practicing center in China, which is a new exploration and attempt of the cultivation of applied talents in foreign languages. “Global Village”
has more than 20 languages and cultures villages, such as China Village and English Village. Each village displays the politics, economy,
history, science and technology, education, sports and other cultural symbols of each country through the miniature landscape of landmark
buildings, boards and various kinds of physical objects, so that students can experience the culture of all countries in the world and can
appreciate the diff erent customs of all countries in the world without going abroad. Studying the cultural symbols of “Global Village” from
