    15:32 Author:alpha

    Twitter is abuzz with news that some Thai students have successfully returned to China after almost two years of being locked out. China International Student Union (CISU) tweeted that a group of approved students on the Thai government list have reportedly been granted entry to Shanghai. At the time of writing, there have been no official announcements made by the Chinese authorities on the matter. “We have received some reliable information that students from Thailand have arrived in Shanghai and are in quarantine,” tweeted CISU. “They are not able to speak out publicly for obvious reasons.” CISU is an independent representative body of international students enrolled at universities and institutions in China. Chinese Ambassador to Thailand Han Zhiqiang indicated last October that Thai students would be among the first to return to China. “If the Chinese government is ready to allow hundreds of thousands of international students to return, Thai students will be among the first,” he was quoted saying by the Bangkok Post. He added that the embassy has been in talks with Chinese agencies in charge of COVID-19 prevention measures along with education authorities in China in regards to the matter.

  • Blind Int’l student shares what challenges of online class

    20:26 Author:alpha

    For Celine Lean Yew-lin, taking law classes online at the University of Cambridge requires almost superhuman multitasking: jotting notes as she listens to the teacher, checking that she is working on the correct document, and finding the unmute button when she wants to speak. Lean, a blind 23-year-old Malaysian student at Cambridge University’s law school, lost her vision at the age of four after a battle with leukaemia. The cancer and her chemotherapy treatments resulted in her retina – a thin layer of tissue at the back of the eye – detaching. While some visually impaired people can see some colours, Lean cannot see anything at all. “I’m as blind as you can get,” she said. She relies on her other senses – hearing, touchin g and smelling to navigate her surroundings and develop spatial awareness. She uses echolocation, which is a way to detect objects by making sounds and sensing the echoes. Lean has overcome countless obstacles and now attends one of the world’s most prestigious law schools, but it was not an easy journey. Celine Lean has received a full scholarship from the Yayasan Khazanah foundation for her studies at the University of Cambridge. Photo: Shutterstock Growing up…Original link

So, he decided to teach himself those advanced maths concepts and to be precise, the ones we learn at colleges and universities. One of his teachers, Mr. Feng Tianfang, said that Cheng studies hard and plays hard. He added that Cheng was on the class' sports team and plays the piano very well. △ Cheng Dazhuo helping a classmate solve problems encountered during a physics experiment △ Li Xuanyou Li Xuanyou is adept at mathematics and is…

Fascinated by its development, she decided to pursue her higher studies here and deepen her understanding of China.Currently, she is a graduate student in the Institute of Education at Tsinghua University.To learn more about China, Tamar actively participated in several educational, cultural, and sports activities during her first year. One such activity was a cultural tour that took her to Shandong and Hubei Provinces, where she gained first-hand knowledge about China’s culture and history.“In the last few decades, China has been actively advancing, especially in developing its economy, infrastructure, and technology. As a result, China has already become a leading country in the world. However, what has impressed me most about China’s development is that it doesn’t forget its culture and tradition despite its innovations and growth,” she says. She lauds the Communist Party of China (CPC) for leading China’s rapid development. Under the leadership of the CPC and with the amazing power of the Chinese people, the country will reach even more remarkable successes, she says.Original link
