Transferring Colleges, Studying Chinese

During a recent trip to Guangzhou, Guangdong, China, I met a young man from Massachusetts who spoke beautiful Mandarin Chinese. I had lunch with him, and asked him about his educational trajectory.  He mentioned several tantalizing tidbits, including the fact that he had transfered from Boston University to the University of Massachusetts, that his major was in philosophy, and that he had studied Chinese at Fudan University.  He now lives in Beijing, where he works for a prominent educational exchange company.

I asked him if he would share a bit of his educational history on camera, and he agreed.  Here’s a brief clip of our conversation.
