During Brittani's stay, she taught English at the Canada-China Culture and Education Association, as well as at another school in Yuen Long, New Territories. Through her first contact with primary 5 local students, she remarked that students in Hong Kong studied harder than those in Canada and were very obedient.
"The students actively asked questions and talked to me, which helped me to adjust to Hong Kong life very quickly. I had a very happy two months in Hong Kong!"
Colleagues were also very helpful in teaching her Cantonese. "Cantonese is hard to learn, but I know how to bargain in the market now".
Brittani especially loved going back to Hong Kong island on weekends, allowing her to explore places outside of the usual tourist attractions.
After the summer holiday, she returned to Canada to further her studies, but thinks that real life experience is so valuable that she hopes to return to work in Hong Kong after her graduation.
