My mother said to me, "You like Chinese. There's a study abroad next summer going to China. Oh, it's during the Olympics, too. Do you want to go?" My reply before going: "Um ... yeah, sure. I guess I should sign up for Chinese again in the fall." My reply after going: "Sweeeeeeeeeet."
I'm an undergraduate student at the University of Delaware travelling on a study abroad program to Beijing, China to study Chinese medicine and sport, HESC484/WOMS484 Women in Sports, and HESC4xx History of the Olympics, and to attend the Olympics!
While there, we get to tourist, learn about Chinese culture (especially sports and leisure), take a class, and, y'know, go see Olympic games.
