to the vocabulary because their English is in the lower level. When you study a new language, it’s very hard. I have an American friend who wants to study business management. She took only two classes, but she droped this class immediately. She says that the business class was cold because no one wants to answer the teacher’s question, and most of the students come from China. Chinese's students maybe know how to answer the questions, but they couldn’t explain well, because their English is lower. If Chinese students want to be successful in the American college, they should learn English and speaking a lot.
There are three differences between Chinese and American education, which are different ways to study different ways to learn and using difference language. If Chinese student want to be successful at an American College, they need to study hard.

The growth of China’s emerging middle class has brought a sweeping economic change. Even though the GDP growth was ‘only’ 6.9% China’s consumption of tree nuts is growing as living standards rise. In 2015, the Chinese inflation dropped to 0.8%, the lowest level for more than five years. Because the inflation growth is much less than the GDP growth the consumers purchasing power will grow substantially. However China’s food prices rose 1.8 percent in January in connection with Lunar New Year holiday. "Inflation will likely retreat starting in March.

important to China's economy. Another is that CCB already has a big market share in the industry: 12.63% of credit card issued. Considering that work-site marketing is critical in issuing credit cards, this will play as a big advantage. Also it has the least non-performing loans, and because it is state-owned, CCB seems to be a very safe and rational choice.
The Chinese credit card industry is described to be in the process of a very promising growth stage and provide the possibility for a successful expansion through first-mover advantage.

Basic Reason behind sudden increase in trade(History)
China has become the manufacturing hub of the world. Substantial part of the economy of China depends on international trade. The advantages it gives for other countries to setup manufacturing plants in China is its strong government support for FDIs, Infrastructure development, cheap labor, weak environment and labor laws, new strong market reach which includes China, India, Japan, Russia, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia etc, access to cheap Chinese supplier base, thus larger sales and profits, seasonality of product supply and demand can be managed.

American culture is quickly embracing it's Chinese members through things like a Chinese New Years celebration every year, and many cities are introducing Chinatowns into their downtown core. With differences, there must also be similarities. Both cultures value individuality, the way people are treated and, sadly, riches. Just because you are Chinese, or anyone else for that matter, it does not mean that you cannot strive for the best of both worlds? What is stopping you from taking the best out of each side and combining it into some supernova? There may be many differences between the two cultures, but if people let differences stop them from achieving their goals then nothing would be the same now.

trouble before it happens. I was ever told an old Chinese tale, which said, over a thousand years ago, in Han Dynasty, a rich man built a new house. However, the cooking range was not designed properly. The stove was too close to the firewood, and the chimney was straight. In this way, it was easy for sparks from chimney to light the firewood. An experienced friend warned him of this danger, and suggested him doing some betterment. That was to bend the chimney in proper angle and move the firewood far from the stove. The rich man did not regard this suggestion as right. Soon later, his house caused fire due to the chimney. Thanks to neighbors’ great help, his house was not destroyed entirely. He

China were choices based on power, not the principles Sun espoused. Those with vision for a new China were focused on consolidating control, not on giving the people freedom, and the means by which to accomplish this control, as often has been the case in history (and even now in spots around globe), was through oppression and tyranny. The Chinese people, unfortunately, were pawns in this conflict, which later became a series of civil wars beginning as early as 1913, and which later became the death of freedom for all concerned. Truthfully, all sides were brutal, though not nearly to the same extent, and all committed atrocities against the Chinese people in the name of "a new China

thirty years. From 1978 to 2011 real GDP growth averaged about10 percent per year, resulting in a more than 20-fold increase in the level of output. Can this continue? Eichengreen et. al. (2011) argues that the evidence from other countries suggests it cannot, and in fact the economy has already slowed in the past couple of years. Although some of the recent slowing may be cyclical, there also has likely been some cooling in the rapid pace of trend growth. This is not surprising-a continuation of growth rates near 10 percent as the Chinese economy becomes more developed would be unprecedented. The real question is by how much and over what period is Chinese economic growth likely to slow

As we are targeting young generation, it’s important to take part in the worldwide web in this modern society as a website is a convenient way of getting information and getting widely exposed to a large group of customers no matter where they are. We are planning to make a special Chipotle website from which people can learn where and how Chipotle’s products are created, take quizzes and surveys, play games, and watch videos about the company. And members will receive reward like earn free foods and T-shirts through lot drawing.
