Moreover, among the teachers, there are 3 PhD supervisors as well as 7 MA tutors. Of the education background of the teachers, 16 of them are holders of PhD degree and 120 are those of MA degree.   

The School of Foreign Languages attaches great importance to quality teaching, students’ language skills and practical abilities. Putting teaching at the heart of our work, we make every effort to enhance the quality of teaching and regard it as a lifeline for the sustainable development of the School. In particular, strict regulations are implemented on teaching management while measures are taken to help change the teaching manners and studying atmosphere for the better. Meanwhile, more efforts are being made to further the reform in education and improve field education. As a result, all the above-mentioned efforts have led to the increasing effective promotion of quality teaching as well as the students’ integrated qualities in terms of their grasp of the basics of foreign languages, innovation awareness and practical competence. In doing so, the aim is realized of cultivating the students to high-level and multitalented professionals possessing “many skills while specializing in one”.  

At the School, much endeavor is placed on enabling students to master essential language skills and practical abilities of the foreign language they major in. In order to help develop students’ practical capabilities, we have in place a training lab for simultaneous interpretation practice, several classrooms for situational language teaching and training which are respectively named the British Hall, the European Hall and the Japanese Hall, together with the Center for Experiments in Foreign-Language Teaching.   

Furthermore, much attention is paid to international exchanges and cooperation at the School of Foreign Languages. So far, we have established cooperative relations with more than 20 famous universities in the countries whose native languages are precisely the majors for the students at the School. To facilitate such exchanges, scholarships have been set up, which creates conditions for students to go and learn in those overseas universities. Every year, students of the School are organized to travel abroad for cultural experiencing and learning tour in such countries as Britain, the United States, Germany, France, Spain, Japan and Korea. Nearly 200 students a year succeed in going abroad for overseas exchange programs.
