Beverly Jiang sends this update from Shanghai where four Peddie students are set to begin a summer intensive Chinese language study.
Julia Cunningham ’13, Dylan Nir ’13, Zoe Gilbard ’14 and Philip Leblebicioglu ’14 arrived in Shanghai safely on July 8th and were greeted by two EFZ teachers and myself. All four students carried their language pledge out as soon as they landed and spoke only Chinese to the teachers and among themselves. They had an excellent head start! After two hours of break, they headed to the eatery plaza near EFZ, where they had an authentic delicious Sichuan dinner. Today, July 9th, they start their language program.
