What the Beijing Academy did today
The group headed into this week after a fun and active weekend exploring Beijing and its sights. Students took in the history at Tiananmen Square and the nearby Forbidden city on Saturday. On Sunday, they headed to the Temple of Heaven and strolled through its gardens. In the afternoon, students tried their hands at bargaining for every kind of good imaginable with the famously aggressive vendors at the Pearl Market downtown. Sunday was an especially joyous day as during excursion, students were given time to speak English with classmates.
This afternoon, teachers took their classes to visit a Chinese middle school where students were given a tour of facilities and interacted with teachers and local students. A US-China basketball ensued outside on the playground with the American side eventually coming out on top.
Check back on Monday to read more about the Beijing Academy!
