Students from the United States joined physical education classes at Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) on Monday, exploring Chinese culture through table tennis and Kung Fu.

Dozens of students from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) played table tennis with their Chinese counterparts and discussed their school experiences.

Kayla Kristchil, who has played table tennis at home in America, matched evenly with her Chinese partner during the class. Kristchil, whose father introduced her to the sport, shared that she used to play for hours with her elder sister.

During breaks, Kristchil and BFSU students exchanged insights about their respective cities and school life. "We talked about the city and how it is different from American cities. She was wearing a gym shirt, and we love gym shirts too," Kristchil said, noting that physical education classes are not mandatory at IUP.
