An exchange student at NTU won United Nations Essay contest!
One of the exchange students who studied Chinese language at NTU has been named a winner of the United Nations ‘Many Languages, One World Essay Contest”, with an essay on ‘Ensuring a healthy life and promoting well-being for all”. The contest, organized by the UN and held in New York in July 2015, challenged university students all over the world to write an essay examining UN’s post-2015 global development agenda in one of the six official languages of the UN which is not the student’s first language. Gil Young Lee, a student at NTU on exchange from Korea’s Ajou University, chose Chinese as one of his subjects, and entered the contest with the help and encouragement of his instructor Dr. Xiaoling He of the Centre for Modern Languages. It is hoped that this exceptional honor will provide an extra incentive for more students to students to learn Chinese at NTU.
