Although the freshmen have arrived on campus, they don't start regular classes right away. Their first few weeks are orientation lectures and military exercises.
The drill sargeant keeps the troops in formation, while the basketball boys keep on playing on the other half of the court, which is right in front of our apartment.
Even in uniform the freshmen are keen to wave and talk to us, especially during their breaks from drill practice.
English signs are rare on campus, so we had to get a photo of this welcome banner.
We started teaching our Culture course, with a group exercise to make posters anwering the question, "What is Culture?" Each group of 4 chose a different kind of diagram, and then delegated a presenter to share it with the whole class. We were really pleased with their enthusiasm.
