Department of Applied Foreign Languages



This department employs modern hardware and software facilities and a three-in-one curriculum combining foreign languages, business administration and information technology to train foreign language professionals who are adept in both theory and practice and also well developed in humanities.



The curriculum includes a wide range of courses covering four core domains: foreign languages; business administration; English teaching; and information technology. Widespread as they are, great importance is placed on listening and speaking skills, and on preparing students to become skilled readers, writers and translators.
