Hello everybody!How are you doing?
Hi, Rebekah！We are good! Thanks! How are you?Welcome to AC!!
Hi, 贝贝, 你好！Nice to meet you!I’m calmvoca. Welcome to AC, and I will be the hostess of tonight.Hope we’ll all have a good time here.
Thank Li Laoshi for introducing you to us.We have collected MANY questions from ACers. Now, let’s get started.
Q1: Why do you choose to learn Chinese?
Which one is harder to learn, Chinese or Spanish?
Can you summarize the differences of the American, Spanish and Chinese culture a little bit?
It is nice to meet you all. Thank you for having me.
Q1： I want to learn Chinese because I love to experience different cultures and languages. I will be studying International Affairs next year at the George Washington University in Washington DC. I believe that China is a rising world power and hopefully I will be able to work with China in a career in the future.
I found Spanish to be easier to learn that Chinese since I started speaking Spanish when I was very young and have had many years to study it. Hopefully I will become more comfortable speaking Chinese the more I study it.
Congratulations to you, for having been admitted by the George Washington University in Washington DC.
I agree with you on the point that learning a different language is also a fantastic way to experience that culture.
Your Chinese is good. You will make further progress!
Q2: When did you visit China? How long did you stay?
Was there any change in your view of China after your Chinese tour?
I visited China this past summer for five weeks with a study program called ChinaQuest. The program was really ecxiting. I studied Chinese at the Beihang University in Beijing. We traveled by night train from beijing to xi'an, zheng jou, shang hai, and inner mongolia.
After my visit, my views of China have changed. The people are very friendly and some welcomed us into their homes for traditional Chinese dinners. I love 火锅！
