Hungarian boy Fekete Marcell Zoltan is visiting China for the fifth time thanks to a youth summer camp which focuses on giving young people an authentic taste of Chinese culture.

Held by the Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU), the annual summer camp, named You and Me, in Beijing, provides an interactive platform combining courses and entertainment.

The summer camp started almost a decade ago since launched in 2008 and is sponsored by Hanban, a non-profit organization affiliated with the Ministry of Education, with the cooperation of local universities, organizations and institutes around the world.

Until now, it has attracted thousands of young people from across 22 cities in 17 countries during the past ten years.

"It happens to me every time I come to China, and brings me a totally different experience," Fekete Marcell Zoltan, a 15-year-old boy who studied Chinese for more than eight years before the 10-day trip, said.

He said he'd like to know more about China, how it is changing, and how China is changing the world.

"I don't want to skip any chance to get a deeper inside look at Chinese culture,"he added.

Seeing as Fekete has passed the Level 5 of the HSK Chinese Language Test for foreign learners, he can hold a conversation in Chinese without any language obstacles.

"I'll prepare to complete the highest level now, and if I had the chance, I want to stay in Beijing or Shanghai for further study," Fekete said hopefully.
