A cool blog about living in China as a foreign teacher
Here’s a nice blog by a U.S. college student who’s got a younger cousin in a Mandarin immersion school in the states.
This young woman graduated from Oberlin College last spring after majoring in East Asian Studies and studying Chinese. She’s now on a two year fellowships to teach at a university in Shanxi province. The two Oberlin students who got the fellowship live in a hundreds of year old courtyard house in Taigu on campus. It’s where the movie Raise the Red Lantern was filmed.
It’s a nice slice of life of an American college student living in China. I recommend scrolling back to the very beginning so you can follow her on-going journey the whole way.
