The 2017 Chinese Poetry Recitation Contest for International Students in Shanghai, with the theme being ‘Poetry for Endless Afterthoughts, Ode to Eternal Friendship,’ took place on Nov. 19, 2017.

Through the WeChat public account of the International Student Office at Tongji University, the notice of the Preliminary for the Recitation Contest was widely advertised among the international students in our university, and thus drew a significant number of contestants from abroad who were interested in the recitation of Chinese literary works.

Eventually, participants from 34 countries studying in 16 universities in Shanghai entered the final competition with 18 recitation performances.
