Language Pledge in Beijing

It was a big day for us all in Beijing. After a night’s rest, students were all ready to go for their first day at the MMLA Beijing Academy. They started off with some testing and a taste of classes in the morning. We could tell everyone was having a good time, because we could hear students laughing all the way from our office!

Arrival in Comillas

At exactly 1:25 pm (Spain time!), 48 students, two teachers and the activities coordinator arrived at the ABBA Comillas Hotel. They are pretty tired, but we are checking them in and they will go up to their rooms to shower and rest. They will have lunch after that and then unpack and nap. There is a planned walk around town and then back to the hotel for the welcome meeting and signing of the Language Pledge.

Meanwhile...in Beijing

We know that all of our students are probably packing and preparing for an exciting summer in Beijing, but our staff has already touched down and is working hard to make sure everything is ready for students’ arrival. Our office is getting set up, student materials are being prepared, and RAs have even started making hand made dorm signs for each room.

We are all looking forward to meeting all our students soon!
