美國華裔教授學者協會在加州理工學院隆重開幕 諾貝爾醫學獎得主巴爾迪摩教授演說

︻記者孫衛赤帕沙迪納市報導︼以﹁中美合作互動-在科技前沿領域﹂為主題的美國華裔教授學者協會(CSA)2006年會於114日在加州理工學院隆重開幕﹐諾貝爾生理/醫學獎得主? 加州理工學院教授巴爾迪摩(David Baltimore)和中國駐洛杉磯總領事鍾建華為大會致詞。當天﹐華裔教授們在工程,醫學,計算機和人文等領域進行了分組專題發言。

會長姜鎮英在介紹年會的情況時表示﹐這是美國華裔教授學者協會的第8次年會﹐200多名來自南加各校的華裔教授及會員與會﹐中國大陸高等教育出版社等教育機構還專門派員與會。這屆年會的3個突出特點是﹐1975年諾貝爾獎得主巴爾迪摩與會﹔專題講座及到的學科廣泛並包括了實施中國教育部春暉計劃的內容﹔包括在校學生在內的與會者踴躍。加州理工學院學生學者聯誼會協辦了這屆年會。

應邀與會的清華北美教育基金會會長張素久表示﹐美國華裔教授學者協會為促進美中之間的科學技術及教育方面的合作與交流﹐做出了貢獻。她特別提到﹐諾貝爾獎得主巴爾迪摩的與會非常重要﹐讓華裔教授學者有更多的機會與諾貝爾獎得主進行溝通﹐這有促進作用。她回憶到﹐巴爾迪摩曾在2000年去北京參加清華大學後基因組研究所的成立活動並演講﹐巴爾迪正是因為研究病毒的基因機製而獲得諾貝爾獎的。張素久也表示﹐巴爾迪摩的太太愛麗絲.黃是完全中國血統,會說國語的華裔﹐這有助於巴爾迪摩對中國的了解。

在當天分組活動中進行專題發言的有加州理工學院侯一釗教授(多尺度分析和模擬﹕數學理論和工程應用的相互促進)?加州大學洛杉磯分校吳虹教授(癌症研究﹣從實驗到病床邊), 加州州立波莫納工藝大學賈旭東教授 (交通監控系統), 加州州大學北嶺分校中國金融及商業研究中心主任陳超 (民營化, 公司治理, 與中國資本市場發展), 加州大學洛杉磯分校許凱莉教授(在美國教授中文及如何獲得教師資格)及由加州大學河濱分校吳勞生教授和李百練教授介紹海外學者如何更好使用中國教育部春暉計劃等。

 

 

姜镇英代表全体华裔教授学者协会理事会在2006CSA年会上的发言(加州理工学院11/4

 

Ambassador Zhong Jianhua

Dr. David Baltimore and Dr. Alice Huang

Ladies and gentlemen

 

Welcome to the Chinese Scholars Association 2006 Convention.

 

We are honored to have such a distinguished group of honorary members gathered here this evening. Again, I want to recognize: Ambassador Zhong, Dr. Baltimore, and Dr. Alice Huang along with CSSA-president Li Bo and a host of our accomplished professors and professionals gathered here tonight. On behalf of all the directors of CSA board, I would also like to express our deep appreciation to Ms. Sue Zhang, Mr. Mark Li, Dr. Richard Lee, Mr. Evans Lam, Prof. Liu Yi, Mr. Carl Cheng and Mrs Wang Lizhen. Thank you all sincerely. Without your strong support and great encouragement, we would not have the measure of success that we enjoy today.

 

As you know, the CSA was established 8 years ago, by a handful of scholars who shared a great enthusiasm for the work of Chinese American professors and professionals. Our past board presidents, Dr. She Zhensu, Dr. Kwan Ming Chan, Dr. Lin Lianlian along with all the board directors, envisioned three common goals: to weave a spiritual link for Chinese American scholars and professors; to deliver the latest information of Chinese science studies and higher education to all of our members; and to foster cultural and friendly communication to cross natural borders.

 

What has occurred with CSA in those 8 years is remarkable. Beginning with a fledgling group of scholarly professors it has grown into a well recognized professional organization.

 

This year, we have 24 outstanding scholars become our new lifetime members. We have also received numerous papers for our journal from the professors and professionals in both United States and China. We are glad to tell you that our E-version <<Academic Perspective>> was published and released online just before this convention. The overall positive feedback from our 3,000 readers is overwhelming.

 

We sincerely wish more scholars and professors would join in us and would submit new work & findings in the next year, since that would be really a good opportunity for you and for CSA to present our expertise and resources not only to our members but also to the scholars and professionals in both the USA, China and the rest of world.

 

The concern and expectation of Chinese American scholars and professionals have been our greatest drive to advance. It is my belief that all of our CSA board members and esteemed leaders will work even harder to make our organization the best of its kind in the years to come.

 

Thank you.

增加學朮討論 介紹研究成果   
南加華裔教授年會 鍾建華祝賀   

Sing-Tao USA包承柯怕沙迪納市報道

南加州華裔教授學者協會2006年的年會,4日在加州理工學院舉行,並舉辦科技前沿領域的學術討論會,該校前校長、諾貝爾醫學獎得主David Baltimore、以及中國駐洛杉磯總領事鍾建華等人都到会祝贺。

身為華人女婿的David Baltimore,在1975年獲得諾貝爾醫學獎時只有37歲。他當天在年會中曾就當前生物科技的研究與發展發表專題演講,介紹自他獲得諾貝爾獎以來的生物科技最新發展,指出基因組研究對現代醫學科學的發展攸關重大,將是未來生物科技研究的主要領域,還說現在美國各大學的醫學研究也很重視幹細胞的研究,這些研究的新的成果,將可為醫學科學的研究帶來突破性進展。

鍾建華對華裔教授學者協會年會的召開表示祝賀,推崇該會近年所辦各種活動的成就,期許該會成員繼續推動中美科技合作。

協會會長姜鎮英表示,同往年不同的是,今年的年會增加學術討論會,邀請多位學有成就的華裔教授和學者,介紹他們的研究成果。該會是在八年前成立,原來的年會只是一些娛樂性和社交性的場合,由於華裔教授中研究有成的學者很多,該會因而決定透過舉辦學術討論會,讓與會者可以交流溝通,從而知道其他學科領域中的最新發展。

整個學術報告會分科學組和社會科學組兩大類,在科學組中,由洛杉磯加大(UCLA )藥理學教授吳虹介紹癌症研究的最新成果。她根據最新研究成果表示,癌症是人體基因突變引起的,例如日照過多,容易引起皮膚癌,抽煙過多易引起患肺癌。她還認為,另有一部分的癌症是由遺傳基因引起的。

該校電腦學係主任叢京生則介紹美國、中國和台灣三地7所大學,就「千兆級系統集成芯片設計」的共同研究,他說,這個項目現在正由加大洛杉磯分校、聖塔芭芭拉分校、北京大學、清華大學、浙江大學、以及台灣的清華大學、交通大學共同合作研究中,迄至目前為止究已經進行了5年,不少成果已經被業界生產成產品,帶來巨大經濟效益。他說,現在超大型集成電路的自動化設計,已經從二維電路發展成三維電路,集成電路的運算速度因而大幅度提高。

出席年會的貴賓包括清華北美教育基金會理事長張素久、美諾醫療集團公司總裁粟亞、花旗金融集團所羅門金融投資公司副總裁林日昇、著名華裔電視節目主持人卓蕾和美中企業家商會會長孫文鐵等人在內,共有近200人。

首个"创业风险基金" 浦东新区巨资扶持高新企业

  浦东新区政府投资10亿元,这是一笔特殊的资金:创业风险投资基金。据悉,浦东新区1021日启动国内首个政府创业风险引导基金,目前政府率先投资10亿元,专门推动一批有潜力的中小型高新技术企业的发展,预计十一五期间该基金规模将达到200亿元,具体细则尚在落实中。

 

  目前国内约有2000多家中小型高成长科技企业,企业,它们发展速度极快,由于利润空间较大,大多数企业都在海外上市。浦东新区政府财政拨款10亿元,主要就是引导一批具有一定发展前景的高新科技企业,这好比是一块吸铁石,今后将吸引更多的社会资金进来,形成一个庞大的投资

基金系统。 创业风险投资基金是一笔面向中小型高新技术产业的救济基金,当然被救济的这些企业必须具有一定的开发前景,属于潜力股,通过资本运作后,成功帮助这些企业上市,投资方将从中获得一定的收益。

 

  张江正成为创业风险资本投资重地 张江已经是中国的硅谷,集聚了一大批中青年科技人才,这成为国内外创业风险资本瞄准的投资重地 去年,浦东新区将创业风险投资体制纳入综合配套改革试点,并在张江建设了创业风险投资广场,引入了IDGSoftbank等一批国际知名风险投资公司。浦东新区开放近10年间,高新技术企业从53家增加到498家,高新技术产业值翻了四番,去年突破1600亿元。

中国"土地出让金"新规将出炉 城镇土地使用税将提高两倍

 

土地出让金将不再是地方政府的小金库。消息显示,《土地出让金收支管理办法》(草案)(以下简称《办法》)已基本修订完成,待国务院审批后,不久可正式下发。《办法》明确土地出让金将实行收支两条线,并接受地方人大的监督。 《办法》初步规定建设用地城镇土地使用税提高两倍,新增建设用地有偿使用费和耕地占用税各提高一倍;土地出让金总额的15%必须用于农地复垦和土地整理开发,而此前只要求把土地出让金增值部分的15%做此用途。同时,土地出让金将全额纳入地方财政预算,实行收支两条线,并接受地方人大的监督。

 

  值得注意的是,以上三项税费,耕地占用税及城镇土地使用税直接针对开发商,而新增建设用地土地有偿使用费则针对地方政府。2005年各地区间为吸引招商引资,采取各种手段竞相压低地价使得全国新增建设用地使用费流失严重。中国被征地农民补偿标准偏低, 而各地盲目扩大城市建设规模的现象很广泛。中原地产相关分析师认为,国家提高了以上三项税收的标准,有利于加大城市规模扩张的经济约束,同时确保被征地农民原有生活水平不降低。

 

  土地出让金收支两条线的规定将会在《办法》中得到明确,这将在很大程度上从源头上规避很多问题。一些地方政府为获取土地出让金收入而盲目扩大城市规模、盲目加大旧城改造力度;招商引资恶性竞争,竞相压低地价;拖欠、挪用农民征地费;一些地方擅自挪用土地出让金,大量透支未来土地收益。业内专家认为,这些问题的产生,其主要原因就是国有土地出让收支管理不规范,不少地方国有土地出让收入和支出没有纳入财政预算,脱离了地方人民代表大会及其常委会的审议和监督。 不过,房价是否在土地出让金新规出炉后出现水涨船高局面?地产分析师指出,增加土地使用税及耕地占用税标准势必会提高土地出让金费用,但其增加幅度占土地价格比例微不足道。

想要成功申请美国名校必须要掌握6大关键

  美国北达卡他州立大学国际招生部主任Lissa Hauck来杭州招生面试,和浙江学生面对面咨询。据Lissa博士介绍,学校此次是面向浙江进行本硕招生。他说,SAT虽然相当于美国的高考,但对中国学生来说,SAT并非必备条件。 2005年春季以来,在美国留学政策的大幅度放宽和美国政府、使领馆积极推动下,赴美留学成为中国家长和学生最关心和关注的话题 ……

 

 拿SAT高分不易

SAT是美国高中生进入美国大学需要参加的考试,但国内学生想通过参加这些考试来申请美国名校,并不是一件轻松的事。目前New SAT I包括数学、英语和写作各800分,满分为2400分。SAT考试内容比较多,如SAT I,考试总共是3小时45 分钟,考试内容涵盖数学、英语、写作三方面,题量大,参加者除了要熟练掌握各专业英语词汇外,还要重点理解和掌握解题技巧及方法,尤其是写作方面难度较高。

 

  其次SAT在评分上也与国内有很大的区别。以数学为例,数学的考试是60 分钟,55道题。实际上要求考生一分钟答对一道题,答对一道题你得一分,如果全部答对,55分,经过平均的换算你的数学就是800分。但是你答错一道题,要倒扣三分,这对学生做题的精确度要求相当高。

 

  精力用到语言提高上

  SAT目前在中国尚未普及,只有少数地区设有考点,对于国内忙于高考的中学生来说,要考取1800分以上的良好成绩是需要花费一定精力的。假如SAT成绩不好被记录在案,反可能影响日后的申请。由于SAT考试是美国大学针对美国本土学生的考试,所以一般美国大学都会考虑到中国学生的现实条件,并不一定要求学生提供SAT成绩。因此,目前绝大多数美国大学包括众多名校均无需SAT成绩亦可申请。他建议学生把精力投入到语言能力的提高上,多参加一些社会实践活动,发展特长兴趣,增加申请竞争优势。各名校招生负责人表示,学校在挑选中国留学生时,不会参考学生高考成绩是否优异,而是根据他中学阶段的学习情况、社会实践能力等方面综合考虑……

国际航协停发中国国内纸质客票 机票价格有望进一步下调

 

 20061016日起,国际航协将停止向全国所有代理商发放国内纸质客票,此举预示着中国民航机票电子化进程又向前大大迈进了一步。专家表示,随着这次电子客票的大面积普及,国内机票票价有望进一步下调。

 

  婴儿仍可使用纸质机票,各代理点在1013日接到国际航协的正式通知———从今年1016日起国际航协将停止发放BSP国内纸质客票。同时通知规定,针对三种情况,仍可继续使用部分国内纸质客票:第一种是婴儿票、伤残军人等客票;第二种是因机场暂时的技术问题仍需使用纸质客票的部分城市,如:井冈山、林芝、邦达、满洲里、牡丹江、佳木斯、思茅和西双版纳等城市;第三种是航空公司总部向国际航协发出书面通知,需要继续发放部分纸质客票。

 

这次通知停止发放的只是国内纸质机票,国际纸质机票不受影响,同时旅客已在各机票代理点已经领取的纸质机票仍将有效。 明年底国内实现机票无纸化, 虽然今天起代理点已无纸质机票发售,但是为了为方便部分消费习惯还没有改变的消费者,在机票全面电子化之前的过渡期内,航空公司的直属售票处仍有电子和纸质两种机票可供消费者选择。

 

  数据显示,自200491日起,电子客票陆续在全国各地使用,销售量从最初的每年几百万张迅速攀升至2005年的2000万张,占全行业客票销售的20%左右。东航预计今年年底的电子客票将占总销售量的50%。按照时间表,到2007年底,国内将全面实现机票无纸化

Chinese Historical Society presenting “Da Vinci Code” of the Ancient Kong Chow Temple

- A discussion on the spirit of the pioneers” (11/12/06) By Kwan Ming Chan and Karen Chan

http://www.chssc.org/index.shtml

 

Los Angeles is a major port of entry for the early immigrants from the province of Guangdong. Most of them were from Wu Yi or Kong Chow districts. The name of Kong Chow was chosen by the Great Qin and Sui Dynasties to cover the Pearl River Estuary region. Theses pioneers were called Uncle Golden Mountain in their homeland.

 

After the immigrants have settled down in the new homeland, most people had solved their needs for food and shelter. However, their hearts and soul were still unsettled. They were unable to voice their concerns due to language difficulties and their heart-ached feeling was compounded daily. The best solution for them was to beg for mercy from their gods. The Kong Chow Temple has become their safe harbor and solid support.

 

The history of the temple can be traced back to 1892, which is more than 114 years ago. In the temple there are many cultural artifacts and objects, which reveal the secrets of success and overcoming the “glass ceiling”.

 

The recent picture “Da Vinci Code” has many interesting scripts about mysteries, fortune, power struggles, etc. Similarly, when you visit the temple, you will discover the true “Spirit” of the pioneers of Kong Chow and their version of meaningful codes, which they wanted to pass to the future generations, including yourself.

 

The talk and the slide presentation will be bilingual, both in English and Chinese so as to benefit a wider range of audience. Either old or young, newly arrivals or long term residents are welcome. It will be rated as “excellent” for those, who still have an inquisitive mind to our history.

 

岡州古廟的密碼” - 早期远赴重洋华裔的心灵及精神支柱

陈鈞銘 勒公玫 (11/12/06)

 

洛杉机是美国西海岸的早期華人定居的主要城市。他們主要来自闽粤两省,尤其是廣東的古岡州地区:包括新会,鹤山,台山(或新寧),开平,恩平五邑的百姓。他们因海運影响,对外接觸频繁。最多人经香港及澳门顺利抵達太平洋彼岸。据说秦始皇帝南征及隋朝时,命名新会一带为岡州. 他們自稱是岡州人. 但回鄉时,大家都尊称他們做金山伯金山阿姆”.

 

华人移居海外虽然解决了温飽问题,但他们心繫祖国,惦記亲人,盼望团聚的願望却与日俱增。許多时候,他们都感到求助無門。加上语言隔膜,内心痛苦,無时不巳!只好祈求上蒼,许愿神灵,尋求庇护。岡州古廟也就成为了游子心灵和精神的支柱。同時也是他们的避風港 後援场所薪火相傳之寶地.

 

古廟的历史可远朔至公元1892年。迄今巳有114年了。古廟文物很多.處處顯示早期移民的心靈和精神支柱.

 

電影達芬奇的密碼有巧妙的劇情如爭權,謀利,宗教紛爭.相比岡州古廟亦不乏引人入勝,借喻暗示的詞語,更有詩歌寄意,為後輩提供打破天花板,成功致富的秘訣.

 

講座以中英雙語演譯.適合對華裔歷史有興趣研究的人士.老少咸宜,無論新知舊雨,一律歡迎.

UTD開辦孔子學院 志在必得 決心把人文學院辦成北德州中國文化研究中心

World-Journal 達拉斯】德州大學達拉斯分校(UTD)31日正式提交申請在該校開辦孔子學院。為加強雙方合作,UTD的中國夥伴三峽大學日前派代表團訪達城。 經過半年多的籌備,UTD決定正式申辦孔子學院,並由來訪的三峽大學國際文化交流學院院長田祥斌、體育學院院長王炳華等31日親自前往中國駐休士頓總領事館,遞交申請給教育組組長查衛平。

 

UTD申辦孔子學院一事,在該校華裔副校長馮達旋的發起和推動下進展迅速。中國教育部副部長吳啟迪5月初訪問該校時,馮達旋曾表達設立孔子學院的意願。一旦申辦成功,三峽大學將在北京國家漢辦的資助下選派有經驗的中文教授前來UTD講學,並負責聯系學生交換、協助擴展對外交往活動。馮達旋對申辦孔子學院志在必得,認為此舉對不僅對德大,而且對達福地區意義深遠。UTD決心藉此把人文學院辦成北德州中國文化研究中心。作為設立孔子學院的要求,UTD正在招聘兩名中國語言和歷史教授。

 

該校人文學院院長克拉茲 (Denis Kratz)表示,將進一步擴大UTD翻譯研究中心中、英文學互譯項目,開設AP中文培訓科目。克羅亞洲藝術博物館且將和UTD合作開展中國文化系列活動。UTD申辦孔子學院的計畫除了在達拉斯僑社獲得熱烈反應,李察遜市長史勒格、克羅亞洲藝術博物館館長霍夫蘭等獲悉後,已經表示對德大達拉斯分校設立孔子學院支持。該校翻譯研究中心主任舒爾特 (Rainer Schulte)表示,明年適逢該中心成立30周年,將舉辦國際翻譯研討會,邀請中國和各國翻譯家共聚一堂,探討翻譯的現狀及發展。http://www.chssc.org/index.shtml

Message from Feng, Da H [fengd@utdallas.edu]

 

Dear colleagues

 

From Nov 15-16, Shanghai Association of Science and Technology, together with Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering, will organize an “Academicians Round Table” discussion in the enormous Shanghai Science Auditorium.  The event is expected to attract about 800 major scientific and technological policy makers of this vast nation.

 

The Theme of the discussion is

 

“Constructing An Innovative Nation and Workforce”

创新人才与创新型国家建设

 

My colleague Professor Alan G. MacDiarmid at UT Dallas (Nobel laureate 2000), myself, will be joining the following outstanding individuals for this panel discussion.  They are

 

Academician Wenqin Shen, Deputy Director of the National Natural Science Foundation of China,

 

Academician Fujia Yang, President of Nottingham University Ningbo, China, Chancellor of Nottingham University (UK) and former President of Fudan University,

 

Academician Qingshi Zhu, President of China University of Science and Technology (from Hefi, Anhui province)

 

Academician Yongfu Sun, member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and former Vice Minister of Chinese Ministry of Railways

 

While in Shanghai, we will also be visiting two important technological advancements of this ultra fast growing city:

 

Shanghai's flashy new Maglev (or magnetic levitated train), the world's fastest train which connects Pudong International Airport with Pudong city http://www.gluckman.com/Maglev.html

 

And Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility http://www.sinap.ac.cn/moban.asp?x=2&y=1

 

In this election year, we are all reminded of the slogan from the former speaker of the House Tip O’Neill that “All Politics are Local.”  In this spirit, I would be remiss if I did not mention something that has local (Metroplex) connection.  Indeed, one of the scientists who had the vision, the tenacity and the political strengths to push forth the SSRF project to be housed in Shanghai (and not somewhere else in China) is Professor Fujia Yang.

 

I am proud to say that FJY was for the past six years a member of UT Dallas Research Advisory Board.

 

Perhaps what is profound about SSRF is that half of the funding of this magnificent research facility (approximately 1.3 Billion RMB ($160 Million US, but in terms of buying power, it is probably closer to $1 Billion), in which new material sciences will be created and investigated, was half funded by the municipal government of Shanghai.  This is another manifestation of how this exciting city in the 21st century wanting not only to be a global financial center, but also a global center for science and technology.

中国教育部正酝酿高校改革 教授不上讲台可能被摘帽 (胡力丰、徐 美)

 

教育部高教司司长、清华大学教授张尧学7 日在长沙理工大学做了题为《中国高等教育的改革与发展》的报告。张尧学透露,为提高高等教育质量,推动教授上讲台,教育部正在酝酿相关改革措施,教授要拿出相当精力来教授基础课,一定时间不上讲台就摘帽子,年轻教师则偏向于科研。

 

  张尧学表示,目前,中国高等教育发展的核心指导思想是提高质量。名师出高徒,提高高教质量,师资队伍无疑是重要一环。不可否认,高校里有像孟二冬式的好教师,但如果以较为传统的标准来衡量,一些教师的职业、道德水准在下滑:学术造假、不好好上课的还是有不少;一些老师不是扎扎实实地搞科研,而是想靠科研来多挣点钱。

 

  张尧学表示,教育部在积极推动教授上讲台的同时,正在酝酿出台系列的配套措施。譬如,今后可能只有教授(副教授)上讲台(主要针对基础课),而且工作重心偏向教学,不上讲台的摘帽子,同时可能借鉴美国等国家做法,大学教授也搞年薪制,封顶,将其在争取来的科研项目的提成控制在一定的比例内,只有科研成果申请专利并转化才能得到可观回报。而年轻的大学老师做助教、辅导员,重心主要在科研。同时成立一些教学团队,由教授、助教、辅导员等构成,协调好科研与教学的关系。

 

  提高质量,张尧学认为大学生着重要培养三种能力。首先是创新能力。张尧学认为,创新能力是把一件事情做到尽善尽美的一种追求。所有的学习过程都应该是找出问题、抽象问题、解决问题的过程,这是一个创新的过程。二是交流能力。交流能力的培养包括两个方面:写和说。张尧学说,现在正在进行的大学四六级英语改革,一个重要的方面就是要突出对英语的运用,告别哑巴英语。还有一个是动手能力。张尧学提出,是否可以将大学生的毕业设计提前,一入大学就在老师的指导下,开始琢磨并实践,可以不断修订,以求在毕业的时候拿出一个漂亮的报告来。

有助推广汉语及中华文化

   汤姆森学习出版集团国际部总裁格雷格 布朗在签约仪式上说,随着中国经济腾飞,中国在国际上的影响力越来越大,全球学习汉语的人越来越多,《汉语900句》的推出将为汉语学习者带来帮助。 他说,这一合作项目对推广汉语以及中国文化大有裨益,汤姆森学习出版集团愿为加强中国与世界的交流做出贡献。

 

权威教材 内容轻松有趣

《汉语 900句》是一套为海外汉语初学者编写的多媒体实用口语教材。 《汉语900句》在形式上有传统的图书、CDDVD,还有新型的点读笔,方便读者在较短的时间内,以轻松、有趣的方式掌握基本会话,迅速提高汉语交际能力。 中国汉语水平考试(HSK)考点遍布世界五大洲,国内外有近200个考点。面对日益升温的汉语学习热,对外汉语教材的建设却相对滞后,缺少有影响的权威的汉语学习教材。《汉语900句》是中国国家汉办首次采用将编写、出版及发行一条龙招标形式研发的面向海外汉语学习大众的多媒体教材。该书从编写理念到出版形式都充分体现了实现汉语国际推广的发展思路。

 

华文热现《汉语900句》大市场

随着经济全球化的发展和中国经济的持续快速增长,汉语作为一种重要商业语言的使用价值正在提升,汉语学习成为一种全球性的热潮。 中国出版商认为,根据教育部国际合作与交流司的统计,目前汉语学习的快速升温是全球性的,就连太平洋岛国也开始有学校开设汉语课程。在此背景下,《汉语900句》将有巨大的市场潜力。 《汉语900句》将利用汤姆森学习出版集团的国际发行渠道在世界50个国家推广,计划在3年内发行50万套。

申请美国名校 6大关键展示你的优秀

 

  美国大学录取时,考试成绩只是其评定条件之一,学校还要结合学生的特长、学术能力、面试等情况来决定是否录取及发放奖学金。对于有意进入美国TOP50名校的国内中学生,专家建议在明确目标后,须早作打算。选择直接入读美国高中,是进入美国名校的最佳捷径。如美国佩迪高中、雅典中学、格利尔中学都是目前国内中学生选择较多的。申请名校时,还要掌握6大关键:

 

  一、高中在校学习成绩要优秀。

 

  二、参加必要的外语考试。要想进入美国名校,托福、雅思成绩是不可少的(部分院校对暂无语言成绩的优秀学生也会予以考虑)

 

  三、课外实践表现要好。也就是个人综合能力和素质,这是美国名校最为看重的一点。比如:出版过小说作品,文体技能突出,参加过科学实验的操作,设计出一些模型,参加大型竞赛并获奖等等。

 

  四、文章及自荐信抓住展现自己独特个性的良机。美国名校往往要求申请学生提供两篇文章和一封自荐信。文章的内容和题材没有限制,但却是展现自我水平的一个极佳途径;自荐信则要完整而真实地推销自己。

 

  五、写推荐信的人要了解自己。申请表另一重要内容,就是要求有老师的推荐信,这有时是成败的关键。推荐信的好坏,主要看两因素:一是老师本身的水平如何,二是你与老师的熟悉程度如何。推荐者一定要对申请人有较深入的了解,与申请人的学习、生活密切相关的人。

 

  六、面试重在有独到见解。这是整个申请过程中最为关键的一步,有很多非常优秀、各方面条件都合格的学生,却会在面试时被刷下来,因为通常对于国内学生来说这是弱项。建议学生在面谈时,要以放松、畅所欲言为佳,尽量让校方更多、更直观、更全面地了解你,展示你在申请表上无法解释的情况或表现出从表格中表现不出来的方面。

 

托福满分难保证拿全奖

 

  美国大学的奖学金设置虽然较其他国家高,但竞争十分激烈。

 

  具有优异的TOEFLGREGMAT成绩的申请者如何使自己的成绩更具有说服力,如何让学校欣赏你的整体素质,而不仅仅是考试成绩?TOEFL GRE(GMAT)成绩并不十分优异的申请者,如何在推荐信与个人简历以及读书计划中弥补这一不足,如何在成绩并不出类拔萃的情况下,使学校了解你的素质与实力?

 

  很多中国学生错误地认为,只要有了TOEFLGRE(GMAT)高分,就一定能申请到全奖,这是错误的。

 

  简练、突出的个人简历,合理、清晰的读书计划,学生在中国的学习成绩单这几项材料,每一项的重要性都不在TOEFLGREGMAT成绩之下。因此,不要忽视这些材料,准备上要多花心思,注意突出个人优势 ,以免栽跟头。

 

  此外,选择奖学金设置比例高的学校,也是获取奖学金的关键因素。据了解,目前在留学市场上,美国奖学金项目因其院校设置了丰富、高额的奖学金,只要学生评估合格,都能申请到奖学金,因而受到了广大学生的欢迎。

 

  总之,早作准备,多获取相关院校的信息,多与留学专家交流,这样学生的被录取几率将能大大提高。
