About this title


This book, without question, captures the 'real' China today, as witnessed through the exciting odyssey of two Canadian teachers who worked and lived there for three years.

About the Author:

Gord and Julie Sly taught English for three years in two different areas of China. They, and two other teachers, co-authored, and published books in China to help university students prepare for College English Tests (CETS), required for graduation. The Slys wrote over two-dozen columns for The Kingston Whig Standard about their many experiences, which, along with daily journals, provide some of the material for this book. Gord Sly is a graduate of Queen’s University and was a high school teacher and department head in Kingston for twenty-eight years during which, he occasionally conducted workshops and made presentations at symposiums on Education. Before going to China, he was involved in co-authoring and publishing three high school textbooks in Ontario, and, after returning to Canada, wrote curriculum units for Library and Archives of Canada. He regularly contributes columns, articles, and letters to local newspapers and is a past member of the Community Editorial Board of The Kingston Whig Standard. He enjoys the guitar and singing, and is a veteran of two Boston Marathons. Julie was a registered nurse, who trained at the Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, and worked for many years at a hospital in Kingston. As well as being a writer, she is also a very accomplished artist, whose talent is illustrated on the front cover of this book. As a remarried couple, they share four children and nine grandchildren in the Kingston area, California and Arizona. The Slys currently reside near Odessa, Ontario.
