  10. 10. What did they learn? Meredith: “It was interesting hearing about the college experience from someone who lived it and not just a textbook. I didn’t know how difficult getting into college was, or that the government paid for various things, but that is dollars could count as a ‘scholarship’”. CJ: “It gave me practice with my listening comprehension from a native Chinese speaker, which I don’t get enough practice in. Also, it gave me some insight into the Chinese secondary education system.” Coleen: “We learned some famous Chinese singers’ name and about music education and how parents might feel about their children choosing music as a career.” Christopher: “I learned a lot about culture during the Open Policy. It was so interesting to hear about everyday life during this era, especially from the perspective of someone who actually lived in China. Yao laoshi (Professor Yao) is so fun to listen to, and she was so full of information.”
