International students from Shanghai University (SHU) staged an excellent singing and dancing performance in the school library's lecture hall on Dec 16.

According to their proficiency in Chinese, students were divided into two groups and required to perform all the shows in Chinese! From the reciting of ancient Chinese poems to remixes of modern hit songs, the audiences were delighted through a combination of dynamics and passion.

A variety of witty skits roused bursts of laughter here and there, such as a creative fairy tale integrating Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White, and a follow-up story of Journey to the West where Master Xuanzang and his three apprentices, the Monkey King, Pig and Monk Sha travelled back to the east to take the HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi), the official test for Chinese Proficiency.

University official Xin Mingjun spoke highly of the shows, as well as the students' fanciful ideas, fluency in Chinese and team spirit. "I really enjoyed the shows," Xin said.

Following the performances, the much-anticipated "Outstanding International Students of the Year" were awarded, including Yousef from Yemen and Jackie Chan from Singapore, who devoted much of their time to volunteer activities, winning them the title of "Public-spirited Star". Toiny Obed from Kenya was granted the "Sports Star" award. Munisov from Uzbekistan was awarded the "Arts Star" award. Yen San from Vietnam received the "Academic Star" award, and the Global Home Association earned the award for "Best Student Union".
