Farewell

As some of you may or may not know, today is my last day teaching here at the study bar. I hope I have made it clear to you that I am a person who wants to save the world, and although it is not probable that I will truly save the world, I believe I can still make a difference by doing something little everyday. Thus, I hope I have not only helped you with your English studies, but have also made a contribution to your life; I hope that what I have talked about in and out of class has not gone to waste. If you remember and analyze what we've talked about, then I would have achieved my goal.

In the 8 months that I've taught here, I have purposely picked important topics to discuss because I believe it is a way to develop society and humanity in general. I know that not all of you were interested in those topics and I know that some of those topics might have been completely foreign to you, but I can only hope that discussing about these matters has given you insight into the future.

I am glad to say that I have learned a lot from you. You have given me a chance to see inside Chinese people's minds and as a result, I can definitely say that if we all just think more, we would be able to understand each other better. I do not believe our minds work very differently and even though there are differences between our cultures, I believe critical thinking can surpass these differences and ultimately unite us.

So here I must leave you, our journey together has come to an end, it is time for you to be more independent. I honestly hope that you will further develop yourself and pursue your passions.
