The details of the visit

 

                Nanjing Normal University (NNU) is a leading university of Jiangsu province with 100 years of history.  It has 3 campuses and 23 colleges with 71 majors for bachelor degrees.  The International Culture and Education College in the university is one of the largest educational centers for international students in Chinese universities.  The students there come from all over the world.

 

                During the visit, the students will take the courses the program offers and have tours to the following cities: Beijing, Nanjing, Zhenjiang Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Wuxi, and Yangzhou.

 

Beijing is the capital and the political/culture center of China.  There are a lot of historical sites and museums like the Old Palace, the Summer Palace, the Great Wall, the Tian An Men Square.  There are also some top 10 universities in China there: Beijing University, Qinghua University, Beijing Normal University, Chinese People’s University, Beijing Language Institute, etc.

Nanjing, once the capital for 6 dynasties in Chinese history, is the capital of Jiangsu Province now.  The historical museum of Dr. Sun Yixian, the first president of China, depicts the history of how China ended the thousands of years of imperial dynasties.  The historical museum of Gong Yuan (‘the Contribution Yard’) shows how scholars took the government exams to be selected as officers in ancient times.

Zhengjiang is a city with sites on which many famous Chinese fairy tales are based. Students can also tour the longest river in China, the Yangzi River (it is known as “the Long River” in China.).

 Suzhou is famous for the private gardens and residences of influential officials and scholars from 500 years ago.  Students can learn the architecture arts and living philosophies in China. 

Hangzhou is one of the most popular tourist destinations in China.  A lot of Chinese literary works and classical poems are related to or describe the beautiful lake, Xi Hu (‘the Western Lake’), there.  It is also famous for its Buddhist and Taoist temples, and students can learn the history of Chinese religions.

Yangzhou is another historical city with many Chinese fairy tales and beautiful sites.  The longest canal (‘the Big Canal’), which was made about a thousand years ago, passes by the city.

Shanghai is the largest financial and industrial center in China today.  From this city, students can view and witness the latest economic developments since China’s recent reforms
