Translation Course Immersion Trip Shanghai, China

During the June holidays from 29 May to 4 June, 13 Year 5 H2 Translation (Chinese) students went on a Study Immersion Trip to the top university in Shanghai, Fudan University, to learn more about the different aspects and fields of translation, and experience university life in China. The students sat in during lectures and participated in an exchange session with local students majoring in Translation Studies. The students also had a chance to stay in the International Students’ Hostel, enabling them to truly experience university and campus life.

They also had a chance to meet up with Dunmanians from the Bicultural Studies Programme (BSP) who were in Shanghai for an immersion programme as well. Singaporeans who are studying in Fudan University also met up with both groups of students and shared about university life and future career prospects. Besides having lessons, the students also went on sightseeing trips to many of Shanghai’s famous landmarks, including the Yu Garden, The Bund, Tianzifang and many more. All in all, the trip was both educational and fun, and was definitely an eye-opener for the students.

今年的六月假期,我校H2翻译课程的高一学生前往中国上海的复旦大学展开浸濡学习之旅。他们通过上课、观课和交流,进一步了解翻译领域的方方面面,并体验了在中国上大学的滋味。此外,同学们也有机会住宿在复旦的留学生公寓,真正体会大学的校园生活。

在复旦念书的新加坡学生也为翻译课程学生以及同时也在上海浸濡的双文化课程学生进行分享会,讲解了在上海读书的情况和未来事业发展等相关讯息。在学习之余,学生们也参观了上海著名的旅游景点,如豫园、外滩、田子坊等等。这次的学习浸濡之旅,学生们除了在学习上获益不浅,也同时进一步了解在上海念书的实际情况,可说是一举两得。
