Hello everyone, my name is Jordan. This year I am 24 years old and come from the United States.
This is my second time coming to China. My first time was in 2010. Even though at that time I was only here for three weeks, I knew that if I had another opportunity to come here I would definitely come back. After I graduated college I knew I had an opportunity to come to China for an internship. I was very happy because not only would I be able to come to China, but also have the opportunity to learn Chinese. Last October I came to Shanghai and began studying Chinese at Miracle Mandarin and then in February I began my internship. The more time I spend here in Shanghai the more I have become to like the life here. I recently have finished my internship and am now preparing to start working here.
I really like traveling. Here in China I have visited West Lake in Hangzhou, the old homes in Wuzhen, the beautiful scenery in Huangshan, the terracotta warriors in Xi’an, the bustling city of Hong Kong and ate the good food in Wuhan. These are just a few of China’s great cities and I look forward to visiting the rest of them.
At first I thought studying Chinese would be very complicated, but actually it is very interesting. If I didn’t study Chinese at Miracle Mandarin living here would probably be more difficult. Right now I really like studying Chinese and want to speak Chinese very well. Thank you.
这是我第二次来中国。2010年是我第一次来中国，虽然，那时候我只在这里呆了三个礼拜，但我知道如果再有这样的机会，我一定会再来中国的。大学毕业以后，当我知道我会在中国实习的时候，我真的很开心，因为我不但可以来中国，而且有机会学习中文。我是去年10月来的上海，并开始在Miracle Mandarin 学习中文，然后，二月份开始在上海实习。在上海的时间越久，我越喜欢这里的生活。我最近结束了我的实习，现在准备在上海工作。
我觉得学习中文很有意思，开始的时候我以为学习中文会很复杂，其实中文很有趣。如果不是在Miracle Mandarin 学习中文，可能我在这里的生活会很困难。我现在很喜欢说中文，而且也很希望我的中文会说得越来越流利。谢谢大家。
