16 students from Yiling American High School traveled to the West Coast of United States during their winter break. They first spent two weeks at their sister-school Sammamish High School in Seattle by attending classes and staying at home-stay families with their shadow student partners, during which they paid visits to Microsoft Headquarter, Seattle University, University of Washington and Boeing Aviation Center.
After bid adieu to Seattle, they flew to Los Angeles, the second largest city in the U.S., where they wasted no time in enjoying the Disney land, universal studio and a few local universities.
This is the first time for a few students at YLAP to visit the U.S.A., where they are going to spend four of their most precious years after graduating from high school. Some say this trip has broadened their horizon and encouraged them to work harder when perusing their American dreams.
