Canadian student Breanna spent six weeks in Beijing on the short term EduCare program.

How was your experience on the program?

This has been my first time traveling anywhere outside of my country so this experience has been very new and exciting!

How was learning Chinese?

I thought that learning the language would be much more difficult but since you are immersed in the culture and everyone speaks the language you pick it up quite quickly!

How was the support provided by our in-country partner, Lopair?

The Lopair staff have been very accommodating and were very helpful with the process of getting ready to leave for the trip as well as upon my arrival!

What was the best bit about the program?

You get to meet a lot of new people from different countries as well as some from your own! On the day that we arrived in China, I met someone that lives in the same city as I do as well as goes to the same college and is in the same program as me! But we only met the day we got off the plane in China!

Would you recommend the program to a friend and why?

This is an amazing program and has been such a great experience! I would highly recommend this program to anyone who loves adventures and working with children!!
