Hello sir, I'm from Canada. I studied psychology and Chinese for my Bachelor's, during which time I won a scholarship. So I went to Beijing as an exchange student for a year. Whilst there I made a lots of friends. My Chinese also improved a lot and then, on my return to Canada, I finished my degree and applied to Beijing Normal University as a graduate student. Luckily I was able to return to Beijing and I graduated this year. I really hope to be able to stay here to work.

I see. Your Chinese is very good. Why do you want to remain in Beijing?

I'm really interested in people and Beijing is full of all sorts of people with very different ways of thinking and who speak a different language from me. For me, this is pretty much paradise! Secondly, while studying Chinese I became particularly interested in all kinds of historical sites and culture. Seeing these in person only heightened my interest. And finally, my fiance is from Beijing.
