Prize Winning Certificates
Linguistics is the study of phenomenons and laws of languages. Linguistic competition requires contestants to combine their knowledge of liberal arts and human science with logical thinking to work out the problems. In UWC Changshu China, our teachers and students come from over 100 countries and regions with 50 different mother tongues, which provides an ideal environment and vast resources for linguistic studies and cross-cultural communication. The process of exploration and personal challenge, as well as the development of cultural understanding are all very much in line with UWC values.
