Before the language course participants invited their older CDTF fellow students to a typically German dinner they had to go shopping in a local supermarket as part of their current cultural program and get various types of bread, cold cut, and cheese, pickles, tomatoes, cucumbers, small sausages, mustard and butter. Laying the table was also a new experience: silverware and glass to the right of the plate, folded napkin on the left. It was unusual for Chinese students to make sandwiches with cold cut or cheese, decorate them with cucumber and tomato slices and eat them with a boiled sausage with mustard. In their home country, they generally get three warm meals a day. Their fellow students, who are already studying in Paderborn, told them important things about the majors as well as the differences in exams at both study locations, looking for housing or how to get a scholarship in Germany.
