Bangor student learns Chinese in China

High School junior wins scholarship to study language abroad

BANGOR - While most students will attend camp, work a part-time job or just spend a little time sleeping in this summer, one Bangor High student will be thousands of miles from home learning Chinese.

"Basically what you do is they send you to China for six weeks. It's not to fully learn the language, it's more to spark an interest or familiarity and then come back home and maybe study it or go back to China to study it for a year," explained Patrick Coyne.
