A global leadership program gathering efforts from East China Normal University and Korea University drew to an end at the Shanghai-based school on Aug 17.

The month-long program attracted 100 students from South Korea to immerse in the profound Chinese culture.

Aside from the intense and informative Chinese language courses, which helped the foreign students greatly improve their language proficiency, they also went on several excursions around the city.

For example, they travelled across Zhujiajiao, where they got a better understanding of the unique atmosphere that makes China's water towns outstanding, and visited the former site of Korea Provisional Government in Shanghai, now a museum that records the history of the turbulent times.

The students were also impressed by various company visits, including ones to the Shanghai branches of tech giant Huawei and South Korea's largest instant noodle maker Nongshim, through which they got first-hand experiences of the region's rapid development.

The students said their trip to China was extremely rewarding and they look forward to studying here in the future.
