Since then, Zhanjiang has an English "business card". "Welcome to the inclusive Simsim Studio... Please feel free to enjoy... " Friends, when you open the website http://simsimstudio.yeah.net (English version) and surf within, maybe you didn't know, this is the masterpiece of a New Zealand overseas student from Zhanjiang, Siyi Yang. When the website was first launched during this year's Spring Festival, it immediately attracted the attention of many netizens. Yang Siyi (English name "Sim Yang") is now a second-year management student at the University of Waikato, known as “Harvard University of the Southern Hemisphere”. While studying abroad, Sim was browsing the website of his hometown and saw that Zhanjiang did not yet have an English publicity website, so he came up with the idea of using English websites to promote Zhanjiang and encourage people in Zhanjiang to learn English. Bearing in mind the goal of "Learning English, Reviving Zhanjiang", Sim launched the specialised website SimsimStudio.yeah.net with the help of a few friends during the Spring Festival. The aim is to make the website a dedicated one for Zhanjiang people to learn English and promote Zhanjiang in English. Reporter: Weimao Pan
