With the continuous improvement of China's comprehensive national power, more and more foreign students come to China to study and exchange. They not only focus on culture, but also the exchange between economy and technology. What's more, many students take the internship in China as important job competition which shows that China is more and more attractive for foreign students.

As more and more foreign students of Chinese origin study in China, cultural identity is a factor that cannot be ignored.
