Foreign Students To Take Mandatory “Study Tour” Outside Beijing On June 3-4

Mandatory enrichment trip June 3-4

This notice has been going around Twitter and Facebook all day, so it’s likely you’ve seen it, but we want to hear from the students in Beijing — what happens if you say no to this “study tour” that “all foreign students have to attend”? Drop us a line.

But even better… if you do take up this offer — Inner Mongolia is lovely! — let us know how it goes.

      Hilarious.

      >> Inner Mongolia is lovely

      It is ? My impression is that it is mostly flat, windy grassland occasionally interrupted by open mines and dump trucks moving stuff around.

      >> what happens if you say no

      A field trip to North Korea, maybe ?
