‘It’s the fourth time I’ve taken part in the Russian-Chinese summer school, and each time I learn something new, I develop my skills and meet new people. This year a lot of students from different parts of China came to the school, but all they share one thing - they study at the same university. I have spent a year at that university, and it brings back a lot of pleasant memories, therefore I was glad to talk to these students, some of whom I knew already, and I showed them our beautiful city. The students really liked staying here; I think they will miss local life and our delicious, healthy food. I hope to see them again!’
Zhanna Shabanova, 3rd-year student of the Faculty of Law, HSE Nizhny Novgorod
‘The Russian-Chinese school is a great opportunity to learn a lot of interesting and shared things about culture and education in Russia and China, to share our knowledge of Russian with Chinese students and make new friends. I was Assistant to the Teacher of Russian language and I'm very glad that after the classes organized with my help many students decided to continue studying Russian in China. I hope that next year I will also participate in this summer school and be able to go to China to study Chinese culture, history and law.’
