Two other trips by teachers and students to China are also in the planning stages right now.
Responses, in a word(s) from our China explorers:
“crazy, informative, incredibly fun, interesting, different, amazing, culturally educational, once in a lifetime opportunity, awesome!”
“Watching the excitement on the faces’ of our students as they meet their Chinese peers…”
Greetings from SPIRAL International.
"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...
This tour is especially designed for our American student peer leaders, host families, and high school students studying the Chinese language to explore and learn the country and culture, but teachers and educators are also encouraged to participate.
It was quite an amazing journey from Beijing to Chongqing, to say the least, and that 25-hour train ride was nothing short of unforgettable.
