Talking with the local people
USHIE Benjamin Bendiwhobel (Wen Xing)(International student) said：“The park visit was truly extraordinary.......What struck me was the mutual effort we put in to communicate—while we grappled with speaking Chinese to enhance our language skills, they grappled with English to improve their own proficiency. ” Muhammad Adeel Ejaz (International student )said，“We saw the passion and zest that Chinese people have when it comes to cherishing their lives and enjoying the best of themselves....... I see people of all ages’ children, adults, and the elderly. School students, couples, Families, and singles all gathered at a place to appreciate nature.I have mad respect for the people of China; I still have a long way to learn more and hopefully cross my culture and way of living with them as well.”
By this event, International students can deeply understand the travelling culture of China, enrich living experience and improve communication skills.
