No it is not part of the curiculum. I talked with some chinese friends in france, and I decided to do it. So I prepared a project to explain to the school what I wanted to do, and why. China is a huge country, and it is now opening to the international market. More over, understanding china is essential to understanding asia. So I tlod them I wanted an international career, focused on asia, and how much china was important for this. I also plan to study business applied to the chinese market. Considering all this, my project has been easily accepted... And here I am florian
