One of the many advantages of studying abroad in Shanghai with CAPA at East China Normal University (ECNU) is the opportunity to engage with other students from all over the world. There are over 100 different nationalities on the campus - in the international dormitories, in Mandarin language classes, in the affordable student cafeterias and in the clubs and societies you'll be welcome to join.
Another way of mingling with the international crowd is by joining in on the annual ECNU International Culture Festival Talent Show. CAPA's Shanghai Resident Director Colin Speakman, was there up front and center to watch this year's show, take photos and interview, on behalf of CAPA World, a key performer: CAPA's graduate Academic and Program Services Assistant, Tomas Hlinka.
Tomas combines work for CAPA with studying at ECNU himself on a master's program in Chinese Linguistics. He is in his second year at the university. Hailing from Slovakia, Tomas represented one of 41 nationalities involved in this show.
