At last month’s meeting, we had a surprise speaker- Madeline Sautelle.  She has just returned from a years teaching in China. She began her talk by informing us on how she got to China after her A levels. On arriving in Bejing airport she was greeted by heavy pollution which greatly affected her throat.  She was taken to Jiangxi to the school where she would be living and working. She said the school looked like a jail!  There were 4000 students attending, 3000 were boarders, some not going home for years! She reported that the students were shy but they already spoke good English. She set up an English club, and to her surprise students would be ready at 5am to take part. She had made friends for life.  Now Madeline is off to Exeter University. We wish her success and will follow her journey into the world of work.
