Conquered the Great Wall of China
What the Beijing Academy did this weekend: Over the weekend, the students conquered the Great Wall of China. They walked three miles on a non-renovated, authentic part of the wall. After the wall, the students were allowed a lot time to reflect on how the language pledge is affecting their time in China.
The self reflection time was very beneficial to the students as they got to here why each of the students were in China. Also, this allowed us to make changes for the final half of the program. Since, last Friday was an excursion, the students finished the weekend with a day full of classes on Sunday. Now, we have a busy week planned ahead!
