Recently, the “Tourism Feature” Chinese Bridge Online Group Project, hosted by the Center for Language Education and Cooperation under the Ministry of Education and undertaken by Donghua University, has concluded. This online group project has gathered nearly 100 students from ECU (the Egyptian Chinese University), Moi University in Kenya and other universities registered to study.
The teaching team of the "Chinese Center" of DHU’s International Cultural Exchange School has carefully designed various courses with rich contents according to the characteristics of the project. In the Chinese live classes, students learned and used Chinese in a relaxed and interesting classroom atmosphere to improve their Chinese proficiency. In the cultural lectures, professors from the Glorious Sun School of Business and Management of DHU and practitioners in the tourism industry introduced the development journey of China's tourism market, the impact of the epidemic on the tourism industry, and the transformation and development of the tourism industry in the post-epidemic era from a professional perspective. In the online communication session, students from different colleges of DHU and the campers made lively and interesting exchanges on travel plans, travel software, and travel experiences. In addition to online learning, students also got to know more about history, humanities, and nature through carefully recorded video resources and after-class review and expansion.
At the commencement ceremony, Waffa, a senior student at ECU, said that the key to learning Chinese is to dare to try, and communicating with different people can make one grow faster. Kenyan students Wang Yisai and Tian Mutai, etc. expressed their gratitude to the Center for Language Education and Cooperation, Chinese Bridge, Donghua University and the teachers.
It is learnt that in this online session of Chinese Bridge, the Kenyan “Textile and Clothing Feature”, Canada “Sports Feature” and Egypt’s “Tourism Feature” online projects undertaken by DHU have all come to an end successfully. More than 300 students from Kenya, Canada and Egypt have registered to study and the project has been well received by foreign teachers and students. In the future, the International Cooperation Office will continue to work with the International Cultural Exchange School to integrate internal and external resources, expand inter-school cooperation and develop feature projects to tell the "Chinese story" and promote communication between Chinese and foreign youth.
