Unique and interesting multicultural experience

I have to admit that the International Summer School was much beyond my expectation! Every aspect of the Summer School including the warm reception, the interesting courses, the fantastic trips and the lovely classmates was just perfect. As a Chinese student, the Summer School offered me a wonderful opportunity to get a brief but clear knowledge about the western world which was totally fresh to me. The teaching method here involves lots of discussions in class and researches after class which was quite different from that of China, and at first I got exhausted from the heavy work both in and after class, but my classmates and the school staffs helped and encouraged me a lot which made me feel much more confident, and of course in the end all of our efforts spend on the courses turned out to be worthwhile because we not only learned useful knowledge but also enhanced our communication and collaboration skills. In addition, I think the best part of the Summer School is that I met so many good friends from all over the world! I still remembered the day when we drank in our hotel’s courtyard and everyone brought there a bottle of wine or beer which is traditional in their own country. It was really a very unique and interesting multicultural experience sharing our hometown’s own culture and stories with others! After two-week stay in Bremerhaven, I fall in love with the German beers and the enthusiastic atmosphere there! I have already missed my friends from the Summer School and I wish I could attend it again!
