Thirty two overseas students finished a month-long traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) program in Shanghai on July 31.

The students were from countries such as Austria, Russia, Malaysia, the United States, Germany, Spain, France, Malta, Dominica, the Czech Republic, Brazil, Hungary, Switzerland, and South Korea.

Over the month long program, the students took part in various Chinese culture-related courses, visited the TCM Museum, experienced making dumplings (a traditional Chinese dish), watched Peking opera and acrobatics, and studied the Chinese language, the meridians and acupuncture points of human body, and tai chi.

At the closing ceremony of the program, some students gave a tai chi performance, and some wrote a Chinese song based on their month-long experience.

This TCM program was part of the Shanghai Summer School programs sponsored by the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, with the aim of attracting more overseas students to experience China, learn the Chinese language, and study in Shanghai.
