"My experience in China was unbelievably fascinating. I loved exploring Shanghai and getting to know a city that was both old and modern, both Eastern and Western, and truly ten cities combined into one. I loved getting better at Chinese and being able to understand people more clearly as time passed, as well as being able to read the language more and more everyday. I made many international friends as well as local friends and we learned a lot from each other in terms of language and culture. My time in China made me fall in love with the country and I am already planning my next trip to Shanghai."
