As a significant part of the SFL students’ 2021 Summer Vacation Internship, the China-Korea “Cloud” Mandarin Course was specifically designed for the students of GNU and conducted by the students of SZTU. The ceremony was held both online and at SZTU, where over 30 students and teachers from both sides interacted with each other via video conference. The attendees shared their views on the Sino-Korean cultural exchange and cooperation between the two universities. Since its foundation, SZTU has sustained the vision of internationalization by nurturing international talents and valuing international exchange and cooperation. In the autumn of 2019, SZTU signed a cooperation agreement with the delegation from GNU led by Deputy Dean Kim Duk-hwan. Since then, the two universities have maintained a firm friendship, with the successful holding of several cultural exchange programs, including 2020 Winter Camp on Cantonese Culture and Online Cantonese Program for the Korean students. These programs have greatly contributed to SZTU’s internationalization process and expanded the students’ global horizon.
