Since NENU was under the static management, 14 live-on-campus faculty and staff and 183 faculty members working from home of the School of Foreign Languages have actively contributed their efforts to the NENU’s fight against the epidemic. Recently, in order to lead the students from the School of Foreign Languages to express their positive energy in static management, the School of Foreign Languages has launched a series of exhibition activities on the theme of “Thanks to NENU and Teachers: Words to you”
A total of nine videos were produced in this activity. Under the inspiration and influence of the school and teachers, more than 100 students of the school participated in this activity in various kinds of forms like warm words, original singing, original paintings, silent sign language, and volunteer services to express their deep gratitude to NENU, to all the leaders, teachers, and logistics service staff for their unselfish dedication.
Fu Liying, a 2021 graduate student majoring in English Interpretation, said: “Thank you, all the teachers who protected us, and thank you for your hard work: I would like to thank the teachers who are quarantined at home but prepared the classes meticulously and taught us carefully, so that we can have a good class experience; I would like to thank the live-on-campus teachers who leave behind their own homes but work in school for everyone. Thank you for your dedication, so that our study and life have been very well guaranteed. You also provided great encouragement to our spirit, so that we have a very happy life....”
Zhao Xiaoshuang, a 2021 graduate student majoring in Russian language and literature, said: “I am very grateful to the teachers for ensuring that we can study safely on campus since the epidemic. During this time, I also have more time to calm down and think, read literature, write reviews, practice translation, and conduct some volunteer services for students every day....”.
Wang Han, a 2021 graduate student majoring in Japanese language and literature, said: “Although there are no take-out and snacks during this period, I can enjoy the food made by the canteen; although I can’t enjoy flowers in a spring outing, I have gained close friendship in the dormitory; although I can’t communicate with teachers face-to-face, I could feel the care and support of the teachers and volunteers. It is precisely because of the strong guarantee of the school that we don’t need to worry about food and accommodation. I believe that there is no winter that cannot come to its end, and there is no spring that cannot come up. We are united to look forward to the day when life will return to normal....”.
Zhao Qizhou, a 2020 graduate student majoring in English Interpretation, said: “The epidemic is a big test, which tests the character and resilience of each of us. Although we are far away from our hometown and our parents, teachers in NENU have tried their best to give us the greatest care, whether it is the counselors and teachers who provide us with daily necessities day and night, or the teachers who nourish our minds online. We will keep in mind the entrustments, complete the learning tasks in school seriously, and fully cooperate with NENU’s various work on epidemic prevention.…”
Tang Shuo, a 2019 graduate student majoring in Linguistics, said: “Since the epidemic, from the leaders and teachers of NENU, to the hard-working volunteers and every classmate around us, everyone has been fully cooperating and obeying the arrangements. I believe we will be able to overcome the epidemic.…”
The 2021 undergraduates said with original paintings and warm words: “Since the dorm was closed, the teachers of the whole school have been working hard to meet our needs for food, clothing, housing and transportation. You are the heroes in harm’s way and the guardians of lights. We will eventually win the battle against the epidemic. NENU will win! …”
The 2020 undergraduates said: “In the NENU under static management, we are well protected by the teachers. Even in the cold March, we feel the temperature of being loved. We hope that it is not just spring that will come as promised as well as us safe and sound....”
The 2019 undergraduates and 2018 undergraduates expressed their gratitude to the school and teachers with the singing of “Spring Blossoms” and the silent sign language and singing of “Thank You”.
