    From March 25 to 31, a youth delegation from Stavropol, Russia, paid a visit to Shanghai and met with Zhou Yajun, Vice President of the Shanghai People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, who warmly welcomed the delegation.

    Timofeeva Olga, head of the delegation, said that except for herself who has studied Chinese in Changchun, it is the first time for all the teachers and students to visit China. Three students on the delegation are currently learning Chinese. Though they started only two years ago, they are already deeply attracted to China’s time-honored culture and history. The visit to Shanghai and China will inspire their passion for learning Chinese and contribute to the friendship between China and Russia.

    After the meeting, the two sides sang together widely loved Russian classics, including Moscow Nights and Troika. Students on the delegation also sang delightful Russian popular songs.

    During the visit, the delegation had a friendly exchange with students from Shanghai Foreign Language School and watched a martial art performance.
