Established in September 2005, the School of Foreign Languages (SFL), one the first schools of University of Sanya (USY), consists of three departments and three research centers: Department of English, Department of Japanese, Department of Russian, Language and Culture Research Center, Russian Center, and Cross-culture Research Center. The three departments combine the studies of English, Japanese and Russian languages and cultures with an orientation on international tourism, business and secretarial management. The overall objective of the SFL is to prepare students for the local economic and social development, emphasizing students’ all-round development--moral, intellectual, physical and aesthetic--with a good mastery of foreign languages and tourism- and business-related skills. Our goal is to equip students not only with professional competence in foreign languages but also creativity and extended knowledge in international trade, cultural communication and foreign language training.
Along with USY’s rapid development, SFL has thrived over the past twelve years and developed into a well-organized faculty of outstanding teaching and academic research achievements. It consists of 95 devoted professional faculty and staff. At present, 95% of the faculty hold PhD and masters degree, 80% of them are professors, associated professors and lecturers, including 13 international teachers.
