 At the invitation of WITT ( the Western institute of Technology at Taranaki ),25 other teachers from different provinces and I were fortunate enough to visit New Plymouth in New Zealand for nearly one month. The journey from Shanghai to New Zealand took over 12 hours. So I was tired but excited during the long travel .
  It is a great chance for me to improve my English outside China.I really appreciate the chance abroad.So I do all I can to see, to hear and to learn what New Zealanders are like.In general,my impressions on New Zealand are as follows:
  The environment here is very good. The scenary is beautiful and is good for living.People here get on very well with nature.To put it another way,they are in harmony with each other. Most of the  houses here are only one-storey and not any security measures or protective-nets can be found, because few bad things happen here and the crime rate is among the lowest in the world..
  What struck me most is that few people can be found on the streets, on the contrary to most cities in China which are crowded with people. Actually, I am not used to such a silent environment at the very beginning. Maybe an environment with a bit more people is more suitable for us Chinese .
Maybe just because New Plymouth has a small population, New Zealanders enjoy a cosy life.Usually, New Zealanders work from 9:00am till 3:00pm with a break of one and a half hours at noon.On Friday evening,their weekends begin and in the following two days, New Zealanders devote themselves to enjoying family life,going autumn outing,surfing,and even go bungy-jumping.It seems that they are completely lost in their own way of life.
  New Zealanders are warm-hearted and carefree.They are open-minded and love sports outdoors like hockey,soccer,unicycle etc; New Zealanders are helpful and easy-going.They will lend you a hand whenever strangers need a help.I like New Zealand and I love New Zealanders---the KIWI people.
