Cem: A Turkish lecturer of the Beijing Foreign Studies University
Cem Aygün explains the words in a Turkish book to his student at his office in the Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) in Beijing, China, Feb. 15, 2012. While walking in the office building of the Asian and African Studies School of the Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU), it is so quiet that nothing could be heard except the footsteps. Obviously, the campus still enjoys the last days of the winter vacation. On the second floor in the building, there is an office with its door opened, where Cem Aygün is busy drawing up a plan for his lessons. He will meet his students next week in the spring semester, and he has prepared plenty of materials to share in the class. Cem is a Turkish lecturer of the BFSU. He likes his job. "I think I am not bad on teaching language." he said. Like many foreign teachers in China, Cem places much stress on interactivity during the teaching and learning progress, which is welcomed by his students. Besides reading textbooks in the classroom, Cem sometimes conducts learning activities outdoors together with his colleagues and students. Before, Cem had got an editing job in a Chinese media in 1997. After worked there for a year, he flied back to his hometown in Izmir, Turkey. He said that if someone lived in Beijing for a while, he would definitely want to visit it again. "It is a rule!" he added. According to the "rule", Cem returned to Beijing, and started to work in the BFSU in 2001. Cem said he had many unforgettable memories here in Beijing: volunteered for the Beijing Olympics, took part in the parade for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China in the Tian'anmen Square, and was granted the Beijing Great Wall Friendship Award, etc.
