A Tentative Exploration into the Features of the English Corner at Renmin University of China
Su, Tiping; Wu, Jun
International Education Studies, v2 n4 p99-105 Nov 2009
This paper has investigated the distinctive features of the English Corner at Renmin University of China. The popularity of the English Corner at RUC is firstly attributed to its physical advantage: the location of the university ensuring convenient transportation; the location of the English Corner easy to be found; and the timing on Friday evening without duration limit. And its weak points and problems include: participants have difficulties in finding an ideal matching partner and suitable topics to discuss; though seemingly more than other English Corners, the foreigners joining it are still fewer than the participants have expected.
