Mark is teaching at Jiang Han University in the English department. His students are all English majors. His weekly schedule is pretty spread out but he gets Thursdays off and every weekend. Every teacher is expected to be at the English Corner on Tuesday evenings for 2 hours of conversation and laughter. Last week we were surrounded by many new students who had never come to English corner. I had 25 all around me and Mark was separated out with a group of men asking manly questions, etc. We barely saw each other until he reached his hand into my group and “rescued ” me after 2 hours. All of the students roared when they heard he was my husband. These students are such romantics!
His classes vary in size. Because he has the English majors, his classes are more manageable rather than the hundreds of oral English students in the other classes (at least 50 to a room). His students are serious about learning English.
That’s it for today! You can watch a video we made here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooCMTWzDipw
