First Days in Nanyao Village

Hello Language 4B Friends and Family!

I’m Benjy Renton — an alum of the Language 6-Week program with Dragons in 2015 and currently living and studying in Yunnan this summer.

I had the opportunity to meet this wonderful group over the past few days, traveling with them to the Nanyao Village (my homestay village back in 2015) on the overnight train. After settling into their host families, everyone started Chinese class and we had a discussion about China’s migration, urbanization and environmental policy. Here are some pictures from the days.

It was a great group to spend these past few days with and I wish them all the best in the next few weeks! Thanks to Ryann, Lillian, Spencer, Eli, Nichos, Jake, Daniel, Marcus, Avery and Tindy!
