1. What is your major?
As I have been studying on a full-time basis at an English Language School, we have only one subject, namely English for Academic Purposes called EAP. We do reading and writing, practical speaking, and listening by means of cassettes. English is the language of the future, especially in the business world. What I mean to say is that when I am able to communicate well in English I will not only be able to go and study abroad and improve my qualifications, but also have mastered a very necessary tool for my future career.
2. What do you like most about your studies?
Well, I guess the speaking part. Please allow me to explain. Language is all about communication. So when I am able to communicate with someone in English, I feel that I have achieved something. I particularly like our free talk sessions with the foreign teachers. It gives me the opportunity to question them about their countries and cultures.
3. Which is the best university in China?
That’s an interesting question. Allow me to explain my personal view by shortly mentioning the following points: I believe that Peking University in Beijing is the best one in the country. For example, it has the highest percentage of students passing their courses of all the universities in China.
4. Could you sum up your study habits?
I have well established study habits. I always start my study promptly at eight in the evenings. I study for two hours, have a ten-minute break, and the study for another two hours. I follow this habit from Monday’s to Friday’s, but over the weekends I spend most time in relaxing with my family or friends.
5. Do you think your present subjects are relevant to society?
Certainly. Allow me to explain myself by shortly mentioning the following points: First, we often use case studies in class. What I mean is that the professor gives us examples from real life to examine and report on. Moreover, our lecturers and some advisors from the relevant industries have set up our study materials. What I mean to say is that the people who we are going to work for one day have had the opportunity to tell the university what they think we should be taught.
6. What kind of job would you prefer after graduation?
I would like to become a medical doctor. Please allow me to explain. Firstly, I would like to render a service in the community to which I will eventually belong. For example, I would like to assist the elderly that do not have the financial means to afford private hospitals.
7. What are your job prospects?
I am planning to become a Hotel Manager. I believe that the hotel industry will be growing greatly in future. People are becoming more affluent, and spend more and more of their money on holidays. In addition, I believe that after graduation I will be able to find a good job anywhere in the world. All hotels and resorts need well-trained professionals no matter where they are situated. The professionals ensure that hotel guests will have a good time and come back later.
