Many alumni gave advice on curriculum teaching, student training and alumni association’s work considering their own experience in teaching, politics, business and other careers. Zhao Shenglan pointed out, “Talents should be trained under high standards and strict requirements. Translation requires both proficiency in the language itself and a wide range of knowledge. Particular attention should be paid to the vocabularies with Chinese characteristics when people translate.” “I have just retired from overseas work and I am willing to dedicate myself to the school.” said Yang Youlin. Xi Wenhua added, “As a resource and a platform, alumni should be developed and employed more deeply.” Sheng Lizhong said, “Students will eventually go to work so the school should offer them more training opportunities to improve their capacity of utilizing professional knowledge and skills to solve problems in real life. In this case, they will soon meet the corresponding requirements after entering the workplace.” Alumnus’ pertinent advice and sincere words reflect their willingness to repay the alma mater.
