Hi everyone! My name is Skylar Gering and I decided to take a gap year after graduating from high school. This year I will be living in China for nine months before attending Harvey Mudd College in 2018. While in China I will be studying Chinese at the Chinese Language Institute (CLI) in Guilin. I am very excited to live in China and learn more about Chinese language and culture. I created this blog to share my experiences while in China. I hope you enjoy!
