Foreign couriers recently started serving customers in Shanghai after most of the deliverymen went back to their hometowns for the Spring Festival, Chinanews.com reported Monday.

Eighty foreign students in China have been recruited by a special delivery program initiated by China’s e-commerce platform Suning. The platform has signed cooperative agreements with colleges, offering internship and chances of social practice for the students.

According to an employee of Suning, the foreign couriers are required to send New Year greetings to the customers in Shanghai dialect, and they have to understand the “do and don’ts” about the Spring Festival.



Two brothers from Zambia surnamed Baitong and Weimo, studying respectively in Shanghai and Beijing, are currently part of the program. “I feel very special about this experience, since it presents me the authentic taste of the Chinese New Year,” said Weimo.

“We also hope to offer a whole new experience for the customers during the most important Chinese festival,” the employee of Suning said.

It is currently illegal for foreign students in China, to be employed by any company. This includes unpaid internships. I'm afraid those students are about to find themselves on a flight home, very soon.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words
