Q: Is this your first time in China?
A: Yes it is. I spent one month at the Mandarin House School in Beijing and now I’m for one month in Shanghai.
Q: How are you finding your studies in China?
A: I’m very excited about my progress in the Chinese language. Every day I learn many things that I try to use in my daily life. Being understood by Shanghai rén it’s very satisfying. I would never have thought I would learn Chinese so quickly. Teachers are very good; they expect a lot from us but it’s definitely rewarding.
Q: What program did you enroll in? Has the program been what you expected?
A: I’m following the Standard course (elementary level). The program focuses on communication skills. The teaching method is very good and the students learn very rapidly how to communicate in typical daily situations. This is exactly what I was expecting! In order to learn how to read and write Chinese characters students should enroll for the intensive course. I suggest students considering applying to chose the intensive course.
Q: What do you find most interesting about Shanghai?
A: I really enjoy looking for new restaurants every day. In Shanghai you can find delicious food from all over the world.

So I said to the shopping assistant: “wo yao…?and show the spoon. The woman took me to the ice-cream isle in the supermarket. I couldn´t believe it. She and I just start laughing since we didn´t understand each other.
