Why were NFLS UN model participants so strong
What is the training and selection platform behind the model participants?
Today, the editor will unveil the module UN.
In the past two years, in addition to normally selecting outstanding students from senior Grade one to enter the model couplet course, NFLS has also selected students from the second year of junior high school who are willing to enroll and have high literacy for long time training.
NFLS, as a "model United Nations high school curriculum base in Jiangsu Province" fits the high starting point (students) and high leadership (teachers) needed for curriculum activities to the greatest extent, and the school not only trains students' international vision and sense of responsibility, but also helps them pay more attention to international public affairs. Model couplet activities have better cultivated the national feelings and global competence of NFLS students, and promoted them to complete socialization and internationalization on a higher platform.
The students’ reflections
During the competition, we have witnessed a shift in the attitude of the people from trying to persuade others to seek agreement and to fight to solve the problem, from grabbing for the say to cooperating. In a short period of four days, we all grew up a lot.
This year's conference experience was great! Because I am trying to do what I love, I think those efforts are very worth it. At the same time, thank Teacher Hu Yuchen for his serious efforts. From him, I can see the ten-year enthusiasm of an old model couplet, which is worth learning from every model couplet.
As Boris said, modular couplet should be a learning experience, it should not be getting a certificate as the ultimate goal. I would like to see this HM as a new starting point, a affirmation of the past, a witness to friendship and cooperation.
Regardless of the academic gains, this was still an attempt to live an independent life, a journey to laugh with new friends and old friends, which was the most precious thing that modular couplets has brought us.
Thank my partner for his trust and support for my work; I thank the Bureau for the inclusion of our BLOC member's paper-writing errors and for their patience, and I thank myself for being able to adjusting to changing circumstances and successful completion of an excellent document.
In many people's understanding, Chinese module UN is relatively simple compared with foreign languages. Here, I must correct the misunderstanding of the Chinese model. The depth of discussion at the Chinese venue and the meticulous degree of the draft resolution are more difficult than those of the foreign language model.
Module UN has never been a single-handed fight. On this road, there will always be teachers and seniors accompanied, there will always be mutual support from our comrades, and we will go together to the end.
Although Spanish is a smaller language, the performance of each of the delegates in the meeting was excellent. At last, I want to say that I am proud because I am a MUNER!At last, I want to say that I am proud because I am a MUNER!
