(The talk was given in Chinese, but I will briefly summarize it here.) The talk started with a brief introduction to Spain, including its territory, population, administrative division, and languages. The second part of the talk mainly focused on the cultural spectrum, including its gastronomy, arts, football, famous festivals and interesting Spanish inventions. The final part of talk mentioned some of the most important etiquette of the Spanish society, such as basic phrases for salutation, handshaking, cheek kissing, table manner, Spanish humor.
