海龟 ( "Sea Turtle" = Returnee)
[ hǎiguī ] "Sea Turtle" This term is used to refer to Chinese nationals who have studied or worked abroad and have now returned to China, bringing with them advanced knowledge and skills. It is used because the Chinese pronunciation of 'sea turtle' is similar to the phrase 'to return from across the sea'. Example “大批留学生归国,他们有了新的名字叫“海归””。 =“When many study abroad students returned to China, they found they had a new name "Sea Turtles"".
