First day of training

Dongguan, China

Today was our first day of training - we had a tour of the school, and I was amazed by the facilities here. They have about 10 small music rooms with a piano in each room - proper acoustic rooms. There is also a dance studio and a few computer rooms. Every classroom has a huge flatscreen monitor/TV so you can save things onto a flash drive and then project them in the class - like games, powerpoint presentations etc. When you put the flash drive in though all the instructions on the screen are in Chinese - so we'll just have to get used to that and learn which buttons to press!

Andrew went off this morning to the hospital and had a bit of an adventure there - he saw 3 different Doctors and was finally taken to the 'human manipulation room' (I think if I'd been there I would've left when I saw that sign!!!). None of the Drs spoke English but Andrew had a Chinese English teacher from the school with him. In the 'manipulation room' he was pummelled back into shape and then had some kind of electric magnetic treatment (ie lots of electrodes on his back!). When he came out his back actually did feel better. They advised him to go again tomorrow but he hasn't decided about that yet.

In the afternoon - back at the school - Andrew and I met one of the computer teachers - 'Jack' - he was lovely and has invited us to his home for dinner sometime. He asked us if we like Chinese food and when we said yes he 'Do you? Are you sure you're not cheating me?'. He was very cute!!

That's all for today - bye for now! Ruth
