Your students had another wonderful week in China.  We had four days of classes in this week and one--‐day excursion in Suzhou on Friday.  A Tai--‐Chi exercise in the morning starts our regular class day and our students like it very much even though it is hard to learn at the very beginning. The courses are going pretty well and I am glad to see that every student is taking notes carefully and trying to absorb new vocabulary and grammars. In this week’ cultural activities, your students start to learn a traditional Chinese instrument called “ulu Si”and they found it very interesting! In addition, they also had a Peking Opera mask--‐making class and each of them had their very first mask--‐painting work! The excursion in Suzhou was the highlight of this week. In Suzhou, we went to visit the Humble Administrator’ Garden, Suzhou Museum, Great Canal and the Shantang Old Street. Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment.

 It was fun climbing up the rock to get a better view of the garden!

We had a great second week here in China.  All the students are having a good time with their host families as well.  Your students are being very mature which makes our program go really smooth.  We can't wait for the next week and will let you know more then! 
Best, Hangzhou Instructor Team
