Chinese Culture Matters
The Chinese course needs to be remained!
Learning Chinese is a step towards understanding the culture. It’s a fact that the Chinese is spoken in a lot of areas. There are many people who use this language – one fifth of the global population speaks Chinese as their native language. It will be easier for students to communicate with the locals and cover a fair bit of the whole world by learning the language. It not only helps students on travels throughout the country, but also open eyes to a range of literature and art.
China is the second largest economy in the world and one of the largest trading partners of the United States. Many US companies do business in China and have long-term investments. International businesses prefer to hire people who speak more than one language. For those who desire to improve their competitive edge in the job market, a Chinese course will give them an advantage. Many students have inquired about the possibility of more Chinese courses. China is a wonderful country in which to teach English while developing students' language and cultural skills.
The Chinese courses will move the College’s strategic plan forward. It will add to diversity on our campus through its promotion of mutual understanding between the US and Chinese cultures, and help increase the awareness of cultural diversity and communication. The Chinese course will contribute to GAC’s reputation regionally, nationally, and internationally. GAC will be more attractive for the students who are interested in Chinese, Asian culture, and diversity across the nation and abroad. It will involve internalization by promoting study abroad and exchange programs in mainland China, Hong Kong, and other Asian countries. It will also develop and strengthen collaborations and partnerships with educational institutions in China.
