Mike Shecket Goes To China!

Ni hao and welcome

July 13th, 2007

My name is Mike Shecket, and in a few weeks I’m going to arrive in Guiyang, China where, for ten and a half months, I will be teaching English to students at Guiyang No. 1 High School. I’m going to make a record of my experience on this blog, including lots of pictures and videos.

The Chinese characters in the title of this blog essentially form the words found below in English. 谢迈克 is the Chinese name I’ve chosen for myself (more on that later), 在 means “in” or “located at”, and 中国 is the name of China in Chinese (literally “Middle Country”).

Before I leave, I’m going to talk about why I decided to do this, what preparations I’ve undertaken, and my hopes and fears for the adventure.

    How exciting! keep us posted! Do you have an RSS Feed on this Blog? If not please get one and let me know:) (I will try to add you to my “Bloglines” now)

  7. Katy

    Wow! You’ll have so much fun!
    …but will you be able to access your blog in China? I’ve had friends go over there who have to e-mail me and ask me to send them the contents of blogs sometimes because China blocks the sites. Although they could still IM, which didn’t make much sense to me.
