I' ve been thinking about my time in Birmingham since I got back to China.

The experience has become the best one I' ve ever had!

I remember the time I spent with you and Ed and the Warwick family.

I' ve learnt a lot of things which I even never heard about in China from the learning program and I really appreciate it.The trip to Stratford-upon-Avon is another wonderful memory.

You and Ed were perfect guides and I did enjoy the tour.

The homestay was unforgetable as well. Sharon and her sons were such good hosts and that make us feel like we are just at home. I will always remember their warm-welcome and fantastic help.

All in all, the time in Birmingham was awesome.

We miss all of you and thank you again for all the help you' ve given us.

Wish you all the very best in the future!
