Author Biography

McAloon has been traveling to China since 1997 when he studied at Beijing Normal University through the College of William & Mary. Following an internship in Yantai arranged by the Ohio State University and two years as a department manager in an e-commerce company in Beijing and Shenzhen, McAloon returned to the US to complete graduate degrees in Chinese language pedagogy at Ohio State. He has led many American students to China and continually receives Chinese visitors to the US, fueling his interest in cross-border exchange.

Review

"China is changing faster than any other nation on earth today. Written by a Chinese language teacher and a travel professional who works with students in China all the time, Studying in China is an invaluable resource..." --Chinese Language Teachers Association (CLTA) Newsletter "[A]n essential primer for anyone considering going to China for study...serves as a good introduction to Chinese culture for non-Chinese thinking of spending some time there--either working, studying or living. [T]he book is a manual to read before you leave and to have on hand for reference once you arrive." --About.com China Travel "This book is a must-read for anyone who plans to study abroad in China. It is detailed, extensive, and packed with extremely useful and up-to-date information provided by someone who has first-hand knowledge and who has done substantial research in the subject. McAloon knows China well. Most importantly, he knows what China-bound individuals need to know in order to make the most out of their study in China experience. I will definitely recommend this book to my students." --Yanfang Tang, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Chinese Studies, and the Director of the Chinese Studies Program at the College of William & Mary "For both the amateur and the expert traveler to Asia, McAloon's book is an indispensable, accessible, and in-depth guide to modern-day China." --William I. Brustein, Ph.D., Vice Provost for Global Strategies and International Affairs, Professor of Sociology, Political Science and History, The Ohio State University "I can't think of a more astute or engaging guide to China than Patrick McAloon. He gives you the good, the bad, and the ugly of being a foreign student in China, without the tendency to romanticize or demonize that many guidebooks are prone to. This is accurate, sensible information by an extremely accomplished and prescient author. Make sure this book is in your duffle bag or back pocket when you board your flight!" --Chris Livaccari, Upper Elementary Principal and Chinese Language Program Director, International School of the Peninsula Senior Advisor, Asia Society "Studying in China is the most complete advice you can get before investing time and fortune on study abroad. Here you can find what you need to know before embarking on a China study program, while engaging with the program, and then understanding better what happened after you return from the program. It may include information you do not want to know...but you really need to know it." --Galal Walker, Ph.D., Professor of Chinese in the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures, and the Director of the National East Asian Languages Resource Center, the Midwest US-China Flagship Program, and the Critical Language Scholarship Program, The Ohio State University
