On June 17, 2011, a ceremony was held in Nanjing University to celebrate the completion of English training classes for JAAS scientists. After training, JAAS scientists improved their conversational skills in the form of different artistic performances, including English chorus, comic sketches, poem reading and word puzzles. In the end, the class read prose together to express their sincere thanks.
During the ceremony, Deputy Secretary Lu Xiaoxi of JAAS Party Committee expressed her gratitude on behalf on JAAS to the directors and professors of Nanjing University. She also congratulated the JAAS scientists on their progress in English, spoke highly of their diligence and encouraged them to make more contributions to agriculture, farmers and the countryside.
Secretary Wang Yujue of the School of Foreign Languages of Nanjing University (SFLNU) was impressed by the performance given by JAAS scientists. He praised their positive attitude for English leraning.
The directors of JAAS and Nanjing University issued course-completion certificate to the training class and the scientists all felt reluctant to part despite the end of the training course. In the near future, ten of these scientists will carry out curriculum studies and cooperative research for one year in Mississippi State University. Wish them a compete success!
