    • (1) Why the number of Chinese students at U.S. colleges and universities increased?

      I think Chinese people want to get high education in US. Of course there are other places that have a good education, but US has some of the highest university in the world. So, people prefer US to other countries. Also, in China, the economy is going to be important for the government. So, I think people are aware of job hunting.

      (2) Do you think that people will study Chinese in the future?

      I’m sure people will study Chinese in the future, because Chinese is the second language that are spoken in the world. But Chinese government is getting bigger and bigger these days. So people will think Chinese is a important language for business. Even nowadays, people started studying Chinese in universities or colleges.

    • What’s the most important condition for you when you do study abroad?

      The most important condition for me when I study abroad is safety. I live in Kyoto, in Japan. Kyoto is a safe city, so I used to it. But in other countries, I can’t live the same life as Kyoto, because there are some dangerous things. For example, I can’t walk outside alone at night, or I have to be aware of my stuffs when I am outside. It’s very different from my home town. So I want the place to be safe as much as possible. I chose a safe place.

    • What’s the most important condition for you when you do study abroad?

      I think the most important condition is safety. I chose Hawaii because my parents heard about Hawaii is a safety country. Before I think about go to California or Hawaii. But my parents think safety is the most important thing when I study abroad so that why we chose Hawaii.
