I have returned to Seattle - just in time for some beautiful springtime weather - but I'll never forget my time in Beijing!
My visit to China was an incredible learning experience and studying there helped me to improve my language skills considerably. I really believe that intensive and immersion teaching techniques are very effective for learning a language .
Living in Beijing also exposed me to many things and experiences that I've never encountered before. Aside from studying Mandarin, I discovered so much about the challenges and rewards of living in China's capital. I've certainly gained a better perspective on the lives of the people living in Beijing.
Now that I'm back home, I'm going to take some time to get settle in before my next adventure. I'll keep you updated!
