Visiting from Beijing: Presentations and Cultural Activities for Chinese Students


From July 9 to July 17, F+U Academy of Languages welcomed another group of Chinese students. The 29 students aged 14 to 16 of Beijing Haidian Foreign Language ShiYan School have been learning German for two years in school and came to F+U Academy of Languages to improve their language skills and get to know the German culture.

Therefore, instead of “classical” German classes, presentations were held on various topics relating to German history and society: Heidelberg’s history, the German car industry, German cuisine or soccer teams. The presentations helped to improve the students’ German knowledge, as one student observed: “That way we don’t just get to know German culture, we also learn many new words.”

Our Chinese guests were also alive to cultural differences between Germans and Chinese, especially when it came to food: “The German food is so different from the Chinese food. I recognized that immediately!” Another cultural difference the students spotted related to people’s behavior: “Germans are much more open compared to Chinese people.”

Next to the studying, many leisure activities were on the afternoon programme, for example frosting cakes, a visit to Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart, a barbecue or a guided tour through Heidelberg. The students especially liked Heidelberg Castle and the university.

Our Chinese guests are going to stay with a host family for the weekend to get a first-hand experience of the daily life in Germany until they leave Heidelberg after a closing ceremony on Monday. We hope they enjoyed their stay with us and are looking forward to welcome them again in Heidelberg sometime soon.

The group from Beijing Haidian Foreign Language ShiYan School was the second group of students from China we were happy to welcome this July. Read our report about the visit of students of Haimen Experimental Primary School here.
