Foreign Language Speaking Volunteers organized in NLC

Today in the afternoon, the launching ceremony of the Foreign Language Speaking Volunteers of the National Library of China was held. About 40 young volunteers attended the ceremony.

As one of the advisers, I attended the ceremony and talked about my experiences in English language translation for NLC.

Foreign languages are very important for NLC to become internationalized. More and more young staff members can speak foreign languages very well. NLC will become IFLA Chinese language center, and more volunteers are needed for IFLA activities and other international cooperation activities.
