I went to class - as you can see there were some difficulties trying to find software on students machines - but we got there. i got this student to show me the menu, took a photo so i could show another student.
After class Zhao and I went for lunch - in the staff canteen. Luch was very nice (well part of it) and also very cheap! I took a picture of it for you to see! Zhao gave me a zpoon as well as sticks but i didn't need it. It seems if they have soup they eat it after their main meal.
After lunch i went for a walk around campus again - it was nice in the rain - very warm and the air smelt clean. I decided to look in the library - which is absolutely massive. I needed my uni card to get in - as i approached the electronic gate with my card i thought " i hope this works"
if it hadn't I would not have been flustered or bothered in anyway - i just get on and do what i can - i have only seen 3 other foreigners like me on campus - i must stand out like a sore thumb - but i feel fine - everyone is nice and lets me get on with whatever i am doing. (As i type i hear more fireworks)
Last week i was asked if i would go to one of the student's classes "English corner" (tonight); it is at Bin Jiang's univeristy - still on this campus - it is where they get foreign teachers to speak to the students in English - so i went along it is an actual class and a register was taken - it was held in the canteen - and was very relaxed - I was the only native English speaker to turn up - so tere were lots of people asking me lots of questions - it was very funny at times. The students seemed to enjoy it very much - we chatted away, made each other laugh.
