The puzzles were following by a performance of 2 volunteers in the Confucius Institute of Artois. While SHEN Wenjing was playing Guqin, one of the oldest Chinese traditional instruments, WEI Wenke performed the calligraphy which pushed the lecture to a new high.
The last activity is to taste Chinese authentic traditional food. The colorful and savory dishes which overspread the long table were all cooked by the volunteers in the Confucius Institute: fried chicken, spiced beef, double-cooked pork slices, fish filets, broccoli with chopped garlic, spiced peanuts and so on. The dished were eaten up quickly with full of praise.
The activity went on successfully. With the solving of the 15 puzzles, the audience obtained a deeper understanding about Chinese culture and removed certain stereotyped images about China.

The club also expressed their willing to cooperate more with the Confucius Institute of Artois to enhance the friendship between China and France.
