Beginning education for CSC assignment in China

I have been placed in the China team for IBM's CSC (Corporate Service Corps) program. There are ten members in the team from different countries. We are supposed to be travelling to Chengdu in the Sichuan province during October-November. The program has a three month preparation period during which we need to learn about various things. For example, during the first month, we are supposed to learn about the team and also start learning about the Chinese culture, economy and business.

Till date we have had two meetings (these days early all meetings are "virtual", telephonic ones) in which we have had a chance to interact with our team members. We have also been assigned a team mentor (someone who had been to Chengdu as part of a previous CSC group).
