Teaching Tour to China, 2003-2007

My corporate training in the USA came to a quick halt, so I started looking at other places to teach. I found an open field in China. I only inteneded to go to China for a short or one term. One term ended up being two terms, and then another university, totally 5 schools I taught in. I even had the opportunity to write 2 text books, one on "Computer English" and the other "KIS Oral English", (Keep It Simple).
Your comments are welcome.
