Exploring a Brave New World with Arabic
In 2013, inspired by the Belt & Road initiative, Jinhua Polytechnic opened up an Arabic program featuring a combination of language, business, and culture. It is the first Arabic program in the college nationwide. Over past few years, the number of overseas study and business development students has been constantly increasing.
In order to meet the needs of enterprises abroad, the college cooperates with the enterprises outside the school to build an overseas employment platform. In addition to working for Chinese companies in Arabic speaking countries, the demand from Arab companies is also rising.
Up till now, 50 students have participated in exchange programs and 31 students furthered their study overseas. (By Sun Mengting, translated by Lin Yuqin, edited by Mariam Ayad)
