Visiting Area Schools


The photo captures discussions with the Beijing Foreign
Studies University. The university has trained over 200 Ambassadors,
with the university offering over 60 languages. The university is known
world wide for its language training and for its successful graduates.

The delegation visited the Tongwen high school affiliated with
the Beijing Foreign Studies University.

The delegation visited the Changping No. 1 High School
and talked with students.  These students in the photo were interested
in learning more about Edgecombe Community College.
Both were most concerned about the air quality in Edgecombe County,
and they were also interested in whether Tarboro had opera for entertainment.

These special high school students were interested in studying in the United States.

High School students entertained the delegation at dinner.

The students, below, joined me at the table for dinner.  The students
had selected American names by which they introduced themselves.
They enjoyed listening to pop artists Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga.

Charlie Harrell is shown surrounded by students enjoying their
opportunity to speak English with him and with the other delegation members.
