Athletic Competition in April

Would you like to experience the enthusiasm of the youth at first hand? Every year, the basketball-teams of the foreign language departments of all universities in Taiwan are invited by the Chang-Jung University to fight for the Chang-Jung Foreign Languages Cup. In 2015, this event also took place again. But why is it so important? About 500 athletes of some 40 departments islandwide have participated in the latest competition. It is worth mentioning that also the team of the Applied English Department at Ming-Chuan University was there, because if these outstandingly sporty young men and women are in, then they mostly win. It means that the games get really exciting!
