About Foreign Languages Department
The Foreign Languages Department is committed to the teaching and research of English for both general and academic purposes. Against the backdrop of curriculum reform in SUMC over the years, the department has launched a series of English curriculum reforms in line with the National College English Curriculum Requirements and the learning needs of medical students.

In particular, Academic English course adopts blended teaching approach by effectively combining established MOOC resources, online learning and classroom interaction. It has been selected as National Top-notch Online-and-Offline Blended Undergraduate Course by the Ministry of Education of People’s Republic of China.
