From Inner Mongolia to Wuhan

I enjoy both modern and classic works. For example, I like William Somerset Maugham and Marc Levy.”

“Wow, I’ve never read any of their works, I’ll have to look them up!”

What language(s) do you speak? How do you say "Hello" in your language?:

“In Mandarin, we say 你好 (ni hao) to say "Hello." Besides Mandarin, I can also speak some English, as I am an English language major at the Wuhan University of Technology. I can also understand a little Mongolian, but not much.”

Do you have pets?:

“No, I don’t have any pets, but I love dogs!”

Have you traveled? Where have you traveled to?:

Tanila places her pointer finger on her chin as she thinks. “In China, besides my home and Wuhan,  I’ve traveled to 重庆(Chonqqing), 广州(Guangzhou),南京(Nanjing) and 上海 (Shanghai). I’ve also traveled to Indonesia.” 

“Oh! I’m half-Indonesian and still have family in Indonesia! Where in Indonesia have you been!” 

“Oh, right, I forgot! I’ve been to Bali. It’s such a beautiful island, though there were so many people when I visited!”

What do you do for work?:

“Besides being a student, I’m also a tutor and teaching assistant.” 

“Is that hard to balance with your studies?”

“No, not really--especially since tutoring is only on the weekends.”

Is there anything else you would like to say to students in the United States?:

Tanila beams. “Oh, yes! I welcome you to come visit China! Also, once I finish my studies and graduate next year, I plan to go to the U.S.!”
