Success Stories

Teach & Travel Testimonial

I was so lucky to get placed in Changsha, at such a great school as well. I couldn't fault the treatment we received in the slightest. We had so many amazing experiences, I know it sounds cliché but every day was different and I couldn't have organised anything like this without help from ImmerQi.
