Before the new term began, two international students from Netherlands had come to TKK. It has been nearly three months since they landed. Recently, an interview was given to Robbert- one of the exchange students.

TKK---A new hometown for Robbert
Robbert came to China in September. He said he thought it would be a great adventure When it comes to Chinese culture, Robbert said “Awesome” was the only word that can be used to describe the profound culture and express his respect to it.
Robbert said he was rather impressed by his first visit to TKK. When he first arrived here, he was really shocked because the campus looks like a beautiful picture. He noted, “I like China and TKK, TKK is my new hometown.””

TKK students are really friendly
During the interview, I asked Robbert whathe thinks about the surroundings in our campus. He said that all of his daily routine was scheduled by the fellow members of International Office. Therefore he has made friends with some ofthe Chinese students and they are easy-going, nice and friendly. He later added that the academic atmosphere here is quite good because many students read in the open early in the morning every day.

working as a web developer at the company. He also remarked that his internship experience gave him a deeper understanding of responsibility.
