Summer: Chengdu, China

As stated on a previous blog, I was accepted into a month-long educational-program with a group of 20 or so to go to Chengdu, China this coming August through September!I’m super excited by then again scared. I will be the only kid there that doesn’t know a lick of Chinese. So my goal for this summer? After I return from my lovely trip with Em and Janeemebe from Vietnam and Thailand, is to study Chinese on my own! If anyone would like to help..PLEASE DO =D

There is an activity EVERYDAY on the calendar for this Chengdu trip. I only see “free day” once, and that is the day before we leave………. lol Some of the things on the calendar are:

– Visit Zigong Dinosaur Museum and spend the weekend in Li Zhuang

– Visit Intel, Microsoft and Foreign Enterprises

– Visit Qingyang Gong– Daoism Temple, Leshan Giant Buddha, Emei Mountain

– Visit Panda Research Base

and the list goes on =D

The adviser for our group seems VERY motherly.. I hope this goes well haha

    Woa, how awesome is that?
    You know, you can always watch Chinese dramas to learn basic expressions. Here’s a great site I found with some expressions, pronunciations and the little drawings for words (I don’t really know what’s the English word for that).

    Be brave, Chinese is easier to learn than French.
