Hello, I’m Jimmy – I was born London. I’ve always had an innate wanderlust. When I was 3 years old I ran away from home - my mother found me in the cab of a huge lorry behind the wheel. After that she was in the habit of tying me to the kitchen table. I studied psychology at university and this coupled with my journey down life’s path has made me realise people are strange and occasionally interesting. After working for a large UK company for a number of years the wanderlust kicked in again so I travelled to many a new and interesting place and met many strange people. I even worked as a gaucho (cowboy) on a sheep and cattle ranch in Uruguay. Teaching English was always on my radar and I had a wonderful experience completing a CELTA course in Buenos Aires last year. I like Changchun as the people are down to earth, friendly and only a little bit strange! I’d certainly recommend BDW as it’s a safe port of call in the stormy seas of ESL teaching.
