Back online

I returned to China and began my new job on August 1. My blog has been neglected because of serious computer issues. Can’t get a needed Toshiba part for my netbook in China because they don’t import Toshiba parts. Had to buy a Chinese computer but am having a little difficulty navigating because many instructions are in Chinese. Also, I get Chinese advertisement popups which are slightly disconcerting. Can’t upload photos on this computer either, so have I’ll have to make other arrangements to get photos on the site.

Yesterday I worked with a Chinese high school student returning to Canada to graduate from a Canadian high school. She is preparing for the TOEFL exam. This English exam is required for foreign students to enter American Universities. The exam tests reading, writing, speaking and listening, all on the computer. I am once again humbled by the motivation, diligence and achievement required for overseas students to study in the U.S.
