Elijah Abdullah, originally from Florida in the United States, joined Dipont Education this summer. He is working as a history teacher in our international curriculum center in Shenzhen Foreign Languages School.
He’s been a classroom teacher for more than a decade and has spent six of those years living and working in China. He and his family have been very happy in China and he enjoys teaching Chinese students who, he says, are extremely respectful of their teachers and keen to learn.
We caught up with Elijah via video call to chat about his experiences of teaching in China and how he came to join Dipont Education in Shenzhen:
Shenzhen Foreign Languages School is one of the best schools in Shenzhen city. The school is located on a quiet and clean campus at the foot of some splendid forested mountains, with a string of beaches not far away.
Shenzhen is one of China’s most modern, wealthy, clean and green cities. International restaurants, shopping malls and hotels are common and standard of living is high.
