Beijing Tests and Final Days

Hear From Nicole!

July 26, 2017


"Ni hao!

The dreaded day of testing finally arrived today as we retook our stamp ID tests to see our improvements from the beginning of the trip.

I am excited to see how much my Chinese has progressed over the last few weeks; however, the stamp ID test is definitely not one that we have been looking forward to very much. Although the test is a bit tedious and boring, it is an important aspect in order to receive the complete experience of Chinese immersion.

In the morning we had our usual classes and in the afternoon we took the tests (kao shi!).

For lunch we ate Chinese food with our classes again. I think everyone is very excited to eat normal American food in two days!

We had study hall tonight where we finished our homework or prepared for tomorrow’s final performances. I can’t wait to see what people have come up with!

Although I am excited to come home, I am really going to miss all of the amazing people I have met here. Just one more day until America!"
