付 昕 ：中国政法大学国际教育学院，北京
With the deepening of China’s reform and her rapid economic growth, the number of foreign stu-dents to China has been on quick rise, and China’s Ministry of Education has taken the quantity of foreign students and the quality of their education as an important parameter in weighing the de-gree of internationalization for higher-learning institutes. In recent years, there have been various emergencies occurred amongst the foreign students in China, and the number of cases has been on the rise, which gives an alarm to the related management. It has become an important task for the management staff of foreign students to help them face the cultural shock brought about by their study in China, get accustomed to their new life, and reduce the pressure of their cross-cultural adaptations. The paper starts from the characteristics of foreign students, and tries to seek a solu-tion to the problems encountered by them in their cross-cultural adaptations in China. The paper points out that traditional Chinese culture is one essential factor in attracting foreign students, and experience-type activities, such as the practice of Taiji, is conducive to their cross-cultural adaptations. It also suggests that more study should be done on the positive role that activities like Taiji plays in promoting the quality education of foreign students.
