On July 19th, the last day of Summer School in Weihai, foreign delegates and Chinese volunteers enriched their day in Language Study 3 and Calligraphy class. In the evening, the host held a Closing Ceremony and Farewell Party for foreign students and their partners.

At 8:30 a.m., foreign delegates attended the third language studying class at the University Student Activity Center. They first learned about Chinese etiquette, basic rules, which is respecting your elders, when it comes to  eating, taking a seat, walking, speaking, and so on. The teacher also introduced something about shaking hands and bowing in the Chinese manner. Then, the instructor introduced a poem to delegates, Min Nong, which the main idea was sympathy for the peasants. The poem also demonstrates no pains no gains. For better use of Chinese language, the teacher let the delegates pronounce the poem repetitively. Moreover, Chinese ancient buildings, Chinese grammar and Chinese dialogues were also taught by the teacher. Although learning the Chinese language for the foreign students can be difficult, it was quite interesting. Additionally, they thought they will continue studying Chinese in their own countries.

After the language study, the Chinese volunteers led their foreign friends to the University Library to learn calligraphy. The teacher, Mr. Gong Yunde, member of the Shandong Calligraphy Association, showed the students how to write “海纳百川”, which means all rivers run into the sea, in different kinds of forms such as running script, regular script, and official script. The students had great fun practicing calligraphy.


The Closing Ceremony and Farewell Party were held that evening. In the beginning Professor Zhong Shisheng, Vice President of HIT, Weihai, addressed the closure of the summer school. Then the party started and the students showed their enthusiasm while performing in front of all members from the summer school. The party ended with a video which recorded the memorable moments during the exchange program.
