At 8:30, July 16th, foreign delegates accompanied by Chinese volunteers, gathered at the University Student Activity Center, preparing for the second Chinese class. The teacher taught them Chinese greetings & basic phrases, proverbs and wisdom, rivers, pronunciation and dialogues. Foreign students were instructed by the teacher, then their Chinese partners worked with them to pronounce the words accurately. The foreign delegates were very enthusiastic about learning Chinese, and were willing to correct themselves by asking questions from their partners. In this vibrant one-and-a-half hour atmosphere, class passed quickly.

At the end of the Chinese class, they came to the indoor basketball court to practice Tai chi. Tai chi is a Chinese traditional martial art that aims for both self-defense training and health. In order to give an intuitive understanding of Tai chi, two Tai chi teachers instructed the foreign delegates by breaking down the procedure into several independent movements. When delegates mimicked the teachers’ movements, the teachers came forward to correct their movements & posture. After learning all the separate movements, delegates could string them together and practice Tai chi simply.

 

 

In the afternoon, the foreign students & HIT partners paid a visit to Huaxia Town, a famous scenic spot in Weihai. In this tourist attraction, students appreciated ancient Chinese culture and learned some Chinese Mythological stories.

  

“I have come to China many times, but I havent seen a show like this before and I liked it very much. The show is really fantastic and it shows the history of ancient China,” said Pancake, a student from the Nakhon Ratchasima Rajabhat University.

 

“It’s very vibrant. I can hardly imagine that I have had a chance to watch a splendid show like this. Although today is a rainy day, I still believe this is a wonderful night.” said Eric, a student from the Australian Maritime College.

Through a series of various activities, from Chinese language study, Tachi, to a tour in Huaxia Town; the International Summer School helped strengthen cultural ties not only between universities, but also between China and foreign countries.
