Trip to Shanghai University by Logan

Today we had the opportunity to visit Shanghai University and meet with some of the students. All of the students were English majors and could easily communicate with us. It was very enlightening to finally be able to engage in full communication with some of the people here without the help of a translator. I thoroughly enjoyed that each member of our group had the chance to be paired with a student and could learn a lot about each other's culture and see our differences and similarities. You can learn much about a different culture by simply picking up a book, but you gain much more insight by actually discussing it with someone who is a part of the culture. It was nice that we were able to ask one another questions that you would not find answers to in a library book. It is interesting to hear what people's impressions are about the American culture. I was happy that we were able to answer their questions and exchange personal information with one another. I hope that we will keep in touch and although long distance, keep a lasting friendship with these students.
