My name is Benny Liao, I am from United States from Provo, Utah. Choosing to come to China was one of the best things I have ever done with my life. HomeStay China selected me to go to Guiyang, China, a place in China where many Chinese don’t even know about. I did not know what to expect when I got there, however it was the perfect place for me. The family that I stayed in were the most hospitable and caring family that I could have. They treated me just like I was part of their family and was warmly welcomed. I had to teach their daughter(11 years old) and their son(13 years old), and also play with their youngest son(4 years old). Teaching English with these children could be difficult at first because I did not have very much experience, but once you learn to know the children better you will get the idea of how to teach them. The children are very hard working and are dedicated to learning English. I have noticed that they have a very strict way of learning, so they learn very quick. Overall, I love the family that I lived with and they are been a great part of why Guiyang was so great. Life in Guiyang is truly a lifetime experience, there is so much to do in the city. So many great places to see, and people to meet. Going to amazing villages out of the city, and visiting the malls and temples all around the area is so fun. The best part of my life in Guiyang is because of the other foreigners that you meet here. They become part of your life and learn to help each other. I have made friends here that I will treasure for the rest of my life.
