Student Testimonials  

From my studies at CTBU I learned many things, and many of the things I learned could be put into practice during my time in China, much about the culture and the way business is done could be seen every day, and the workings of the economy could be seen through my internships, along with everyday people on the street. My most interesting class was taught by a fellow Englishman, macroeconomics lessons were always highly informative and very interesting. I learned a great deal through my internships and studying whilst here in CTBU.

I am very delighted to know you and to have the chance to learn Chinese in CTBU. I am always asked “Is it difficult to learn Chinese?” I answer, “Very difficult.” When I first got to China, I can only say “Ni hao”(Hello), “Xie xie”(Thank you), “Zai jian”(Goodbye). Now almost one year has passed, I still think that it is very difficult to learn Chinese. However, I am quite interested in learning Chinese, and teachers, classmates and my Chinese friends here are all very helpful to me, so that I can learn Chinese better and better.

Thank you very much!

If I have the chance to visit China again, I must come to visit you.

Wow! Thank you very much for the great time here. I had the best time of my life so far I really enjoyed the country, the culture and life at CTBU. In Holland the language classes are not my favorite. But in China I really enjoyed the Chinese language classes! At the university I was so happy to join the Olympic Games. My Chinese teacher just asked me: “what souvenirs will you take home?” I will take home a really good life experience. In China I also learned that ‘a smile’ is very important.

   Thank you all!

I can not fully express how grateful I am to all of you for your hard work and support this semester. You have been incredible! Travelling across the world to study in an unfamiliar country for such a long time is a heavy burden for any student, yet you all make it such a simple and pleasant process!

I have made some fantastic friends during my time at CTBU, learned many valuable lessens to take with me into the future and perhaps most importantly, discouraged for myself the incredible city of Chongqing and all it has to offer!

I will always have fond memories of eating hotpot, visiting the epic DaZu Carvings walking along the bustling CiQi Kou and being dazzled by the bright lights of Nanping and Jie Fang Bei.

My time here has been the greatest of my life so far! And I still was not able to see everything China has to offer, So I’ll see you all soon!

With my warmest regards and sincerest thanks! 我爱重庆!我爱重庆工商大学!

From to the enormous support of the International Office, to the remarkable hospitality of the students and the picturesque views on campus, there is no other explanation that I could offer as to why I enjoy being an international student at CTBU. I’m grateful to be apart of CTBU.

I’m so happy to be in CTBU. They take care of foreigner students very well. They’re always focused on solving our problems and make us feel very comfortable. Beside the hospitality and the service, CTBU also appreciates my talent and encourage me to develop my skills. This is the exact place to establish your ability in education, socialization and network.

A warm smile is what you’re always going to get from CQ people. All this makes me feel like I’m part of the community, society and above all, it makes me feel like part of a bigger FAMILY.

All this gives me a feeling of royalty, a great sense of appreciation, love and belonging.

In conclusion I should say, coming to China was the best as well as the boldest move I’ve ever made in my life so far. I’m glad I’m here and I enjoy every moment of my stay, I cherish and appreciate every crack of dawn. All in all, I just want to say I LOOOOOOVE CHONGQING and my study in CTBU has always been an opportunity for growth and I want to salute and express my sincere gratitude to the CTBU staff and students, thank you for making us want to recommend you to others to come to your school.
