Confucius Institute Winter School
Following the success of the Summer school last year, the Confucius Institute, in collaboration with colleagues from China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL) and Bangor University, welcomed Fifty students from (CUPL) to attend Winter school and learn more about the culture and social life in Bangor, practise English pronunciation and explore exciting facts on British Law.
The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with over 95% of the students grading the summer school as excellent. Some students also commented:
“The best part of the Winter School is that the teacher actually talk to every one of us and treat us like real friends, which is usually not the case in China. And it's great to have conversations with native speakers. Even if we are not really good at or familiar with certain things, he is always patient and explains everything.”
“Through five days of study, I harvest a lot. The winter School trip left a deep and beautiful impression on me. Thank you for the teachers' company.”
“The five-day course provided help and inspiration for my future legal English study. Professor Anthony's class was highly interactive, which enhanced my confidence in communicating with others in English.”
LI Dandan from CUPL's School of Foreign Studies commented:
“We are grateful to Bangor Confucius Institute for organizing the first winter camp for CUPL students. The course was exciting and lively, and the lecturer, Anthony Brooks, was attentive and interacted with every student, despite the large number of students attending the class. Once again, I would like to thank Director Lina and Co-director Fu Yao for their thorough organization, and I look forward to the next English language school for CUPL students at Bangor Confucius Institute!”
Prof FU Yao, the Chinese co-Director of the Confucius Institute, said:
“The winter school opened a window for CUPL students to gain a deeper understanding of the English language, British culture, and the legal system. It was planned and organized to cater not only for students but also to staff at our partner university, CUPL. We are very proud to be able to offer useful courses to our partners in China and look forward to organizing more courses in the coming year.'
