MHC in Beijing

Mount Holyoke's intensive, eight-week course in Chinese at Beijing Language and Culture University

July 19, 2006

Welcome to Beijing!

Hello, my name is Kait Szydlowski and I am spending my summer studying at Beijing Language and Culture University. As a potential Asian Studies minor, I came here with the intention to not only improve my Mandarin, but more importantly experience first hand Chinese culture (at least here in Beijing). Whether it is training for this year's MHC cross country season with 30 other people on the track at 5:30 in the morning with 30 or chatting with tea shop owners down the street, I have already seen and experienced so much here at BCLU. I look forward to writing about more of this wonderful experience.
