This was our Chinese Exchange group’s last weekend in China, and they made the most of it with a tour around Beijing. On Saturday, the group toured Tiananmen Square, saw the seat of the Chinese government, and walked through the Forbidden City. And if that wasn’t enough, we also took a rickshaw tour around Old Beijing’s hutong (small streets) and ate a local lunch prepared by an elderly resident.

On Sunday, our students spent the morning climbing the Great Wall of China! The part were climbed is called Juyong Pass, where the wall literally goes up the side of the mountain. This didn’t deter our students from going all the way to the top. In the afternoon, we took it easy by walking around Beijing’s Olympic Park.

We head back to America on Tuesday, and know that our students have memories which will last a lifetime!

Today, our Chinese exchange group left Fuzhou and arrived in Beijing. Again, we at the Linden Public Schools would like to express our deep gratitude to the students and parents of Fuzhou #3 High School for hosting us, and the school’s staff for all their effort in making our program run smoothly.

Upon arrival in Beijing, our group ate a delicious Beijing roast duck lunch and then toured the Temple of Heaven, a temple complex where Chinese emperors prayed for rain and good harvests. We even ran into a young couple there taking wedding photos who were nice enough to include us in their pictures! After touring the Temple, we did some shopping at the Hongqiao Market.

Our students are now staying with their third and final home stays from the Beijing New Talent Academy. We will continue touring Beijing over the weekend on this, the last leg of our trip!

The parents were then given the needed materials to reinforce this language arts curriculum component at home.

Our students in China had the chance to have some fun today! In the afternoon, we went to an indoor ice skating rink. Nikolas Christodoulou, Claudia Rusin, and Antonio Echeverria all set a great example by teaching their classmates from LHS and their hosts from Fuzhou #3 High School how to skate! After skating, the students went back to the high school and had the chance to see first hand how Chinese students relax after a long day of class, and were not afraid to join in too.

Today was also the birthday of one of our hosting students – Simon Liu. A very Happy Birthday from everyone here in Linden! Simon’s family was kind enough to treat us all to dinner, where we got to enjoy local Fuzhou food. After dinner, Grace Wu, who is hosting Mr. Bender, generously invited us into her home to participate in a tea ceremony.

So one again, we want to wish Simon a very Happy Birthday! As we say in Chinese, “sheng ri kuai le!”

Our group left the Xiamen Foreign Language School today, and headed to Fuzhou, where they will be staying with host families from #3 High School.

Before we left, the Vice Principal of Xiamen Foreign Language School thanked us for our stay, and welcomed us back next year. Then, our students put on a performance with their new Chinese friends. First, they sang “Jasmine Flower,” a traditional folk tune. After that, students from both countries sang “The Cup Song” from the movie Pitch Perfect.

Our students are now staying in with families from Fuzhou #3 High School, and will have the chance to enjoy the local sights, while learning about the language and local culture in the evenings.
