NTU student Ji Shuang excels in DELE B2 exam

We would like to extend a huge congratulations to our NTU student JI SHUANG on passing the DELE B2 exam in July 2015!


DELE, (Spanish for "Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language"), are official diplomas issued by the Spanish Instituto Cervantes on behalf of the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science to participants who have passed a standardised test indicating their Spanish language proficiency. The diplomas are valid permanently.

The DELE Diplomas are internationally recognized, and enjoy great prestige not only among public and private educational institutions and authorities, but also in the business world and chambers of commerce. They are ideal for furthering your career and access to education, both in Spain and in other countries where the examinations are given.

Normally, a DELE B2 (Upper Intermediate) certificate is enough for fulfilling the language requirement to be admitted to study in Spanish at universities in Spain.

Passing a DELE B2 is a great achievement for our student, JI SHUANG, who only completed three of our courses at NTU. Prior to taking the exam, Ms Cristina Gonzalez Ruiz provided her with preparatory sessions for this exam.


An exchange student at NTU won United Nations Essay contest!


One of the exchange students who studied Chinese language at NTU has been named a winner of the United Nations ‘Many Languages, One World Essay Contest”, with an essay on ‘Ensuring a healthy life and promoting well-being for all”. The contest, organized by the UN and held in New York in July 2015, challenged university students all over the world to write an essay examining UN’s post-2015 global development agenda in one of the six official languages of the UN which is not the student’s first language. Gil Young Lee, a student at NTU on exchange from Korea’s Ajou University, chose Chinese as one of his subjects, and entered the contest with the help and encouragement of his instructor Dr. Xiaoling He of the Centre for Modern Languages. It is hoped that this exceptional honor will provide an extra incentive for more students to students to learn Chinese at NTU.
