As educators in an increasingly global society, we realise that we need to train students to live and work in a global environment.
In light of this, as part of our internationalisation programme, DCU is delighted to have welcomed young graduates from Taiwan in order to hone their business English language skills and enhance their knowledge of business practices during their studies at Dublin City University.
Cathy Yu, DCU student, commented about her experience: “We really enjoyed the time studying online with DCU and definitely had a good time with the teachers. Thank you for your support. I hope the pandemic will end soon so that we can visit Ireland in the near future.”
Along with the business English classes, the students had the opportunity to interact with guest speakers who shared their professional experiences across different industries with them. The line-up of speakers were drawn from organisations as diverse as IBM, Linkedin, and Wix.com.
Leon Nussbaumer, Recruiter at Linkedin, added: “I was humbled by the invitation from DCU to speak to the International students from Taiwan and go through why LinkedIn is such a powerful platform. We were able to go through the basics of what a great profile looks like and talk about different strategies to showcase skillset and aspirations, critical for early in career professionals who are working to break into the market. They were super engaged, asked me a lot of questions and took all notes! I am really looking forward to seeing their achievements and career progression through LinkedIn.”
Edu Giansante, Head of Community at Wix.com and Founder of E-Dublin, also said: “I had the opportunity to share my professional experience with the students from DCU LS and it was great to see their passion and enthusiasm for the topic. They asked great questions and were really engaged in the conversation.”
DCU Language Services aims to continue fostering global connections among international students and provide them with the opportunity to enhance their English language skills.
