In the past junior high schools, almost every teacher in the history subject needs to assign a varying amount of homework to the students in the class after the class is over. Even though there are differences in the teaching content of various subjects, but under the influence of traditional teaching concepts, the forms of assignments for all subject teachers are the same, and most of them require students to copy, recite, and dictate what they have learned. In addition, when teachers assign homework to students, they usually fail to fully consider the differences between students. Under such a homework assignment model, students are bound to gradually lose interest in the learning process of history in junior high school. At the same time, it is easy to be suppressed by too much homework, which affects its own physical fitness. Based on the implementation of the current “double reduction” policy, this article discusses the relevant practices of the hierarchical assignment of history subjects, in order to promote the effective improvement of the teaching efficiency of history subjects.

Subtitling is an essential branch of audiovisual translation involving the transition from spoken language to written language. This paper is an attempt to prove that Henrik Gottlieb’s subtitling strategies (1992) can be well applied in Spanish translation and Chinese translation to guide further translation practice, with the aim of improving the quality of interlingual subtitling. The research objects of this study are Chinese subtitles and Spanish subtitles of the film Call Me by Your Name, which are both available on Netflix. The study provides several examples to shed light on how each translation strategy is adopted by Spanish subtitler and Chinese subtitler, and tries to explore possible reasons behind their translations. In this movie, the Spanish translator tends to use transfer, transcription, condensation, decimation and deletion, while the Chinese translator prefers to use expansion and paraphrase. The main hypothesis is that language and cultural differences between English and Chinese are more significant than between English and Spanish.

A minimum of 2 reviewers will be selected from the pool of reviewers available according to their expertise and suitability to the subject matter of the manuscript. Reviewers will have to give their comments and recommendations (AcceptMajor RevisionsReject) to the Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editor for them to make a final decision on the paper, and their comments will help the authors improve their papers.

Upon recommendations by the reviewers, the Editor-in-Chief or the Associate Editor can make a final decision on the paper and inform the author on their decision, adding comments to the Authors to make improvements in their research or paper.

Typically there are 3 main decisions in the peer review process – AcceptMajor Revisions or Reject. If the Editor-in-Chief accepts the paper, it could be split into Minor revisions (author to make minor amendments to the paper) or No revisions (no amendments required by author), after which the paper can be sent to the Editing stage.

If the decision is a Major Revision, the authors are required to make the changes as suggested in the comments accordingly and the paper will be resubmitted for a second (or third) round of review. If the decision is to Reject the manuscript, the author will be notified and the rejected manuscript will be archived and the peer review process ends.

An accepted paper will be sent for Copy Editing, Layout Editing and Proofreading before publication of the paper. Correspondence between the authors and USP will be required here in order to improve the language and/or look of the manuscript. After the Editing stage is completed, authors are required to check the PDF file of the final version before the article is published. USP registers DOI for the manuscript before publishing it on our site, in which the article is immediately accessible to the public.

News: Australia’s biggest university, Monash, is pulling out of South Africa after 18 years

After 18 years, Australia's Monash University will be pulling out of South Africa, selling out to JSE-listed education group Advtech in a R340 million deal.

Monash South Africa was registered in 2000, and markets itself as a local provider of degrees with international brand recognition. Its Johannesburg campus has a capacity of 6,500 students and features a number of student residences, popular among students from other African countries.

But the Monash name will disappear from that campus, its soon-to-be new owners say.
