Announcing the New Chinese Blog

Lotus has just launched a Chinese-language blog to accompany its newly revamped Chinese website. It’s called 美国Lotus教育基金会中文博客, which simply means Lotus Educational Foundation Chinese Blog. Maybe we should start a competition here on the English blog to come up with a more creative name for the Chinese blog.

In case you’re wondering, our Chinese website is targeted at students and host families here in China. It provides information on hosting foreign students in China, as well as information on Lotus newly launched program, for Chinese students to study English in the United States over the summer.

If you think your Mandarin is up to the challenge, we invite you to join the discussion on our other blog (but don’t abandon us here at the English blog!) and see what staff and others at Lotus in Beijing are up to these days.


Welcome to From Afar!
Lotus Educational Foundation

From Afar is Lotus Education’s new blog. We hope it will provide a space for our community to come together to discuss and learn about China’s distinct language and traditional culture, as well as share stories, questions, and experiences about living in China.

As the community continues to grow, please be sure to come back regularly for information about our current homestay, high school, and college programs. We also encourage alumni to participate in conversations and share some of the valuable lessons they learned while abroad. Be sure to register for more involvement and to receive updates about comments and articles.

Thank you for supporting our community, and hopefully we will see you around the site!

Very Truly Yours,

Lisa Sheng
Program Director
