The Lattitude volunteers started today with 1½ hours of Chinese language study, ending with a visit to a local fruit shop to use what they had learned [see photo]. Then I taught them for two hours before we headed to a XinJiang restaurant for lunch. Back for a birthday cake and a video of a previous volunteer teaching a class of 60. Two more hours of training from me after that took us to 6pm. At 7pm we met in their hotel lobby for a half hour walk to Kunming's English Corner by the Green Lake, where locals gather to practice their English [see photo]. I left them immersed in conversations by 8.30pm and got home by 9.30pm for JD's "going to bed" routine. A long day for all of us.
