The Institute for Foreign Language Research and Education was founded in April 2004. Its aim is the provision of effective foreign language education across the university, including undergraduate students, graduate students, administrative staff and teachers. We are involved in curriculum design, innovation, and management in foreign language education with a view to nurturing learners’ foreign language abilities so that they can operate as advanced international researchers and staff. In order to provide learners with effective language instruction, CALL facilities have been fully equipped, and a professional atmosphere has been created for students through good classroom practice, management and administration. In addition, a well-organized system for self-study has been established with the development and distribution of e-learning materials.
