* Overall educational experience
Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.
I loved it--such an educational experience! Since it was such an immersive program, I feel like I learned so much more than I would have in a classroom. Being there and learning about China was so much better than being in a classroom in the U.S., learning about China!
If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program?
The other choice I had was going to Europe. I love Europe, and I know a lot about it, but I've already spent a lot of time there. I didn't know that much about China, and I had never really thought about going. So, I decided to go to China to broaden my cultural experience, and I'm so glad I did! I love experiencing cultures different from my own, and being in China--meeting wonderful people and eating wonderful food--definitely made me want to go back. It was very worth a trip there, and I would go back in a heartbeat!
