Elections are over. My true blue candidate Bernie Sanders took a shellacking but still came out with 4 states. Go Bernie! Speak truth to power and the revolution will come, maybe not this year, but certainly, the articulate minority is losing ground to the overt majority of Trumpians. Oh dear.....I watch this US election closely. Why not Hillary? She will prevail, and I sincerely hope, she is ready for the mudslinging from Trump. I hope she can handle it. But I will remain a Bernie girl forever. Fight on, Bernie. Wasn't Chris Rock just glorious at the Academy Award Ceremony. Black representation, phenomenally done.

One of my students at a noted boarding school is facing a tiff of she called me...My response. Fight he power to the top of the authority pool, diplomatically and with evidence. A smile helps. Hold that head up, walk through the much, keep your eyes on the sun. Ignorance usually melts right away under the radar of intelligence, articulateness and excellent oral delivery. Malign no one. Speak your truth quietly and forcefully. The best outcome will prevail. I have been there before.

Shanghai, one of the world’s most populous and important cities, is the largest and traditionally the most developed metropolis in China. In recent decades, it has gained international importance as the country’s main center for finance and fashion. Combined with its status as a center of Mandarin in a linguistically diverse country, these qualities make Shanghai an ideal location for your intensive Chinese language study and cultural immersion.

The Great Nation Group ChinaStudyTour Summer Program in Shanghai, offers you the

opportunity to explore the Chinese language study within the course of a two-week summer

session . The program offers an intensive courses in modern Chinese at the entry, intermediate

and advanced levels, all of which include a curriculum materials designed to develop and

reinforce all aspects of Chinese language ability—including speaking, oral comprehension,

reading, and writing, in authentic cultural contexts.

The course structure is designed to maximize your language acquisition, with four hours of class (lectures, drill sections, and a one-on-one session) every day, Monday through Saturday, from morning until early afternoon. You will devote much of the remainder of each weekday to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities (e.g., calligraphy and martial arts), as well as an opportunity to share time with local Chinese students and teachers in a relaxed setting.

On the weekends, there are performances (e.g., acrobatics show) and excursions (e.g., Huangpu

River, West Lake, the Bund, Yayuan Garden, Temple of Hidden Souls). You may also spend time on weekends with host families to experience the daily lives and customs of Chinese

families. This school/society nexus gives the program its unique participatory flavor, with

language instruction continually related to its Shanghai setting.

The school chosen to host the Great Nation Group will be of the highest quality and reputation. It will be fully supportive of the aims and objectives of our program, and dedicated to the comfort and security of the students. The ChinaStudyTour Summer Program in Shanghai welcomes students between the ages of 8 and 18. Please call us to apply or visit us at for additional information.
