Nanjing University
Study in China - Colleges and Universities

Nanjing University, one of China's key comprehensive universities under the direct supervision of the Ministry of Education, dates from 1902 when it was known as Sanjiang Normal School. During the following decades, it evolved as Liangjiang Normal School, Nanjing Higher Normal School, National Southeast University, the Fourth Zhongshan University, and National Central University. On August 8, 1949, National Central University was renamed National Nanjing University. In October 1950, as required by the Ministry of Education, the name was changed to Nanjing University (NJU). In 1952, due to the nationwide restructuring of colleges and universities, some academic units such as the School of Engineering and the School of Agriculture were separated from the university; meanwhile, it merged with the School of Liberal Arts and the School of Sciences of the University of Nanking founded in 1888. Its name remained while its campus moved from Sipailou to Gulou.

Language Exchange --- I recommend ForeignerCN friends & language partners to anyone with cross-border interests!
Hachimitsusan, Colorado USA/captain0051, Kobe Japan

World FriendsLiving in the central U.S. it has been difficult for me to have friendships with East Asian people as there are so few living here and the cultural values of East Asians seem to be only vaguely understood or appreciated here. My wife is a Japanese and we travel back and forth to Japan fairly frequently but for me personally as an American born guy. I find it difficult to learn more about Japanese language and culture when we are not actually there. I find my membership in Worldfirends to be a very special and helpful resource for meeting new East Asian friends and especially with Japanese people who can speak both Japanese and English languages. I have studied Japanese language for many years in classes here in the U.S. but most of it has been academic and separated from the actual daily concerns of everyday Japanese life. My ForeignerCN friends & language partners contacts have been very helpful for my developing a deeper understanding of the language and how it applies to real world situations. I consider the availability of ForeignerCN friends & language partners as a special and much needed resource for anyone in the two general areas of the world (East Asia and the U.S.) to communicate, exchange cultural information, and simply to get more familiar with each other as friends and people. The ForeignerCN friends & language partners administrators and web hosts have always been helpful and courteous when I have contacted them with my questions and concerns. ForeignerCN friends & language partners has fulfilled many of the wishes and desires I have had for more contact with Japanese people when I am not actually there myself..and I recommend it to anyone having similar interests in developing their language skills and desire for cultural exchange.

Germany Spirit and Chinese Gastronomy
Foreigners in China - Foreigners in China
“Did you eat?” This was the most common greeting in China in 1996. In the beginning of 1990s, I often heard people extending greetings to their neighbors in this way, whenever in afternoon or in evening.

“Yes, I did.” Answers were always brief and stereotyped. These answers were all beyond all questions—was there anybody who didn’t have his or her meal at 1 o’clock I in the afternoon or 7 o’clock in the evening?
