Students from Hunan Vocational Institute of Technology Won Two Third-Prize Awards in Hunan Provincial Final of 2018 “FLTRP Cup” English Reading Contest
On November 3, 2018, Hunan Provincial Final of 2018 “FLTRP Cup” English Reading Contest was held in Central South University of Forestry and Technology. Through the teachers’ recommendation and the instructor group’s selection, two students from our school, Zhang Qiaohan and Xiao Yao, participated in the contest. Eventually, both of them won the Third-Prize award in the fierce competition with nearly 200 students selected from 71colleges and universities in the province.
“FLTRP Cup” English Reading Contest is a high-level competition jointly organized by Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press (commonly abbreviated as FLTRP), College Foreign Language Teaching Advisory Board under the Ministry of Education, ELA Advisory Board under the Ministry of Education and the China Language Assessment. “FLTRP Cup” English Reading Contest, “FLTRP Cup” English Public Speaking Contest, and “FLTRP Cup” English Writing Contest constitute the UChallenge.
The Public Course Department will take the contest as an opportunity to further improve students’ English applying ability and speed up the reformation of curriculum and teaching in English. And we try to seek the solution to the general problem that the English level of vocational college students, especially the vocational colleges of science and engineering, is generally on the low side, which is difficult to meet and adapt to the requirements of today's international society and posts. Therefore, we will do our best to contribute to the targets of our school, namely “the Four First-class” (the first-class faculty, the first-class application-oriented graduates, the first-class education environment and the first-class internal governance mechanisms) and “the Model of Industry-education integration and the Sample of Development and Reform in Hunan”.
