She hoped that the students would gain more knowledge and find new friends at Nankai University.


Zhang Huijing, Chinese Dean of University of Los Andes’ Confucius Institute, gave a speech in Chinese and Spanish. She said that Nankai University is a renowned university in China, and it is admirable that so many young students could come to Nankai. She hoped the students could learn Chinese and experience Chinese culture not only with their minds, but also with their hearts, and became a bridge for further friendly relationships between China and Colombia.


Li Jun, representative teacher of the Summer Camp, introduced the students to discipline arrangement, class rules, and other important matters. The 2016 University of Los Andes’ Summer Camp was officially opened.


The Summer Camp is supported by Confucius Institute Headquarters/Chinese Hanban, and sponsored by Nankai University’s College of Chinese Language and Culture. The Camp will last for three weeks. The College arranged special courses in accordance to students’ characteristics. The courses include not only traditional Chinese culture classes, like language, calligraphy, painting, music, etc., but also various cultural experiences. The Summer Camp aims at helping students to learn Chinese language and understand Chinese culture in a short time.
