◆5◆The First Global Cafe was Held


The first “Global Cafe” was held on July 17th at the first floor lounge of the Central Library. It was organized by YNU Student International Volunteers to provide Japanese and international students of YNU with an opportunity for cross cultural experience and deepening the understanding on cultures and histories of different countries. The first Global Cafe focused on China and invited a Chinese student of the Graduate School of International Social Sciences Zhang Xiaoming as a presenter. He started off with the greetings in Chinese and introduced Chinese geography, history, and culture. In between, he taught the participants how to do “the exercises for the eyes and the body” which are recognized to be effective for eyes and nearsightedness and introduced by most Chinese primary schools in their daily timetable. Everyone enjoyed learning what they do not normally learn in the classes.
