China has entered the phase where it starts to increase the quality and efficiency of the internationalization of its higher degree education. With “Chinese characteristics” principles, ECUST has followed China's education policies and grasped the trend and won a good starting in non-academic international education market. And ECUST’s efforts have been recognized by 117 international students from 31 countries.
These students in different ages with different languages, cultures and demands are gathering in this place --- ECUST. Now, they learn the same language, experience the same culture and pursue the same dream in ECUST.
These new international students are the fresh blood of ECUST. And Tian Ye, the director of Chinese Language Teaching Center in CIE, delivered a speech to welcome them at the opening ceremony. And she also introduced Shanghai, advantages of ECUST and high-quality Chinese language programs to them.
Communication between students and teachers can dissolve non-equivalence and bias.

He encouraged these fresh students to work hard and improve their Chinese so that they can win a place in the international labor market.
Passing on upperclassman’s wisdom to new recruits can harmonize their different cultures and habits.
