  • Llorente, Would you recommend this school?

  • No, why not?

  • Dude?

  • What did you say?

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • Okay.

  • My little light After being almost 10 months in China, I finally got some time to show you guys how my normal school that looks like as an exchange student in a Chinese school.

  • If you remember my video for my exchange school in Japan, you remember that?

  • I had to wear a uniform to school every day.

  • Well the same goes for china, but I feel like the japanese uniforms look at least a bit more classy, a bit more nice.

  • The chinese uniforms usually have a pale color.

  • You know, these are the pants that we have to wear.

  • Uh yeah, there's like literally nothing, nothing interesting to show.

  • Uh this is the symbol of our school.

  • It's called Beijing trip to Bhutan and uh yeah, but we've got two types of uniforms.

  • This one that we were in spring or in summer or this one that we were in autumn or winter.

  • Um, so yeah, again, these are the pants, but now it's not autumn or winter, it's the hot summer.

  • So of course I'm gonna wear this one and before I show you guys, how do I get to my school every day.

  • I realized that I never actually showed you, how do I access the internet outside of china from here?

  • Because china is one of those countries that blocks a lot of sites and apps from the western world for example, facebook twitter instagram, youtube, google Snapchat, everything that you use like you cannot use that in china.

  • So that's why I use this.

  • So you have got my phone, no password obviously as you can see my wife is all right.

  • So let's let me, let me go to Youtube for example, let me go to youtube.

  • The wifi is on so it should work fine, right?

  • It should work just fine.

  • This is exactly what happens every time when you don't have a VPN.

  • Oh it just keeps loading and it's on instagram and twitter, it's everywhere.

  • So then what I have to do is go to one of these apps and uh turn on my VPN which also takes so much time.

  • Uh this is called turbo VPN, it's a free VPN for everyone.

  • Okay, it connected now it's gonna give me an ad.

  • Alright, and now finally when I open up youtube finally I can see my subscriptions.

  • Finally I can see the home page.

  • All right, and the same exact thing of course with my computer right now I'm on google chrome, I've opened my channel page, you know everything works because I have my VPN on this is the VPN that I use in my computer but you have to pay for it.

  • This is not free.

  • Now let me let me turn this out.

  • Alright, it's obviously not connected now.

  • Let me refresh that channel page.

  • Yeah, this side cannot be reached.

  • So yeah, this is what I have to do every day and both my computer and my phone, I just want to say this video is not sponsored by any VPN uh, is just what I literally have to do to access youtube instagram, twitter and all the social media in china.

  • So every day on this bus station I wait for the bus number 107 or 128 81, 966.

  • Just any bus that will take me to the nearest subway station right there.

  • Here comes the bus number 81.

  • The thing in china is that you never know when the busses will come because it's not written anywhere.

  • So you just have to kind of way Yeah, okay down to the Children.

  • Okay, so I arrived to school and I guess first I'm going to show you guys around today.

  • So this is the school campus, there are people studying in that building so I'm going to go this way.

  • I think the school looks very nice.

  • I think compared to other chinese schools, there are definitely schools that look way worse than this one.

  • So I think it's pretty nice.

  • Also there's like a bamboo forest, like a small forest which is cool.

  • Ah Swag.

  • Actually I forgot to tell you guys that every day after the second period if it's not too hot or if the smog situation isn't too bad.

  • We go to the playground.

  • Everybody in this school, every student goes to the playground and we do something called santa which means do exercises while listening to music or do some tai chi exercises?

  • Uh so yeah, I'm gonna, I'm gonna show that to you right now it looks really empty here, that's just because I'm filming this while the students are studying because otherwise it would be too loud here, but I wanted to address something.

  • A lot of people were asking if I do have to do their homework, if I do have to pay attention in every single class and like not only chinese or english, but like physics, Biology, Geography, history, the short answer is no because I'm just an exchange student, so it doesn't really matter what my grades are here or how well do I do on tests.

  • But yeah, I can try to comprehend what the teachers are saying, I can try to keep pace with the class but I obviously wouldn't be able to because I'm not fluent in chinese, I'm just learning chinese.

  • Uh so me being here has basically two, two main reasons uh for me to learn chinese and for them to learn better english, I'm going to go to class now and uh see you then, so this is the class where I spent most of my time when, when I came to this school, this is the international department when I, when I spent the first semester and you guys asked me over on instagram questions about my chinese school and now I'm going to answer them Swag, okay, so first question is, can you keep your hair as long as you want?

  • Yes, I can because I'm just an exchange student.

  • But all the Chinese boys have to have hair in the same way as it was in Japan.

  • If you guys remember have to show their ears basically.

  • So that's the rule.

  • But it doesn't matter for me because I'm here just for 10 months.

  • Can you go to the rooftop?

  • Well I can't go to the roof in the sense of I'm able to come here because the door is never locked but am I allowed to be here?

  • I have no idea but enjoy the view.

  • Yeah.

  • Uh huh.

  • Yeah.

  • What time does the school start?

  • And what time does it end?

  • The school starts at 7 30.

  • It ends usually around four PM or five PM depending on if the, if the students have some extra classes or if it's friday on friday, we usually have less classes.

  • We like, we ended like three PM became very, but The average is four p.m. Every class lasts for 40 minutes Rafi, can you read the toilets?

  • 1-10.

  • Yeah, well the toilets, you know, it's like it's a hole in the ground.

  • I can't really show much because I don't want to discuss you, but you know, it's a hole in the ground.

  • Are chinese students friendly?

  • Yes, they're super friendly, at least in my class.

  • Everyone.

  • It's very friendly.

  • Well let's just say chinese students friendly.

  • Yes, they're very friendly.

  • Everybody talks with each other.

  • I didn't see any cases of bullying basically the chinese students are very friendly.

  • And here are some interviews that I did with my chinese classmates, with my chinese friends about various topics.

  • Uh Or should I uh should make sure your house, you don't tire you actually.

  • You're sure?

  • How sure are you sure?

  • Uh huh.

  • Uh huh.
