For the past week and a half, Rosary Academy’s campus has been blessed with 10 new visitors from China. Bringing their culture, stories, and curiosity, our ambassadors have had a blast hosting these students.  

For some of them, this is their first time visiting the United States. They have been able to experience school in America (which differs immensely from their 10 hour school days back home), and also see the amazing landmarks in California. Many visited Disneyland, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and even South Coast Plaza. 

We caught up with Betty for a quick interview: 

Royal Reporter: How are you liking America? 

Betty: I like American culture. The classes are very relaxed unlike China’s classes where the teachers are strict with us, we can’t use our phones, and we have a lot of homework. Our classes start at 7 o’clock in the morning and we end at 10 o’clock at night. We also can’t eat in class sadly. 

RR: Do you like American schooling better? 

Betty: Yeah, it is very funny 

RR: What places have you visited here in California? 

Betty: I have been to Hollywood, Universal Studios, some shopping malls, the beach, UCLA  

RR:  What place was your favorite or the most memorable? 

Betty: The beach and Universal Studios because it was raining the day we went to the beach, but we still had a good time. A rainy beach is very different from a sunny beach. I thought that was very interesting. I thought Universal Studios was really cool too. There are a lot of movies I like that where there and a lot of 3D movies. I really liked the Harry Potter part; the scenery was beautiful.

RR: Final question: Are you excited to go home and are you going to miss America? 

Betty: Oh, I want to stay here, however, I do prefer Chinese food.  

Sadly, even though having these new students here with us has been so much fun, they will be departing back to China on February 9th. We want to thank them for their stories and their laughter. We wish them a safe journey. 再见 (zài jiàn) (see you again!)
