MANY students around the world want to learn more about China and its culture and many summer exchange programs provide lasting insights and inspirations.

In Shanghai numerous summer camps, summer schools and activities are held to enhance friendship and mutual understanding between Chinese students and foreign pupils.

Among the many visiting nationalities, 330 Russian students aged between 12 and 16 years took part in a weeklong summer camp in Shanghai as guests of President Hu Jintao.

Before visiting Shanghai, the students spent three days in Beijing and had exchanges with Chinese students there.

In Shanghai they visited the China Pavilion at the World Expo 2010 site and took part in traditional Chinese cultural activities, such as dragon boat races.

Viktoriya Vinoselova, a senior working as an interpreter for the group, has been studying Chinese for years and always dreamed of visiting. She said the visit enriched her understanding of China.

Ivan Vergun, age 14, said he was very interested in Chinese kung fu and history.
