"Vermont delegation of educators travelled to China on November 10th to the 18th to develop relationships with Chinese schools.

We visited Southwest Foreign Language School, BFSU, Stilwell Foreign Language School and Yucai Secondary School. We were warmly welcomed wherever we visited. Hopefully, this has encouraged a deeper collaboration between our schools and confidence in expanding the experience for our students. We look forward to working with these schools in the future.

The trip provided an authentic China experience for us. The activities planned were very educational, meaningful and fun. Whether we were visiting schools, exploring historical sites, shopping, seeing pandas or dining out we appreciated (Mark) Nan’s organization and friendship as he guided us around. Nan’s food choices were especially outstanding."
