Japanese Aichi Shukutuko University sent 16 students to our school in order to take part in this program for three weeks. During school hours, Japanese youngsters have improved their Chinese , joined in the activity which aimed to memorize history. They have created a new feeling towards the old Chinese saying: ‘taking history as a mirror’. After contacting with youths from International College for Chinese Studies and College for Foreign Languages of NNU, Japanese students have made friends with them and thus having the opportunity to learn more about China. Through a wide variety of colorful activities, Japanese youngsters have got in touch with profound Chinese culture and deeply impressed by NNU, Nanjing and even China.
