What do you know about Chinese students?
And what do they know about Americans?
You probably find many Chinese students, let’s be honest, 
quite awkward, because some of them do not have great command of English. When they fail to convey their messages through words they might gesture too much or shy away from you. In the end they only hang out in clusters with their own people. Or, once in a while you see news of Chinese students driving recklessly in shiny, luxury cars. 
You may find all of these a bit incomprehensible, but a lot of you never had a chance to really talk to any international student in depth about what they study, why they are here, and what their plans are, even though you share the same campus. 

It doesn’t have to be this way. We want to tell you what Chinese students really think and have you guys talk to each other.

What exactly is Channel C?
We named it Channel C, and our goal is to demystify Chinese students, promote bilateral understanding, and provide an honest, diverse, and vernacular perspective on China and Chinese international students, so that Chinese students and domestic students are able to carry out in-depth conversations in and out of the classroom.

We made episodes on a variety of topics, such as “ Why Chinese Students Don’t Speak English?”, “Our Freshman Year”, “Job Hunting in US”, “Chinese Beauties”, “Dating Culture”, etc. These episodes mostly revolved around our lives (as foreigners) in the U.S.. We also invited domestic students to share their opinions on the same issue to explain why we think differently. Surprisingly, many times we ended up realizing that we are not that much different at all. To ensure information equality, our videos are made in English with bilingual subtitles.

Bridging culture is hard, but someone has to do it
Of course we want to continue the project, and we most definitely will! But we need YOUR help.

Lately our updates are not as frequent as before, but we have good news to share with you: we are on our way to establish our own startup to show our long-term commitment.

The BAD news is, besides technical issues (now that we have to collaborate with each other in four different time zones), personnel shortage, we spent most of our paychecks on website maintenance, business startup fees and upgrading some of our video production equipment… as a result, we are now officially in sub-critical financial crisis.

But we are determined to carry on. And here’s what we are asking from YOU. We appreciated all our viewers’ support. There is no way we could have made it thus far without your support, and now we are asking you just a little extra help: one dollar (or maybe a couple :D). With this money, we will be able to expand our online network, interview more people, make more fun little skits and improve both the technical quality and content quality for our videos.

Channel C team sincerely appreciates all your help. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
