“The students in the college are friendly, kind, and more than willing to help me with some of my shopping. The students are always cheerful and energetic too. The girls like to study English. During my stay at this college, I attended several concerts, drama plays, and oral English Competitions. Very interesting indeed. Also I had the opportunity to go to some social dinners. They were just great.
The entire Xiasha area is very nice with numerous shops, and very fine restaurants. I found that every where that I went, I was welcomed. Also the transportation system is very reliable and cheap.”
