Jake has enjoyed his experience at EF as well as in China. He enjoys seeing his current and former students use English confidently to communicate in their daily lives and open up their lives to new job or study possibilities. Jake enjoys travelling around China when he can, and one of his favourite moments was his trip to the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an.
