Making International Connections: UK Students at Shanghai University

James Knoer, Meredith King & Geoffrey Banta are three students that took Chinese language courses at Shanghai University in May & June of 2012. Their professor, Liang Luo, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Modern & Classical Languages, Literatures & Cultures (MCL) at the University of Kentucky. For the last few years, MCL has offered a summer course in Chinese to interested students, some of whom have gone back for further studies for a year or more. This summer, not only did UK students get to take an intensive language course, but they also got to take part in a Student Summit with students from Shanghai University. 

In this podcast, they discuss their experiences in China and a few ways that people can get involved in international exchange - through study abroad programs and locally through the UK Office of International Affairs.
