Going to School at Kunming Foreign Language School

March 24, 2014

We heard lots of great stories about fun times yesterday.  It sounds like there was lots of shopping, movie watching and laughing going on with all of the students while Mr. Penley and I had wonderful day hiking and seeing some temples…fun was had by all!  Today was back to business as we spent our day in classes at the school.  The first part of the morning was spent in various classrooms observing English, Physics and Math classes.  Then we were off to our calligraphy class. During our lunch break, there was lots of activity out on the playground, with some pick-up basketball as well as just more time spent with new friends…it was pretty warm out so there was also some ice cream consumption.  Finally, we tried our hand at tying Chinese knots.
