Intensive Mandarin Chinese Language, Summer of 2018
My name is Yilu Lo. I am currently a Junior Student in high school in America, and I’m planning to study abroad this summer in China and Taiwan! Why?!? To get away from your parents? Ahaha not quite! First of all, my primary reason is to take the ‘Intensive Mandarin Course’ or the ‘Private 1/1 Course’ and improve my Chinese Proficiecy so I’m able to apply for certain Chinese programs at either Chinese or Taiwanese universities. This requires taking the HSK or the TOCFL test depending where you will like to study as an International Degree Seeking Student. The certificate will be awarded, and it will be significant for my future and goals. Next, I will get to experience the taste of local cuisines, life in China, sight seeings from the ‘Great Wall of China’ to the ‘Forbidden City’, and interact with the local people! Chinese culture immersion and tradtitions, how cool?! Did I ever told you I am Hmong-American, a subgroup of the ‘Miao’, the sixth largest ethnic group in China? I might even get to meet some ethnic minorities from the 56 ethnic groups!!! Wow!
