International Feedback

My name is NGUYEN LAN PHUONG from VietNam. Two years passed and I was a graduate student at China university of geosciences(WuHan).The school is among the top universities in china. It’s very convenient in the school, there are supermarkets, Banks, canteens, gym…The environment is suitable for students to study and live. I started at this university to do Chinese language, there are teachers and classmates who help me improve my Chinese very quickly. Then I am studying in my major Environmental Science and Engineering. I'm always study with my Chinese classmates .My Chinese classmates are very enthusiastic to help me explain all the courses I don't understand. In addition to the teacher's lectures, the teacher also gives students a good environment to do experiments so that each student knows the major better. I love my school and my teachers and friends more.
