F+U Academy of Languages in Jieyang und Xiamen


In the second week of our journey to China, F+U Academy of Languages visited the Sino-German Metal Eco City in Jieyang. “There is a great network of German and Chinese companies,” says Karl-Heinz Rippel, director of the academy. “Medium-sized companies work together closely, which means there are also great opportunities for F+U in the area of language and professional training.”

This autumn, the first cohort of Chinese employees will come to Heidelberg for an extended stay of one year. “The provincial government asked us to open a representative office in Jieyang to facilitate cooperation and exchange.”

The Sino-German Metal Eco City in Jieyang also houses a number of research centres, many of which were built in a German architectural style. A whole new city is being constructed. The tour also included the old China, such as a traditional rice mill.

Nearing the end of the China tour, F+U Academy of Languages visited Xiamen University, where Karl-Heinz Rippel spoke to Professor Wang of the Faculty of Metallurgy. Again, there is great interest in German language courses.

Founded in 1926, Xiamen is one of China’s leading universities and boasts one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, which is located on an island only a few hundred metres away from the beach.

Technological progress has found its way into all areas of life in China, which can be seen in the fact that the Chinese no longer use money to pay in shops, but their cell phones. “There is an app for everything,” says Karl-Heinz Rippel. At the same time, the Chinese continue to cherish their traditional ways of life, such as their world-famous cuisine. As Mr Rippel says, “The food is a feast, morning, noon, and night!”
