The International Student Symposium for Business Chinese Class was conducted in the School of International Education on October the 6th. This event was presided by Dr. Huang Chao, Director of the Office of the Center for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language, with honorary attendance involving two guests, Professor Liu Gang from School of Economics, and International Counsellor Xiong Ranran.
Starting off the Symposium, MAYSA SAHETMYRADOVA (Chinese name: 美莎) from Turkmenistan, HASAN ABDULLAH MOHAMMED MOHSEN AL-MANSOUB (Chinese name: 何山) from Yemen, and DIANA MARIA CESPEDES ARCANI (Chinese name: 黛安娜) from Bolivia expressed their individual opinions on the class. The students felt that the Business Chinese class of HUST possess both reasonable curriculum and practical content. After more than two months of study, they have all demonstrated substantial improvement in exercising Chinese Language, providing a solid foundation for future career development.
Professor Liu went on to give a positive evaluation of the curriculum in HUST’s Business Chinese class. He pointed out that the professional background, business knowledge, and Chinese proficiency are equally important for the students in said class. He encouraged them to continuously improve their business application knowledge and core competitiveness while learning Chinese well, and strive to become the international talents that Chinese companies urgently need.
In order to better serve the academic aim of Business Chinese class and further highlight our school's Business Chinese agenda, a series of business visits and social practice activities will be launched in the future, such as organized on-site visits later this month to some well-known agricultural, industrial, and circulation companies in Hubei Province for Business Chinese class students. By the principle of "moving classroom into the enterprise", it ensures both the organic integration of school classrooms and corporate courses, as well as the standard and recognition of the Business Chinese class of HUST.
