THE BALANCING ACT

Leave a Comment

The Study China Programme is a three-week intense programme, studying Mandarin in addition to another module (at Nanjing University our options were Chinese History or Can the heart think?).

Each weekday consisted of a three-hour Mandarin lessons with a two-hour lunch break and then another three-hour lesson, but in our chosen module or some sort of arranged activity. It was rare I would have any free time before 5.30pm. This was a tough, as like most people participating in the programme, I wanted to explore Nanjing whilst enjoying the academia.

I have to admit for this reason, I did not sleep until after 12am for most days. However, another contributing factor was that I would be communicating with my family back in London; which is 7-hours behind Chinese time - crazy!

In this post, I am not trying to scare you with the intensity of the course. Yet, I am just trying to state that, if you are thinking of participating in the Study China Programme, you will need to use your time wisely in order to balance your leisure and studying. As it is not only a holiday!
