Thomas’ Summer Camp Experience

Q: What does a typical day of camp look like?

T: First you have a field trip which is really fun, then you have lunch, a bit of a break so you can rest, and after that, we start learning Chinese. And my favorite field trip so far has been rock climbing… because I love sports and climbing is one of my favorite things to do.

Q: What do you think of the camp in general?

T: It’s a very fun and social place and you have a lot of fun here and you learn things too. You learn how to speak Chinese and write. I made new friends here and I like it here. Besides, it has slightly changed me to be more outgoing because usually, I’m very introverted.

Q: Would you like to recommend us to your friend?

T: I would recommend my friends to come here because it’s a very fun place to be and you get taught Mandarin in a way that I’ve never had it taught and you can make new friends at the same time.
