In addition to my business classes, I have also signed up for advanced Chinese class (it's free!) to help prepare me for the HSK exam (a standardized Chinese language exam that (if you achieve a high score) makes you a more competitive candidate when applying for jobs - especially those in the world of international business. The class meets every Thursday from 6-8:30pm. It is a nice small class (roughly 10 students) so we get a lot of practice and individual attention. I snapped a photo of my Chinese teacher in action, shhh! Also pictured below is the dialogue we were reading for our first class.
My name is Allie or 何爱俐, and I am enjoying my fifth year of living in China. I started out studying Chinese in Beijing at 北京首都经贸大学, then teaching in Shanghai at 上海中学国际部, and now I am attending business school at 北京大学汇丰商学院 in Shenzhen.
