About

The School of Foreign Languages of Hubei University can trace its origin to the Department of Foreign Languages of Wuhan Normal College, with the English UG Program set up in 1973 (next to Wuhan University and the Central China Normal University in Hubei Province), and with the Japanese UG Program set up in 1993(next to Wuhan University). 2001 and 2009 saw the establishment of the French major and the Translation and Interpreting Major respectively. 2016 was marked by so big an event -- intake of the first Portuguese UG Program that is considered the only school in Central China to offer Portuguese learning with BA degree.  

Together, our School form a community that is unique in central China in its breadth and depth of foreign languages learning programs, offering an impressive array of comprehensive practical and research BA and MA courses, and our teaching staff work hard to develop our students' innovation spirit and critical thinking on a qualities-education development basis. We prepare our graduates to enter a wide variety of employment fields.

We have encouraged and supported the international cooperation and exchanges for students benefits. Wide and deep links have been set up with overseas universities and institutions in the US, the UK, Australia, France and Japan, etc. to build mutual beneficial research partnerships, teaching partnerships, studying abroad and exchange links -- The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, The University of California, Berkeley, The University of Manchester, Durham University, Lancaster University, The University of New South Wales, Waseda University, Niigata University, University of Toulouse - Jean Jaurès. We also work with our sister universities -- The University of Macau to tailor summer school programs to our Portuguese undergraduates. Some top students in our school are sent to work as volunteers annually to the US, Brazil, Poland, Thailand, etc. to provide Chinese language and culture teaching services.

With the abundant teaching and research facilities available, our School houses a total of 26 spaces of multimedia language studios, audio-visual rooms, self-learning centers and a simultaneous interpreting lab, and more than 470 sets of teaching equipment. CAT self-learning center is fitted with state-of-the-art SDL Trados Software and with English-Chinese Parallel Corpora (2 million words/sentences in size). Our interpreting booths, as the first in Central China universities, are equipped with Televic conference interpreting equipment, giving students the opportunity to train in the same kind of facilities used in the European Parliament and United Nations General Assembly and meeting the requirement of simultaneous interpreting training, conference simultaneous interpreting and assisting language teaching.

We collaborate locally well with many different organizations -- primary and high schools, technical secondary schools, Foreign Affairs (Overseas Chinese Affairs) Office of Hubei Provincial People’s Government, Hubei Provincial Museum, Revolution of 1911 Museum, Hubei Provincial Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, Wuhan Honda Trading Co., Ltd.
