A Description of an English Corner
Corner at the front of the English Department. More than forty, students turned up, including one Polish and three Russian students studying in our university.
To begin with, at our request, the Polish student sang the song Yesterday Once More, which was followed by the song My Heart Will Go on to two Chinese students. After that, we practiced tongue twisters and guessed some riddles. During the next two hours we talked freely with each other. Many of the participants are sports fans, including the Russian students and they talked a lot about the Olympic Games and European football matches, Moreover, as for the Chinese students, they learned something about the history of Vodka from the Russian students. On the other hand, all of the foreign students learned what Chinese usually do during the Spring Festival.
Everyone present enjoyed it very much. It is really true that people from different countries can exchange their ideas in English and get a better understanding of each other. And we need to work to build a cultural bridge between China and the rest of the world.
