A dozen Mandarin Chinese language students from the Frederick V. Pankow Center, two teachers and five chaperones are living and studying in China until April 9. L'Anse Creuse junior Nick Viazanko is one of them.
Staying with a host family in Nantong has changed my life for the better. I had the time of my life, and made so many friends. Every student at the school was welcoming. To add on, I feel like my Chinese vocabulary is also starting to grow.
Staying with my host family made me communicate with almost all the Chinese I know. When I didnt know how to say something in Chinese, I would ask and then the family would teach me. Also, sorry for the late delay of the video. My host family did not have good internet connection.
