Why Did I Choose Wenzhou University?

为什么选择温州大学?

My first contact with Wenzhou University dates back to May 2016, when I have travelled to China for a month and visited numerous tourist destinations. In the face of globalization, China has successfully preserved its own culture and a long history. During my stays, I found that China is not only rich in culture but also an excellent choice to continue my studies. While travelling in Zhejiang Province, I was introduced to Wenzhou University by some friends whom later took me on a day-tour around the university. My first expression of Wenzhou University was that the university is huge, convenient, and has a very nice environment. The university offered various course programmes for foreigners and I was interested in its Chinese Language and Literature program. I made up my mind on the same day and proceed with the admission process with Mdm. Even Chi at the College of International Education office. I learned Chinese Language & Literature from 2016-2018 and in the mean time I have completed HSK-4 in 2017.

我与温州大学的第一次接触可以追溯到20165月,当时我已经在中国旅行了一个月,参观了众多旅游景点。面对全球化,中国成功保留了自己的文化和悠久的历史。在旅行期间,我发现中国不仅文化底蕴深厚,也是我继续学习的绝佳选择。在浙江省旅游时,我的一些朋友向我介绍了温州大学,后来他们带我参观了学校一天。我对温州大学的第一印象是,这所学校很大,很方便,环境很好。学校为外国人开设了各种课程,而且我对学校的汉语言学习项目很感兴趣。当天我就下定决心,并在国际教育学院池老师的帮助下办理了入学手续。我在2016-2018年学习了汉语言文学,同时在2017年完成了HSK-4的考试。

Why Did I Continue to Learn in WZU after your Chinese Language Study?

为什么学完汉语后还继续在温州大学学习?

The main reason I decided to further my education in Wenzhou University is because I was completely satisfied with my short-term experience studying Chinese language. My experience as an international student overall has been positive. To me, being in the university is not only an experience; it is also a preparation for my future. With the supports from my family, friends and WZU’s staff and lecturers, I am convinced to pursue my passion of studying economics in WZU. In addition, Wenzhou City is quite a nice place to live in as compared to other large cities, Wenzhou City is relatively affordable.

我决定在温州大学继续深造的主要原因是我对短期学习汉语的经历非常满意。作为一名留学生,我的经历和感受总体上是很好的。对我来说,在大学里不仅是一种经历,也是为我的未来做准备。在家人、朋友以及温州大学老师们的支持下,在温大学习经济方面的专业成为我的热情所在。另外,温州市是一个相当不错的地方,相对于其他大城市来说,温州市的消费水平也在可接受范围之内。

My Feelings on Wenzhou City and Wenzhou University

我对温州市和温州大学的感受

The Weather and Seasonal Activities (天气和季节性活动)

Wenzhou City gets its name because of its mild climate without extreme cold in winters and extreme hot in the summers. For each season, there would be various activities held by the university such as International Students’ China in my Eyes Essay Competitions, Sports Meeting in the Autumn, field trips during winter and summer, International Students’ Talents Competitions and many more. Personally, I love the autumn season in Wenzhou and I mostly enjoyed outdoor activities during the season.

温州市因气候温和,冬无严寒,夏无酷暑而得名。每一个季节,学校都会举办各种各样的活动,比如留学生 "我眼中的中国 "征文比赛、校运会、寒暑假“感知中国”活动、留学生才艺大赛等等。就我个人而言,我很喜欢温州的秋天,在这个季节里,我主要喜欢户外活动。

The Local Dialect (Wenzhouhua)(地方方言(温州话))

Although Chinese Mandarin is widely spoken, the local dialect is Wenzhouhua. Truth to be told, it is regarded as the most difficult dialect in China because it is incredibly different from any Chinese language.

虽然中国的普通话被广泛使用,但当地的方言是温州话。事实上,温州话被认为是中国最难懂的方言,因为它与任何一种中国话都有很大的不同。

Local Attractions (当地景点)

Wenzhou City is blessed with its natural high and green mountains, deep valleys, sea view and so on. I have been to most of the popular scenic spot in Wenzhou such as Yandang Mountain, Nanxi River, Jiangxinyu Island and Dongtou Island. Daluo Mountain and Wenzhou Amusement Park are another scenic area that is located close to Wenzhou University Town. It is a popular recreation spot among international students.

温州市有得天独厚的自然高山和青山、深谷、海景等。雁荡山、楠溪江、江心屿、洞头岛等温州大部分热门景区我都去过。大罗山和温州乐园是另一个靠近温州大学城的景区。这里是深受留学生喜爱的休闲娱乐场所

My Special Experience in China

我在中国的特别体验

China is a big country with a huge population of 1.3 billion people. Ever since I came to China, I have been travelling to many different places, encountered different people and its culture, and learned through their way of life. To date, Shanghai City, Guangdong Province (Guangzhou, Shenzhen), Shandong Province (Jinan, Qingdao), Zhejiang Province (Hangzhou, Ningbo, etc), Jiangsu Province (Nanjing, Suzhou, Taizhou), Yunnan Province (Kunming, Lijiang & Dali) and Tibet Autonomous Region were among the places I have been in China.

中国是一个拥有13亿人口的大国。自从我来到中国后,我走过了许多不同的地方,遇到了不同的人和他们的文化,并通过他们的生活方式学到很多知识。迄今为止,上海市、广东省(广州、深圳)、山东省(济南、青岛)、浙江省(杭州、宁波等)、江苏省(南京、苏州、泰州)、云南省(昆明、丽江、大理)和西藏自治区都是我在中国去过的地方。

Campus Life

校园生活

When I first lived in Wenzhou University, I stayed in the Expert Building of South Campus during my study as a Chinese language course student. South campus of Wenzhou University is where the Administration Building is located. The campus is huge and well-known for its own beauty. The colleges of engineering are also located here, where majority of international students attended their lessons. By the time that I was living there, we were quite in a small number, therefore, we mostly recognized each other and quickly became like a family. Although we came from different countries and different cultures, that did not stop us from being respectful and lived in harmonious as international students in a community. Next, I moved to Dormitories D-Area when I started my major which is closer to North Campus of Wenzhou University where College of International Education and School of Business College are located. By 2018, the number of international students has increased significantly. Being independent in a foreign country, each one of us gets to be part of a community that lets us live and learn from people of different cultures. Plus, we also share ideas and perspectives as students have every opportunity to make some international connections of their own.

刚住进温州大学学生公寓时,我作为汉语言专业的学生住在南校区专家楼。温州大学南校区是行政楼的所在地。校园很大,以其美丽而闻名。理工科的学院也在这里,大部分留学生都在这里上课。我住在那里的时候,我们的人数相当少,因此,我们大多都能认出彼此,大家很快就像一家人一样。虽然我们来自不同的国家,拥有不同的文化,但这并不妨碍我们作为留学生在一个社区里相互尊重,和谐相处。接下来,我在读学历生的时候搬到了D区宿舍,这里离北校区更近,国际教育学院和商学院都在这里。到了2018年,国际学生的数量明显增加。在异国他乡独立生活,我们每个人都成为这里的一部分,能够与不同文化的人在一起生活、学习。另外,学生们完全有机会建立自己的联系,我们可以分享不同的想法和观点。

Chinese Culture and WZ Life Experience I Had During My Study

中国文化与我留学期间的温州生活经历

Living in China or Wenzhou in particular, one might not have missed the opportunity of learning the traditional cultures of China ancient. The most common are the Chinese Art Calligraphy and Paper-cutting Skill in which new students would be learning these as early as in their first semester as a freshman. In addition to these, I have the opportunities to learn more on Chinese culture. For instance, I attended a three-months Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture lessons from several traditional doctors working in the Second Affiliated Hospital in Wenzhou City. It’s incredible that one can describes your personality inside out by just checking your pulse!

生活在中国尤其是温州,你可能不会错过学习中国传统文化的机会。最常见的是中国书法和剪纸技艺,温大的留学生早在大一第一学期就会学习这些。除了这些,我还有机会学习更多的中国文化知识。例如,我参加了在温州市第二附属医院工作的几位中医指导的为期三个月的中医针灸课程。仅仅通过诊脉就能描述出你的特点,真是不可思议!

In the middle of 2018, a team of 8 students including myself were chosen as the representatives of WZU International Students to participate in the 2018 Zhejiang Province Sports-Meeting which was held in Hangzhou.  We were performing the Taiji Boxing (太极拳one of China’s martial arts) during the competition. It was an awesome experience to me!

2018年年中,包括我在内的8名学生组成的团队被选为温州大学留学生代表,参加了在杭州举行的“留动中国——在华留学生阳光运动文化之旅”活动浙江赛区选拔赛。在比赛中,我们表演的是中国武术之一的太极拳。这对我来说是一次很棒的经历。

Apart from that, in the early 2021, I got the chance to experience and learn the famous Wenzhou Ou Opera (瓯剧). I wish that more people especially the younger ones build on heritage of Ou Opera in the future.

除此之外,在2021年初,我有机会体验和学习著名的温州瓯剧。我希望以后有更多的人尤其是年轻人在传承瓯剧的基础上再接再厉。

My Feelings About Study and Living Here; My Suggestions to Students Who Study Here and for those Who Wants to Study Here in the Future

我在这里学习和生活的感受以及我对在这里学习的学生和将来想在这里学习的人的建议

My overall experience has been a very positive one. I am satisfied with my life in Wenzhou University and Wenzhou City as a whole. I have had created many beautiful memories in China and more yet to come. For the students who are currently studying here in Wenzhou University try to at least break the language barriers and learn the basic Chinese language while you are at it. Most lecturers often encourage students and support them with their academics and guide them to build their future careers.

我的总体经历是非常积极的。我对我在温州大学和温州市的留学生活感到满意。我在中国创造了许多美好的回忆,而且还有更多的回忆等待着我。对于目前在温州大学学习的学生来说,至少要尝试打破语言障碍,在专业学习的同时学习基本的中文。大多数老师都会经常鼓励我们,不仅支持我们的学业,而且还指导我们做好未来的职业生涯规划。

If I were to give a piece of advice to anyone worried about starting university abroad, it would be to get involved with things like societies as much as possible. There are so many opportunities, whether it is a new interest or something you were already involved in at your home country or previous schools.

如果要我给任何担心在国外上大学的人一个建议,那就是尽可能多地参与社团活动。那将会有很多机会,无论是发展新的兴趣爱好还是接触你在自己国家或以前的学校已经参与的事情。
