I have been really happy to join Huayang Academy for their spring semester. Every day they have been very welcoming, from providing coffee anytime to helping with any sort of trouble or question I had regarding my living in China. Lori and Amanda helped me a lot, especially for the good laugh in the morning and the family environment they have always encouraged. In the meantime my Chinese has improved a lot since I arrived, thanks to this I have achieved excellent friendships with other chinese people which also made my experience very authentic. I thank Huayang a lot, and I know already that I will see my lovely teachers in the near future!
