Language Buddies is a fun program where Chinese 101 and 102 students are assigned a buddy. We talk weekly for two hours trying to improve both of our language skills, and both of us learn a lot.
As an international student you can’t always do clubs - they aren’t as friendly or welcoming sometimes. But this is a community I can get involved in. I have made many memories with the other members of this club, to the point that we have lots of inside jokes, we talk about anything in both English and Mandarin, and being able to communicate back and forth switching between the two really makes me happy.
