"I missed a lot of opportunities to get to know Chinese culture outside after the outbreak of COVID-19 epidemic. The event is quite great. I hope this kind of event can be held more often," said Abbas Malik, an international student from Pakistan.
In the future, the International College of NPU will continue to build mutual learning platforms for Chinese and international students, and help international students to learn more about Chinese traditional culture.
