今天必小编要介绍一个名叫《VIEWS ON CHINA》的系列小栏目，该栏目对就读于对外经贸大学的一些外国留学生做了小采访，考验一下他们对中国时事的了解程度。
1. Why did you choose to study abroad, specifically in China?
Sophia: I really like China. That’s why I came here. And also I think I am in the center of the world right now. So I think I have a very great experience here.
Issac: I chose China because of the economy growing in a fast pace. So I thought this would be the right place for me.
2. How have you found studying and living here in China?
Aminetta: So far it has been good. Well, awesome, really. Just a few challenges here and there. But as a whole, it has been awesome.
3. Have you heard of the “Two Sessions” before? Do you know what they do?
Eric: Oh, yeah, I have heard it. I followed the news. Well, it is about the interests of the country and its development.
4. Would you propose any other changes, to make your time here better?
Issac: I think the schedules (as well), they have to be fixed to accommodate the students, because most of the courses interfere with other courses, so it becomes really difficult for students to abide.
So, what are the two sessions?
The two sessions are a special time of the year in China. They are the meetings of the National People’s Congress and the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference , which take place once a year.
Why are the two sessions important?
The people who attend the two sessions will make many big decisions for China, including making and changing laws and electing national leaders. These two sessions allow people to raise important issues facing our society and discuss possible solutions.
Every year, during the two sessions, our government will look back at its work in the past year and suggest new policies for the coming year.
