Eric Booth, Class of 2009
“I am teaching English writing at Huazhong Agricultural University in Wuhan. Being in this country has been the greatest experience of my life - so great that I have opted to stay for another year. I can go to a restaurant and read the menu (instead of doing the ‘point and guess’ procedure), I can go travel on a whim without nagging somebody for a translator, or I can chat it up with a local at the gym and challenge him to a swimming race. I’ve even received a part-time job offer from a French quality control company. A foreigner who speaks well has a very ‘big face’, so the language is the first rite of passage to immersion in China.” Eric now works as a Customs Brokerage Agent at Expeditors in Houston, Texas.
