From April 25th to May 28th, 19 students and 2 teachers from Washington and Lee University visited East China Normal University to learn Chinese and experience culture. Six of them led by Ms Bai were in Business Program, and other thirteen with Mr Fu were in Language and Culture Program.
Although the students stayed here for only a few weeks, they had a tight schedule and harvested fruitful results.
The Business Program visited GM, Estee Lauder, Baidu, Baosteel and many other well-known Chinese and foreign enterprises in Shanghai, Shenyang, Beijing, Nanjing and some other cities. Through the excursions, they had a breakthrough in language skills as well as intuitive understanding of Chinese society and economy..
The Language and Culture Program had benefited a lot from Chinese courses and bilingual lectures, thus keenly realized the traditional and contemporary Chinese culture.
The two programs, which were held every two years, achieved a big success with consecutive cooperation between Washington and Lee University and East China Normal University. In the future, the two sides will continue to further strengthen communication and exchange with each other.
