new semester! international students share their must-haves!

for those post-millennial boys and girls, the new semester not only means a start to something new, but also a great adventure. for some of them, it is the first time to leave home and come to a new country which is so far and so different.

  • how do they cope with their first day in china? 

  • what have they brought from their home country to ease homesickness? 

  • and what are their expectations of the new semester? 

metropolitan talked to some of them and let them share their must-have lists as well as some useful tips.

halting homesickness

on september 7, beijing language university welcomed their new students from all over the world.

on the main road of beijing language university campus, we met annalise bowden, an 18-year-old girl from texas, us, who is going to start her freshman year. she told us she brought some perfumes with her, which are all her favorites, and also had a pair of socks with american flags and a t-shirt with the word “texas”.

most of the girls we met were the same as annalise. they brought their favorite clothes and cosmetics to china, and want to start their new life here with the best self image.

“i brought some traditional clothes. see, i’m wearing one of them,” lili urooj from pakistan showed us her beautiful pakistani dress. “it’s like wearing the culture of your country.” she suggested newcomers bring clothes from their countries to school so that “they can perform in different clothes when the culture festival arrives.”

home flavor

if there is one thing one must take from their home country, it has to be the food. home flavor always make us happy and can ease homesickness with a simple bite. when talking about the must-have list, many freshmen also said they have brought their favorite food.

akhsya amran and sharizah rahman, from malaysia, both agreed that food is a must-have on their lists.

“of course the food. you can’t get it over here. so we brought a lot of things like spices, soy sauce and chili sauce.”

usman arshad from pakistan said he brought some rice here, saying that the rice from his home is very delicious and well-known all over the world.

marco matera is a 20-year-old from italy who brought some cheese to university.

“i also like chinese food. it’s quite good,” he said happily, “i think it depends. if you’re an open minded person and want to try new things, then you don’t need to bring too many things from your country.”

fillip sebok from slovakia also brought some food from his hometown, not for himself, but as a gift for his friends in china.

“i brought some sweets. because we’re in a very international environment here. it’s very nice to know other cultures and of course, their food,” said fillip.

an open mind

the biggest impression these young adults left on us is not only their love of their home countries, but also their international outlook and the courage of starting a new life on their own. just as the young malaysian man, ben chia said, “we should keep an open mind besides all these material things.”

“if you’re from the west, [and] you’re not very used to the culture, keeping an open mind will help you get through the first days.”

for most students, coming to china not only provides them an opportunity to study, but also enables them to see a real china through their eyes.

“i think china is great. it’s so clean here, and people are friendly,” said valerie sokolova from russia, “people told me that chinese people don’t know how to speak english. but yesterday when i had trouble on the street, many people came to help me, and some young people talked to me in english. they are really friendly.”

having been studying in china for three years, fillip is now getting used to his life here.

“i think many people [in my country] don’t know much about china. for example, they only know cities like beijing and shanghai; they only know china is very big. so, i’m always the one who tells them that china is a very complicated country. it’s very modern and changes very fast,” said fillip.

as for their expectations of the new semester? most of them gave me the same answer: improve their chinese!

“i hope i could be fluent in chinese, as i’m in a one-year chinese preparatory program,” said annalise.

“you should learn some basic chinese before you come,” suggested akhsya.

“local chinese will appreciate your effort if you can communicate with them in basic chinese,” she said.

can’t use this facepalm emoji anymore?! why?

the popularity of emojis has already caused plenty of controversy in china, but the latest issue is unlike the ones that came before.

can't use this facepalm emoji anymore?! why?

the facepalm emoji was filed for trademark in november 2017. [screenshot via weibo]

the facepalm is one of most recognizable and most used emojis on chinese instant messaging app wechat, and a trademark of the image that was made so it can be used on clothing has triggered a potential legal dispute between its creator and wechat’s parent company, the chinese tech giant tencent.

can't use this facepalm emoji anymore?! why?

tencent said it’s looking to file an objection in order to further review the trademark, beijing youth daily (byd) reports.

the emoji was filed for trademark by a retailer surnamed jin in november 2017 under a category for clothing that can include outfits for children and accessories, according to images that have surfaced online, showing that the case has been approved for initial review with china’s trademark office of the state administration for industry & commerce.

the retailer started printing the wechat facepalm emoji on clothing after seeing just how popular it was online.

jin brushed off concerns of ag真人官网平台app copyright infringement, saying, “it wasn’t as popular back then when i used it.” according got byd.

many netizens didn’t come to tencent’s defense in the issue, mainly because the company is so large that ag真人官网平台app copyright infringement complaints and allegations are common.

but the issue also caused a minor panic as many were no longer sure if they could still use the facepalm emoji after all, so they spammed the emoji all over social media.

other emojis that have gone viral, such as the doge emoji, are also being heavily posted on social media in an attempt by netizens to make sure other emojis they like can’t be ag真人官网平台app copyrighted.

what is trademark? can't use this facepalm emoji anymore?! why?

according to 8th article in the trademark law of the people’s republic of china, any mark that can distinguish the products of a natural person, a legal person, or an organization from those of others, including written characters, patterns, letters, 3d symbols, colors, and sounds etc, and combinations of these elements, can be registered as a trademark.

anyway, trademark is a brand.
