This activity encompassed four different parts: meeting and greeting new friends, playing shuttlecock matches, rope skipping and playing tug of war. Under the guidance of Miss. Yuan, students stood in two rows to greet with each other; then, the shouting and cheering of the audiences opened the match: the two classes started fierce competitions of shuttlecocks, skipping ropes and tug-of-war. Jin Donghui from class A1 and Guang Wen from class A4, representing their respective class, took shuttlecock game; their moves were flexible and skillful, winning incessant applause from the rest of students. This competition not only strengthened the cohesion of each class but also enhanced the friendship between the two classes.

这场活动分为踢毽子和跳绳两个项目。首先进行的是踢毽子项目，学生一共分为三组。每组七个成员。在经过几分钟的热身后，比赛正式开始。在第一组组员合力踢出20下的时候，第二组中的一个成员仅凭单人就赶超第一组的总成绩，在其他小伙伴惊呆之时，该组的另一个成员又创造了一个新的个人成绩。因此比赛毫无悬念地由第二组获得。 接下来进行的是小组跳绳比赛。气氛很热烈，比赛再一次由第二组小组成员获胜。最后，老师们对获胜的第二组成员进行了颁奖。活动结束后，学生们都愉快地进行了合影留念，并向开展活动的老师表示了感谢。（中文编辑：石思,文小倩；英文编辑：SOUFIANE BAHRI（何善））

For over a millennium a rather unassuming evergreen shrub has remained one of seven necessities of life in China, on par with rice and firecrackers. It seems fitting, on the 24th of October 2017, the class of B1 experienced their very first traditional tea ceremony on the campus of HUST. With an assortment of teas at hand, the teacher presented the particulars of this curious ritual with slides; the correct three finger cup hold, aroma’s equal standing with taste and the subtleties of bitter, sweet and fruity blends. From the clay teapot’s sinuous path from cup to cup to the courteous double tap. Teacher presented students with Oolong, Green Tea of En’shi, and Black Tea of Gold Manes. The session ended with a unanimous hope that there is another opportunity to partake in a tea tasting ceremony, although maybe this time with a larger kettle.
活动结束，老师把这些饺子全部煮熟后，留学生们争先恐后地品尝自己的劳动成果。当看到他们纷纷竖起大拇指，欢快地聊着天，老师相信他们彼此之间的感情又得到了加深。（中文：唐青，张妍；英文：Tang Qing，Zhang Yan）
