University launches new 'China crash course'
Updated: 2017-05-25

A group of 23 students from Belgium and the Netherlands came to Shanghai Polytechnic University on May 21-25 to take part in the school’s new five-day crash course on Chinese language and culture.

The intensive program included four lectures on business, catering, China’s economic and investment environment, and economic globalization. The students were also offered two hours of language training every day to improve their Chinese proficiency.

This was the second time the university had run the short course for European students this semester, after the school received positive feedback from its first group of European participants in April.

Meng Zhaoshang, dean at the School of International Exchange, briefed the students about the university and program at the program’s welcoming ceremony. He also expressed his hope that the students would enjoy their time in Shanghai.

Shanghai Polytechnic University plans to offer more courses in the future to further promote Chinese language and culture and attract more overseas students from Europe.
