Interview with Jubal

HCE Mentor

Jubal attended HCE Mentor program in Beijing from December 2014 until June 2015. He graduated from Washington State University. He arrived in Bejing in winter, which is very cold and windy. But he still enjoyed his time in Beijing. His host kid Nemo is 7 years old and he is very cute. They usually had their own way to communicate with each other, for example, they always played Lego together, both of them created an idea for their Lego model and after they finished it, they expressed their ideas to each other. This is a very good way to help the host kid learn English.

Making a stable schedule helped Jubal have a good time in Bejing. Nemo went to school from Monday to Friday, so Jubal was usually available in the daytime on workdays, sometimes Jubal needed to teach the host Mom English, they may read a book or watch a movie.

Jubal said he really loved the day off part, he had every Wednesday and Thursday as day off, the program coordinator took them to some interesting places in Beijing.
