Teachers and students from HUST are playing an increasingly important role in foreign language competitions, conferences, and interpretation works, both in Heilongjiang Province and even in the whole country, a phenomenon which indicates the adherence to the principle that “undergraduate education is the most fundamental”, and also demonstrates the achievements of long-term teaching reform made by School of Foreign Languages.
