This is the foyer of the Neihu District branch of the KoJen English Cram School chain that I was doing some substitute classes in. The man in the blue shirt is Chris, the head foreign teacher of this branch from England and a really honestly good human being. He’s soft spoken, but very determined in what he does, and just radiates goodwill towards those around him. It really reflects in the office culture of the branch, which is very laid back and relaxed and almost “West Coast” in it’s feeling and style. Not that they’re slackers, everything gets done properly and carefully, but it’s not a high pressure environment at all. I have to say I really enjoy working at this school, and still teach a writing class there on weekends.
