China Impression, a cultural immersion program targeting 22 Turkish students, drew to an end at the Shanghai University on Sept 9.

The two-week program introduced the students, all members of the Confucius Institute at Middle East Technical University, to various opportunities including improving their language proficiency and engaging in cultural activities.

Their footsteps have covered Shanghai and surrounding areas, such as the antique flavored local City God Temple, the renowned water town Wuzhen in Zhejiang, and the traditional Chinese gardens in Suzhou, Jiangsu province.

She also spoke highly of the students' strengthening Chinese connections, looked forward to their active roles in promoting Chinese culture in Turkey, and invited them to seek further studies in China.

The students expressed their gratitude to the school in fluent Chinese, as well as putting on singing and dancing performances, such as the famous Chinese melodies of Jasmine and You Exist in My Song, which won prolonged applause from the audience.
