Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

I love every thing about the courses. I spoke in ways i never thought i should. I learned about the chinese secrets that my Asian friends dont mention about china. I feel i am closer to their culture and i can understand them a little more. I would love to help a lot of international student transition now, because i know how it feels to not understand the language now
