As the Year of the Tiger approaches, Shanghai University recently held a "Tiger in Chinese Culture" lecture to involve international students in Chinese Lunar New Year festivities.

More than 80 international students attended the lecture online or offline. Three of them found the Year of the Tiger is in fact the same as their birth year. Matovu Brian Desire from Uganda, one of the three students, said he has embraced the Chinese zodiac culture after staying in China for nearly five years.

In Chinese culture, the tiger is the king of all beasts and it symbolizes bravery and strength. Chinese people often refer to the spirited dragon and dynamic tiger, or soaring dragon and leaping tiger when referring to symbols of bravery and strength.

The international students showed great interest in many tiger-themed traditional Chinese items such as the tiger-head hats and shoes presented during the lecture. They also learned to make tiger-themed paper-cutting works.
