Predeparture day 2

Another predeparture day has come and gone.  Today we learned more to make our trip a success such as washing our shirt, bartering and using the train system.  Also the Mayor Rod Fyffe came to see us and wish us a great learning journey. See above on the phrases link for pronunciations for certain bartering phrases with Shengjie.

Preparing to Travel

Today we attended our second preparation day for our journey to China next week. We participated in three activities giving us more information for our overseas learning experience.
The first was a travel session where we talked about catching trains and using travel cards etc. The next activity was all about our baggage and hotel laundry. Packing our bags is very important so we can fit everything in and have room to bring home gifts. The last activity was with Juncai and we learned all about the money and bartering at the markets.

A highlight of the day was having our photo taken with the Past Mayor Rod Fyffe.
