Successful China tour for USP Lautoka students

Two local students from the University of the South Pacific Lautoka campus had a very successful month long attachment at renowned universities in China recently.

Archana Pritika was attached to the Beijing Language and Cultural University from December 21, 2016 to January 17 this year while Mere Vuda was accommodated by the North China Electric Power University (NCEPU) from November 30 to December 30, 2016.

Both students are enrolled with the USP Lautoka campus learning the Chinese Language provided by the Confusion Institute.

As part of the month long scholarship to learn the Chinese language and culture in China both Pritika and Vuda had all their expenses paid by the Chinese Government.

An elated Vuda thanked USP and the Confucius Institute for giving her the opportunity to visit the country with the world’s fastest growing economy.

She revealed that her more than four weeks attachment with NCEPU was a great learning experience.

She informed that visiting China was not just a normal overseas trip for her but one where she has properly learned the true essence for hard work towards your studies.

“While at the university I have found out how hardworking the Chinese students are and how serious they are about their studies.

“Amazingly the Chinese never leave their studies for tomorrow and make full use of any present day to be well ahead in their studies.

“China is really a land of opportunities and during my short visit I have definitely learned a lot which will be very useful for my own future,” Vuda stated.

According to Pritika who has been studying Chinese language at USP Lautoka campus for the last two years the best thing she learnt in China was the importance of time and punctuality.

“Unlike here in Fiji where students have a tendency of reaching their classes 10 or 15 minutes late, in China students have to be in their class on time.

“The tutors or lecturers start classes at the scheduled time without any delay and it becomes the responsibility of the students to be present before time to avoid missing any of your lessons.

“The Chinese people are surely one of the most hardworking people in the entire world and I am very glad to have been given the opportunity to visit this remarkable country and learn so many important things about life,” Pritika added.
