“The work experience I am gaining here at The World of Chinese is wonderfully extensive and interesting. The office dynamic is casual, easy-going, and incredibly friendly. Andy and the team are fantastic. With such a small and new publication, even an intern plays a large role in the writing process and in meetings. I often get to provide “the foreigner perspective,” as the magazine is geared at expats in China and students interested in the culture of the country. The focus of the magazine is also great because I learn a lot of China-related tips and snippets of history that I wouldn’t get from any other magazine.”
