These are the emails which we sent home to Australia from the two schools in China at which we were teachers They were written as our lives progressed from day to day Our thoughts were written down as we then felt them, not a year or later when memories had dimmed They were written days and sometimes only hours after the experiences and emotions which they describe They were written to friends from whom nothing was held back They describe the schools, the teachers, the students, places we visited and the experiences which took over the greater part of our lives during those two years The emails are as they were originally written They contain the normal errors and bad grammar that go to make up emails They have not been edited, they have not been censored, nor have they been sanitised The 84,623 words comprised herein are, as the title states, emails from China....

EMAILS FROM CHINA [Two Aussie Teachers Far From Home] Reviews
How many times have we said 'If only I could.........' and then never followed up on our dreams. As you read through these informal emails Robert and his wife sent to family and friends back home, you will appreciate the big step they took to move out of their comfort zone and into a country where everything was so very different. Thanks to their handy guide book, they experienced so much that most of us have just dreamed about.
As someone who has previously lived and taught English in China, this collection of letters brought back a lot of fond memories, and regrets that I hadn't kept my own journal during that time. Rob and May's writing is witty and captures some of the crazy occurrences that keep popping up as a foreign teacher in China.
A very interesting look at the culture shock and exciting new experiences of living and working in a brand new place, with the two different perspectives from husband and wife. I appreciated the friendliness which comes from reading Rob and May's real "email newsletters" to friends and family.
Robert and May embark on a teaching experience in China and recount their experiences to their friends and family in a series of emails.This is a funny,well written book which also describes their sightseeing and travels.I recommend all people who want to travel to China or work overseas to read it.
It's hard to imagine two people from the business world taking such a big step into the unknown. Having recently done a fully escorted tour into China and worrying all the time about getting lost and losing my tour group because of the enormous crowds I fully admire these two for doing what they did . A fascinating lot of emails !
An interesting view of the life of an English teacher in China's experiences.
I really enjoyed reading the collection of emails.. It does make you realise there is more of the world to see than just the bubble you live in!
Emails from authors sent to family and friends during their stint as English teachers in China. Very entertaining. Some editing to minimise duplication of stories might help. Useful to read first before Robert Mitchell other China/Aust books.
