The East China Normal University offered its international students a chance to learn about the development of China's rural countryside.

A group of 24 international students from 15 different countries led a trip to Xinqiao town in Jiangsu Province, on Sept 28.

The trip was a part of the China Stories courses customized for international students, aiming to increase their practical learning about the lifestyles in China's rural communities.

At the Xinqiao Experimental School, the students visited some brand-new buildings, state-of-the-art labs, neat classrooms, and sporting grounds.

They were impressed by China's nine-year compulsory education policy, which enables students over six-year-old to enjoy free education at both primary and secondary schools.

Local company and industrial park gave the students a first-hand look at China's modernization with heir first-class machinery equipment.

The students also tried to dig sweet potatoes under the guidance of local farmers who showed them proper techniques.

Some of the students noticed the slogans all over the villages that read if agriculture is strong, China will be strong.

Moli, a native of Kazakhstan, said: "it is my first trip to China's countryside. It's so beautiful here. People are wealthy. Now I realize that it is a bias that most parts of rural China are underdeveloped."

Mu Yan, a student from Pakistan, said the tour inspired hope for his own country. "The rural environment here is excellent. Residents live a modern lifestyle with running tap-water, and round-the-clock power supply, which are not available in the countryside of many other countries. I think the development of China's rural areas is worth learning for my own country."
