Central Asia Chat: 5 students talk language, culture, and why they love China
Ever wondered what sound people in Uzbekistan think a dog makes? Or how people greet friends in Kazakhstan? Students from these central Asian countries as well as the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan joined Lucy and Rachel for a quiz to answer these and other fun questions.
Many of the students are studying Chinese language at Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU). China and central Asian countries have enjoyed centuries of trade and exchange, impacting people and cultures all along the ancient Silk Road.
Building on these relations, the first-ever China-Central Asia Summit is being held on May 18 and 19 in Xi'an, a city with a fascinating history as a trade center of the ancient Silk Road.
