A week off school in the middle of the semester? Music to a study abroad student’s ear! Golden Week in China is a national holiday where most are off work and all students are out of class to celebrate the founding of the current government, The People’s Republic of China. Every year, the first week of October is filled with travel, festivals, and visiting family.
If you’re anything like me, chances are you’re spending your last days stateside doing what I call the Great American Binge. Going to all your favorite restaurants, having your family make all your favorite meals, and trying to hang out with all your friends before its time to board your flight abroad. Also, you’re probably thinking about how will you conquer the language barrier, how will you get around and make new friends.
