Baylor in China

"Beijing Welcomes You"--A beautiful song

I know you all enjoyed your learning journey in China. With the Olympics fast approaching, I want to share the "Welcome to Beijing" song with you. The music TV will remind you of your visits to these places, which were not too long ago. You can also download the lyrics, which were written in simplified characters, traditional characters, pinyin, and English. You can also download the MP3 version to you iPod. 希望你喜欢!
