The best part was that moment when the lightbulb would come on. The glow in their eyes when something that seemed so foreign now looked slightly clearer, was pure joy.

Having never travelled further than 60km away from home, Baphiwe decided going to China to officially kickstart her teaching career would be a fantastic idea. She was right. She taught kids aged 3 to 18 at one of the biggest language schools in China. She enjoyed listening to their stories, discussing the history of culture with them, and mostly seeing them become more confident in the four major English learning areas, reading, speaking, writing and listening.

Baphiwe worked in Istanbul, Turkey after that and then settled in Kobe, Japan for two years. In Japan she worked at a language school, teaching mainly Business English. It was as challenging as it was fun. Many of the students were already fluent and were getting ready to emigrate or to attend conferences where the language would be English.

Baphiwe says the key to her success as a teacher is that she just loves people and helping people understand things.
