Feedback on the 2019 Immersion Programme in Beijing

I would like you to share my email with those who would appreciate a thank you.
Re. The 2019 Immersion programme in Beijing.
I have a sincere desire to thank everyone who made this programme and adventure possible. I am enriched with new knowledge, skills and a growing understanding of the Chinese language and culture. Following this well structured programme, I have learned the value of communicating effectively in Mandarin as well as the success that comes from teaching the language within the context of the beautiful cultural settings. It was a life changing experience that had a profound impact on me as a person and as a teacher. 
I am committed to continue my own studies with the purpose to be an effective teacher of Mandarin and also to provide the students with a growing respect and understanding of a culture that spans thousands of years. I will lead them to develop the language skills they need to communicate effectively in mandarin.
I know this trip will benefit my own students as well as the wider school.
My sincere thank you for investing in me and providing this amazing opportunity.
Warm regards
