075 School

Lots of middle students in Asia stay in school from 7:30 in the morning until 9:30 in the evening, and that’s on a daily basis! In this episode, Josh from Transition and ShaoLan talks about what life is like for students at each stage of their school life in Asia. The culture and academic expectations definitely differ from culture to culture!

學校 / 学校 (xué xiào) means “school”

Bonus phrases include elementary school, middle school, high school and university/college. Interestingly, in Chinese, the advancement of each academic stage is literally expressed by “size”!
