Shi Youqi welcomed Péter Várfi and his delegation, and also introduced the teaching situation, teaching characteristics, and discipline construction of the school’s Hungarian program. According to Shi, with the profound China-Hungary friendship and the deepening cooperation between the two countries in fields like economics and education, Hungarian personnel will be more needed in the coming years. Therefore, the university plans to add a Hungarian major in 2023, one aimed at training innovative bilingual talents in both English and Hungarian. Besides, attaching great importance to collaborating with Hungarian universities, GDUFS has signed an intercollegiate cooperation agreement with the University of Pécs. Shi hopes this meeting can considerably motivate communication and extend cooperation in each area between GDUFS and Hungarian universities.
Péter Várfi showed his appreciation for the progress of the discipline construction of Hungarian in our school. He pointed out that the China-Hungary relationship has grown increasingly close since the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries. He also expects to strengthen cooperation with our school, support the building of the Hungarian major, jointly promote the high-quality development of China-Hungary cooperation in education, and gain more pragmatic results.
Relevant personnel from the International Office and Faculty of European Languages and Cultures attended the meeting as well. After that, the Consul General and his delegation visited the history museum of GDUFS and exchanged ideas with teachers in the Faculty of European Languages and Cultures.
