China is like a world all its own and is a wonder waiting to be experienced. It is home to the Great Wall of China (one of the seven wonders of the world), the Terracotta Army, the "Floating Mountains" of Zhangjiajie National Park, and so much more. It trails only behind the U.S. for its GDP (Gross Domestic Product) and is arguably one of the most influential geopolitical and economic giants of the 21st century. Mandarin Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world, even more so than English. As the fourth largest country in the world, China has a wide range of climates, varying topographies, and indigenous peoples. Its cultural roots go deep, with a long and rich history that dates back to roughly 1250 BC.
If you want to jump out of your comfort zone, impress potential employers, and submerge yourself in an extremely important culture that will undoubtedly shape the future, then China is without a doubt, your study abroad destination.
