To the students and teachers of Dazhou Foreign Language School :
I just wanted to write and thank you for the kindness you showed me and my fellow teacher Brendan during our time at your school. From the moment we arrived on Friday morning, you all were very excited to see us and welcomed us with open arms to your campus, and made sure that we were well taken care of if we ever had a question or concern. I have to tell you I haven’t had a welcoming such as the one that I received when I came to your campus community. That is something that will stay with me for a long time, and for that I am very thankful to all of you.
In closing, I would like to encourage all of you to continue your English studies. I realize they may be difficult at some times, but the reward is also very great. Stay with it, and thanks again for your hospitality.
