Three Topics of Interest
The first thing I am excited to learn about is how bargaining works while shopping. I have several friends that have been to China and one that even lived there for a year and it sounds like shopping can be quite the experience. I want to give my bargaining (and Chinese) skills a test and it sounds like shopping may be the place to do it. The second thing I am interested in learning while in China is what their transportation systems look like, and run like, compared to ours. One of my undergraduate degrees is in Transportation & Logistics, so I will be interested in learning/seeing where the major differences lie and how they affect their transportation systems. I am very excited to ride the high-speed trains!! Lastly, but I think most importantly, I want to learn Chinese business customs and manners. The USA does a lot of business with China and I want to learn customs and manners so that I will be able to take them back to the workplace and integrate them to help me become a better businesswoman. One final note, I am very excited for the food as well!!
