Testimony

Shang Lei
These three years in France have truly been like an adventure for me. It has been fulfilling on many aspects : science, linguistics, culture and perhaps also philosophy. When a person takes his place in a completely new environment, unforeseen things happen from all sides. It pushes him to think differently and therefore more globally. I absolutely love these experiences. Thankfully for me, the story goes on...
