This research aims to fairly and truly demonstrate expat teachers’ experience in China during the Covid-19 global pandemic. More specifically, this project studies factors such as the Covid-19 crises that influence how expat teachers adapt to and interact with Chinese culture. The researcher filmed the collected stories from foreign teachers into a documentary. The documentary seeks to acknowledge that how expat teachers’ life experiences during the Covid- 19 global pandemic reflect the global crisis that all humans are facing.
