The Goal

Based on students' educational backgrounds, potentials, career opportunities and experts' opinions, we designed a 4-year integrated curriculum which aims to strengthen students' language skills and develop their specialties and interests.

Through our meticulously-designed curriculum, students can build up professional skills so that they will have more a desirable career. Professional knowledge, technology competence, morality and humane accomplishment were also taken into consideration when designing the course, to ready students for future challenges.

The Curriculum

The 4-year integrated curriculum was designed to implement trainings for basic language skills and communicative competence. In the first and second year, fundamental language education, including training courses in listening, speaking, reading, writing and translation, is emphasized. Following that, two programs, English Teaching and Tourism and MICE Industry and are provided for students' selection. We do this for equipping students with competence to work in these specialized fields. 

The majority of students in extension education and in-service program work in industries, hence, we design a curriculum which is mainly comprised with teaching and tourism related courses to meet students' demands. Besides, in order to make our students more competitive, we zealously encourage them to take international language standardized tests, for example, TOEFL and TOEIC. Besides, we also urge students in obtaining professional certification in computer skills, translation and English teaching.

For those students from other departments, we offer optional business English and English for Specific Purpose programs; they can also take English proficiency test preparation programs provided by the Language Center . By taking these courses, they can improve the English ability in their professional fields.
