Wang Hehe, a 27-year-old taking a gap year, says her night school in Wuhan is a place to make new friends.

"As I'm neither working nor studying, I spend most of my time alone. Here, I feel connected, and chatting with people with similar hobbies is a lot of fun," she says.

Wang Zhongwu, a sociology professor at Shandong University, says education in China used to focus on children and the elderly, leaving young working adults with few options for continuing learning.
