Xi’an Foreign Languages School: Where it all starts!

February 22, 2012

We all awoke this morning to a foggy spring morning in Xi’an, the ancient capital of China.  Then we did what every student and teacher all around the world does:  We went to school.  Of course, not every student gets to introduce him or herself to 500 or more classmates!  We spent today in classes (fun for some, who read to students in English, a little harder for others, who listened to a lecture on Chinese history-in Chinese).  Here are a few promised pics from last night, when we met our host families, and from today in school.  Enjoy!

    Great blog and pictures! 🙂 Sounds like you had a great time!
    Also, do you know the address of this school? I recently visited them on a school trip a couple of weeks ago and would like to send them a postcard or something but I can’t seem to find any information about the school anywhere on the internet… 🙁
