Distinguished leaders, dear collogues and students, good morning,
My name is Long Yin. I am a Chinese teacher. It is my great honor here to represent all the teachers in International College to give special welcome to all of you and congratulate you in your effort and courage to come to study in a foreign country. We are so happy to see so many new faces today. We are delighted that you have chosen CQUPT to further your education, please make use of your stay here and take advantage of every opportunity to improve yourselves. Please be sure to use your abilities to their fullest, to expand and broaden your horizons.
To think about your life here is not as a competition, but as an adventure. CQUPT is an adventure that should have at least three elements: First, Trying New Things; Second, Combining Theory with Practice and Third, Deciding what you stand for. Spend your time doing not what you know you can do, but trying out things you’ve never tried.
You come afar from different countries, with different customs and languages, yet you all come here and share something in common, the pursuit of excellence of self, the brand new start of life and the great expectation of future.
The teachers here are quite kind and responsible and we will work hard to teach you in an interesting and relevant way. You will find the beauty of Chinese language and also the charm of traditional Chinese culture. We are not only your teachers but also your friends.
With confidence that this will be an exciting and rewarding year for us, I offer my best wishes for an enjoyable successful semester at CQUPT. And also I believe that these years at CQUPT will be among the most treasured moments in your lifetime. I truly hope that your stay in China is a pleasant one and make CQUPT your new home.
