Welcome to TAIZHOU TEACHERS COLLLEGE IN JIANGSU, PRCWelcome to TAIZHOU TEACHERS COLLLEGE IN JIANGSU, PRCWelcome to TAIZHOU TEACHERS COLLLEGE IN JIANGSU, PRC

The Staff and Students of Taizhou Teachers College offer their talents to an appreciative audience.
***Dear Friends: PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF MY "NEW" E-MAIL: HSchneider101@gmail.com (The reasons are noted below)

The Financial Crisis and the difficult and tense economic conditions in Western Countries, especially in America, seems to be putting the jobs of many teachers in jeopardy. Educated and experienced and reluctantly, some instructors will retire early, recent graduates will look for positions in vain, others may feel personal frustration with their insecure employment conditions, while many more may have already been layed off.

If you find yourself among these groups of anxious individuals, may I suggest the opportunities available as a teacher at my college in China, "TAIZHOU TEACHERS COLLEGE", in the East-coast Province of Jiangsu. TAIZHOU TEACHERS COLLEGE invites qualified college graduates to apply for the positions available as English teachers or German teachers in our small college, where many of the students are training to become the future educators for the children of China.

As it has been for me, grasping the opportunity to teach in China, specifically in my city of Taizhou, Jiangsu, may well become the adventure of a life-time. The experience may fill your early life with great and desirable experience, so much appreciated by future

Taizhou Teachers College is located on three campusses. The main campus of TTC is not so large and houses about 4,000 students. The campus-grounds are lovely, especially during the spring time, when hundreds of trees display their colors.
I NEED TO INFORM YOU OF A CHANGE IN MY E-MAIL. MY "NEW" E-MAIL:

hschneider101@gmail.com

Please make a note of my new E-mail. I am sorry for the trouble. A "worm" has entered my computer, stole all of my contact addresses of family, friends, students, teachers and contacts from my TravelBlog. Spam mail from an online pharmacy was then sent to all of these contacts, and probably to you. I am so sorry. In turn, MSN has deleted my account, though they have made no attempt to discover the worm, which has recently infected millions of computers around the world.
I have contacted MSN at least 9 times to discuss the problems of this worm, and as of this date, not one person in Microsoft customer service has contacted me on how to resolve this problem. I guess "Microsoft" just doesn't care so much for the "little" people. Shame on you, "Microsoft"!!! In turn I have lost all of my unanswered emails. If your e-mail is one of them, please resend it to my new address: hschneider101@gmail.com
Again I am very sorry for this problem. But it is not of my doing. Thank you for your understanding.

Magnificent again
Hello Hans, OH, IF I was just 20 years younger how I would love just a month or two of your experience at Taizhou. The photos capture the moments... the blazen colours of costume, performance and 5000 year Culture, but best of all, the faces of all those wonderful people. About now you will see the ink turn a brighter shade of green. Visited Expo in May, there is a possibility I may be going back with our delegation for a few days in August to assist at the NZ Pavilion. Make sure you get to visit this vast site... you need a week to see it all. OK, take care...kevin

some advice
Hello,Hans!I am one of your students majoring in English Teaching of TTC.Just now I read your Chapter125.Your article is easy to understand and our school is alive in your writing.I think it would be better if you give us an account of some stories happened between you and your students.In my eyes,that could be more active and alive.Besides,I'd like to point out a small mistake In the 7th paragraph of Chapter 125.In fact, there are seven departments and two pre-college departments in our school." English, Korean, German and Japanese, Experimental Primary-teacher Education" you have mentioned in your writings are just some majors in Foreign Language Department.I think you must be mistake these majors for departments.If I made any mistakes in my comments,just forget it.
