Mark Hossler, Director of Institutional Technology at Landmark Christian School, and senior Landmark student Lauren Krotz, were invited by New Oasis International Education to travel to China for two weeks as a part of an exploratory program for the agency. Lauren is an Honors Mandarin IV student and has the fluency to engage in Chinese conversation. Her knowledge was invaluable to the trip.
 
While in China, Hossler and Krotz presented Landmark to prospective Chinese parents and students at five student fairs. They helped prospective international students better understand student life at Landmark Christian School and gave them a better sense of the American education.
 
“This was a wonderful experience and opportunity for me. I loved sharing about the life of an American high school student with the prospective Chinese students and their families. Talking firsthand with the students allowed me to learn even more about the culture I've been studying for the past four years. It was also very rewarding to see how appreciative the Chinese people were of my Mandarin language skills,” Krotz said.
 
In their free time, Hossler and Krotz visited Chinese classrooms and saw a glimpse of life as a student in China, learning about Chinese culture and education. They also visited landmarks including the Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Bund and the Terracotta Warriors.
 
Over 12 days they visited seven areas, including Beijing, Jinan, Xi'an, Lanzhou, Chengdu, Fuzhou, and Shanghai.
 
Mr. Hossler adds, “This trip provided valuable eye-opening experiences not only regarding the Chinese culture but with the educational system, too. We look forward to continuing to welcome Chinese students into our international program at Landmark.”
