In this episode, we chat with Angela, a Canadian who went to China for the first time in 2006, which is where she met her husband. She left China and returned, as so many expats do. Lucky for me, she came back to China in 2010 and worked at the same school teaching Academic English to students who were about to study abroad. Angela’s relationship to languages and language learning is the complete opposite to mine: before learning Mandarin Chinese she fluently learned French, Spanish and Finnish, with a strong emphasis on speaking the language. She is now a teacher in Canada and is able to help International students from China and other countries, adapt to their new learning and academic life in a small study group environment as well.
A sound note: Angela’s adorable baby boy joined us for some of this conversation. I have edited out the vast majority of the sounds that overpowered our voices but there are a few soft baby noises left. If you are someone who will be annoyed by such sounds, please feel free to listen to the first 30 minutes of the podcast (before Morgan joined us) and then return next month for another episode of Changing Scripts. Thank you.
