ST. GERMAIN - Ten Chinese students discovered everything from American manners to pizza in the Northland Pines School District.

They were here for three weeks.

Now the group is about to head back home after their immersion in the Northwoods.

The group visited grade schoolers at St. Germain Elementary Wednesday to teach the students about their home.

The Chinese students have experienced a little of of everything during their time here.

But the most fun often came after school hours.

"Many things, but the thing I love most is outside activities, like snow tubing and cross country skiing. That is super fun for me," says Eric Miao, one of the exchange students.

The group heads back home Friday.

Later this spring, two Northland Pines High Schoolers will travel to China for a week and a half as part of the same program.
