TRANSCRIPT:

ANDY LIU: A lot of Chinese people who live in Athens, they just study every day.

(They) don't have some ideas, don't have some dreams, but we're different.

We have some plans for the future.

I should study hard with English.

I can get a lot of opportunities for jobs, for my future.

I enjoy mixing some culture, because the world, I think the globe, is one family. Maybe after 50 years they are same language, it's just my dream, they are same culture.
