Since ancient China, study tour has played an important role in shaping individual personalities and knowledge. Confucius took his students to tour many states to enrich their knowledge, build their characters and broaden their horizons. As the Chinese saying goes, “It is as important to travel as it is to read many books”.
Over the years, Cema Training School of Translation and Interpreting (Cema) has launched many interpreting camps in Australia, London, the UN and Silicon Valley. As a cross-cultural immersive teaching initiative, the camp encourages and guides the campers to explore foreign cultures, learn a second language and get to know different values, which has greatly improved their interpreting skills and social skills in a multilingual environment.
Cema is dedicated to cultivating the campers in terms of language skills, inheritance of traditional values, global vision, personality, which also fuels the globalization of China and the interpreting industry in China.
The campers have made huge progress in their practice under the guidance of the most seasoned and accomplished interpreters. Also, they have visited tourist spots and learned about local cultures, which is a fun way of learning.
