你好! Students taking Mandarian Chinese just returned from a Beijing Adventure! We all hiked to the highest watchtower on Great Wall. It was so fun to experience China through hands-on activities, including making Bamboo lamps, riding Bamboo bicycles, doing community service at Bethel Orphanage, and more. Tasting authentic local food such as Peking Duck, Hot pot, homemade dumplings and more, and visiting magnificent historical relics to learn the history behind them were also highlights.
It was such a fun trip and everyone mastered the use of chopsticks! As a group leader, I really enjoyed the trip with our students and feel gratified when listening to them speak Chinese in the restaurants and bargaining in the shop!
