Wen Lei was new to America. He had to learn many new things. He was telling an American student how his life was everyday.
'I go to the English school everyday, but it is still difficult,' he says. 'After school, I go on to the part time job I have. Then I go back to my apartment.'
'Do you go out on Friday nights?' asked the young American.
'No, because I am going through problems in my homework. I like to get that done first. 'I go into the library to work because it is quiet and I can concentrate there. I usually go down into the basement of the library building.
They have lots of study booths there. I stay for several hours, but sometimes I go up to the cafeteria for a break. I have a coke then. That is what I do on Friday nights.'
Wen Lei is quite a serious student.
