I am currently in New York on my three day respite from Middlebury Chinese School. Felt eerie re-entering the world of English. Even with my English blogging this summer, it’s amazing how much my mind actually functioned in Chinese at least for a good portion of the day. For that, I am grateful to Middlebury’s langauge pledge. At the same time, I think the verdict is still out about the language pledge in general. An update closer to the end of the summer will follow.
Back to Middlebury tomorrow to begin round two of Chinese school.
