American Students Make a Beeline to Study in China

"China is emerging as one of the most preferred destinations for American students seeking to study outside the home country," states an article in International Business Times early this morning. China saw a 4% increase in US students who studied there for credit in 2008-2009 while UK, Italy, Spain and France showed a decline in US students choosing to study in those countries respectively. Why do you think that is?

    Using a Chinese proverb: "Water flows down to the lowest level possible, whereas people walk up to the highest place possible."

    What's the context of the article? What do they mean by "study"? Is this for exchange programs? Is this for straight up admittance as undergraduate students? If it is for exchange programs, then I'm not surprised. China is a growing economy and is drawing a lot of attention, there is no harm in spending a couple semesters there to brush up on the Mandarin for later on. For undergraduate, a 4% increase isn't much, that isn't too much of a surprise. Fluctuations like that aren't much to pay attention to really.
