By (Chinese Medicine, China Academy of Chinese Medicine Sciences) - abroad from 12/01/2012 to 12/31/2013 with

ChuShan Institute: Classical Chinese Language & Traditional Culture

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
This place drives me to miss my family. I love it. In ChuShan, I can know of the Modern China and the Ancient China. I love this Private House-Class of Chinese Traditional Culture. On 1st October, we celebrated the birthday of Confucius and learned the Classic Confucian teachings. It let me feel that I have become a smarter person. Meanwhile we tasted the delicious Chinese tea. I felt the peace of my mind. At last, We took the teamwork to prepare dinner and enjoyed it, like a family.

The Avid Adventurer
The wardrobe you packed was better suited for a semester of camping than club hopping. Outdoorsy, you might forgo a crazy night out for an early all-day adventure. You'd rather take in the rich culture of an old town than the metropolis of a modern city, but for you getting off the grid is ideal.
