孟菲斯大学孔子学院参与国际游学推介会

        2014年9月10日,一年一度的孟菲斯大学国际游学推介会在孟菲斯大学户外学生广场举行。作为全球孔子学院成立十周年纪念和“孔子学院日”庆祝活动的一部分,孟菲斯大学孔子学院积极筹备,参与了此次游学推介会。孔院外方院长孔祥德教授及孟菲斯大学数百名学生也积极参与了本次活动。

象征幸运的中国结、憨态可掬的玩偶大熊猫和传统的中国服装,使得当日的中国游学展台与众不同,学生们纷至沓来询问游学中国的项目信息。此次推介会主要向当地学生介绍了留学中国的奖学金项目、短期游学项目和夏令营项目。目前,孟菲斯大学孔子学院为学生提供的留学及游学项目主要有三个:一是国家汉办设立的孔子学院奖学金,这一项目主要针对的对象是在大学中文系学习的本科生;二是与湖北大学和三峡大学合办的短期语言学习班,这一项目主要针对希望将中文学习与自己专业结合的学生;三是与华中师范大学合办的5周短期体验班,这一项目面向全校学生,无需中文基础,而且收费低,时间短,深受学生欢迎。三个项目都与学校的学位学分机制挂钩,学生在完成上述某个项目且成绩合格后,都可以拿到本大学相应的学分,因此深受学校留学与国际交流中心的推介。

      本次推介会在孟菲斯大学产生了极大的影响,是扩大孔子学院影响力的有力平台。通过此项活动,孔院为当地学生打开了一扇了解中国教育和孔子学院的窗户,也为他们学习汉语、游学中国提供了政策指导和信息资源帮助。

The Confucius Institute at the University of Memphis was delighted to participate in the study abroad fair on September 10th.  Lucky red knots and stuffed pandas adorned a table showcasing the available options for studying about and in China.  Hundreds of students were able to learn about the abundant opportunities that the university offers for studying Chinese Language and Culture.  In particular, pamphlets and current ASIT students were used to educate the students at the fair about the Asian Studies and International Trade major offered at the university through the Confucius Institute.  This wonderful program combines the best of economics, foreign language, and East Asian history classes to form a core of knowledge that will benefit students in many different careers.

     In addition, the Confucius Institute considers study abroad to be a vital part of learning about Chinese language and culture.  Currently, the university offers semester-long study abroad programs at Hubei University and Three Gorges University.  These two programs are a wonderful opportunity for students to expand their Chinese language skills and experience living in China.  The university also offers two short-term study abroad programs.  The first program is a two week trip to tour cities such as Beijing, Wuhan, and Shanghai.  The second program is an intensive five week program during the summer where students can earn six credits in Chinese language while living in the city of Wuhan. Three of the students working at the Chinese booth for the study abroad fair participated in the summer program this year. They were excited to share their experiences in China and encourage other students to study abroad, as well.
