Fondest memory: WWW
Fondest memory: I enjoyed my stay at Tsinghua University and enjoyed walking in the university everyday. Inside the university there were shops including grocery and electronics. The university was also close to the Summer Palace and Yuanmingyuan. It's a long way though from the city center and attractions like the Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven. It's also a long way from the airport since it's located on the northwest side of the city.
I remember that the first day I arrived in Beijing, I was a little bit shocked to see this huge Mao statue just accross from our university. I later found out that the building accross was also a university.
When I started to become familiar with my district, it seems that it is not uncommon to find such statues in university...
Beijing has many universities. Most of them are places with a lot of old trees and beautiful gardens. I was fortunate to spend a whole year at the Beijing Language and Culture University, which was then called the Beijing Language Institute.
For more about my time at the BLCU see my travelogue!!!
STUDY MANDARIN AT THE BEIJING LANGUAGE AND CULTURE UNIVERSITY
The school is the origins of the HSK, an international standardized test of Mandarin proficiency. It is also a GREAT place to meet some FANTASTIC people from ALL OVER THE WORLD! Many foreign service officers are sent to BCLU for language training.
Fondest memory: This is me and my roommate/sister/mentor/shoulder to cry on, Estella, who I will always cherish...
