As a part of serial activities by the labour union group of the Center for Astro-geodynamics Research, an English salon, titled “Car, Car Use and Car Culture” was held at SHAO on April 12th. Professor Zhang Keke from University of Exeter, UK joined and hosted our salon, making splendid communications with us.
Starting from the topic of car culture of western countries in history and now, we analyzed the changes of views on car and then talked about their reasons and influence on people’s life, environment and car industry as well. We also compared the car culture in China and western countries. With great interest in the field that is very popular, everyone talked cheerfully.
English salons，aiming at promoting our English listening and speaking ability, not only provide a good opportunity to practise oral English but also further mutual understanding. Welcome to our salons!
