better in those classes. I am not too worried about the exam.
Finally we will have our long awaited talent show and banquet dinner.
These weeks have been a whirlwind and now we will be uprooted again to to Shenzhen!
