It's great to be able to make friends with students from all over the world who are strangers so far. In addition, because it was my first time abroad, I was uneasy about getting used to China at first, but I was exposed to different cultures in the local area, and my impression of different cultures changed, which became a good experience.
People from different countries with different cultures get together to learn and become interested in each other's cultures. I feel a very positive effect on this point, so I think it must be good if international relations can be cooperated in the same way. To be honest, it is not easy to understand the culture of all the countries, but it is not impossible to try to understand each other little by little. Therefore, I think it would be very good to do such activities for a better and better world.
两个星期一眨眼就过了，Jerry 在机场接我们还像是昨天的事，虽然他要对接两个营员，但这两个星期里一直都在尽力为我们负责。尽管有时会抱怨，但他人好。我觉得我们平时 "Jerry Jerry" 地叫他已经一步一步地促进我们的感情了。Jerry 办事也非常认真。从城市设计和建筑竹筏都能看出。

One of my fondest memories with my Chinese buddy, Ruoxi (Lucy) was eating hotpot with her on the home visit day. They say that food brings people together, and I truly felt the warmth of the Chinese hospitality as we chatted and laughed over dinner. I learnt many new things about her and her culture, while sharing my own.

This trip made me realize how the power of friendship overcomes cultural barriers. Even though there were some challenges in language between my buddy Iris and I, just over a couple of days, we managed to become great friends, as if we had known each other for a long time. I really cherish this trip as it enabled me to meet people all across the world, from South Africa to Shanghai, that wouldn’t have been possible back in Singapore.

We think our volunteers are good, kind and friendly. The first day when I had the fever they took care of me and everything. Like an 24 hours service. If we want anything they always find it for us and when we wanna buy stuff, they just sit here and wait. We have been really close. And the distance between teacher and student here is really close also. It's really different from our country.
