The delegation firstly visited the campus and then met third-year students majoring in Spanish. Seeing these students, they felt very excited as though they came across their old friends. CEO Joaquín Espallarga and Director of the Developmet Department Juan Antonio made brief introduction to Universidad Antonio de Nebrija and to Madrid, Spain. They also showed the importance of overseas study experience in training talents in foreign languages and their advantage in intenational students exchange. Dean Prof. Pilar Alcover introduced studying in Spain to Sanda students, who had the chance to study in Spain for one year.
Students actively participated in the interaction
Third-year students working as interpreters
As one component of training international talents in the Spanish language, this joint program has been carried out for four years since 2013. Prof. CHEN Quan turned the CEO’s talk into an interpretation activity for the student audience. This tradition has been followed since the founding of the Spanish Department, with the aim to train students’ practical skills and conscientious working attitude. After the interaction activity, pictures were taken for the visiting guests and Sanda teachers and students.

Afterwards, a talk was held between the guests and Sanda leaders. They both acknowledged the impressive achievement they’d made and also reached consensus in communication and cooperation deepening. The Spanish Department has been adhering to the principle of training advanced, applied and internationalized talents and has achieved its goals. Cooperation with Universidad Antonio de Nebrija contributes to the Sino-foreign cooperative education mode and also to Sanda’s path to internationalized education. (GAO ZhihanThe Spanish Department)
