Secondly, he elaborated on the representative post-boom writers in Latin-America and their works with vivid and abundant examples. Lastly, he shared with us his prolonged teaching and studying experience, hoping that the students could gain a better understanding of research approaches, and work hard in order to learn Spanish well.

Such exchange of ideas and thoughts benefited both sides.
