Cho Roland Nkwah from Cameroon started his teaching career in Binzhou, East China's Shandong province in 2005 in an effort to help foster greater levels of cultural understanding between the two countries.

"I've longed to visit China since my childhood," said Roland, who is now teaching at Binzhou University.

His wife Njeck Victorine Tembuck later followed in his footsteps and has been teaching English at the university since 2007.

"China is changing every day. The country has made rapid development in economy, culture, urban construction since I came here," Roland said. "If you revisit a city a year later, you will find that everything there has changed."

During his time in Binzhou University, Roland undertook a number of key English teaching tasks due to his outstanding professionalism as well as teaching and research ability. He has also received many honorary titles. In 2008, he was awarded the title of Outstanding Foreign Teacher by the university.

The English course he taught in the Flying College has laid a good language foundation for students to gain flight training abroad. 

In addition to teaching, Roland and Victorine have played an active role in supporting education and local services in China's countryside. The couple also joined the Binzhou Overseas Friendship Association, which has contributed to economic, social, educational and cultural exchanges in Binzhou.
