This recent outbreak has brought forward new challenges that very few of us has ever faced. Our homes, neighborhoods, campuses have been put under lockdown. Many pleasantries that we have grown accustomed to and took for granted in our usual life became unavailable. So it is normal for some of us to feel overwhelmed by a wide range of emotions that may go from helplessness, desperation, restlessness, paranoia all the way to pure and simple fear for our lives and the lives of those who are dear to us.
In order to put our minds to rest, it might be useful to acknowledge two aspects of our current situation. First of all we have confidence, capabilities and definition to win this virus. Secondly this can be an important experience from which we can learn some valuable lessons that can help us grow stronger as individuals as well as communities.
My suggestion is to use this valuable opportunity to cut out any external distraction and do some introspection. Finding what is really important for your well being can be an excellent way to prioritize effectively for your future after everything will inevitably go back to normal. Specifically, I sincerely hope and would like to help you realize that the pursuit of knowledge is the best way to invest your time and efforts.
We are all in this together and we can do this. We will overcome this tragedy and come out of it stronger than ever before. Come on, Zhengzhou University! Come on, ZZUers!

The most beautiful things in life are not just things. They’re people, places and memories.
I'm getting ready to meet my students again that I’ve missed when China was hit hard by the CONVID 19. I’ll say that I’m really impressed of the immediate, strong and effective measures the government have taken to control the spread of the virus.
We are all without any doubt by the side of China through the fight against CONVID 19. And to all my students, I love and miss you all. Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. Stay safe and strong, don’t stop practicing your spoken English and I believe in China that we will overcome this moment.

When I first heard about the Coronavirus I wasn´t taking it too seriously. I thought it would be gone soon. I did not think that so many people would get sick and even die. But I am positive that we will win this fight against the virus soon. This is a time we all have to stand together and work towards ending this pandemic. We should all do what we can do to prevent a further spread of the virus.
Many of you might be bored at home but I see this as a time of opportunity. You can use this time to relax and enjoy time with your family. You can work on your cooking skills, work out and use this time to learn something new. You can even start to learn a new language. Everyone can use the time at home to do something useful!
I also want to say to my students. Take this virus very seriously and don´t forget your studies. Be vigilant when you go outside or interact with people. Wear a mask and gloves when you go outside. I wish all of you health and happiness. Soon you will see you friends again and be back in your normal students life. I look forward to seeing you all again in class and on campus! I believe in China and I believe in the people living here! Stay strong!

Hello from my Apartment! Hope everyone is doing well and being bored is the biggest of your worries. I've been staying inside, keeping safe and healthy (as you all should). Spending my days preparing for classes and upgrading my cooking skills. Spending my nights watching TV shows and trying to memorize that song from The Witcher.
I have to say, I miss being on campus and interacting with students. Sharing knowledge, our cultures and a few laughs are what I'm looking forward to most when classes go back to normal.
It feels like an eternity has passed since the start of the Corona virus outbreak, but I'm confident that even this will pass. Things seem to be getting better and I'm excited to hear how everyone has grown and what new English you all learned during this extended holiday! Keep working hard (but don't forget to have a little fun as well)!

To the students of International College of Zhengzhou University: Even though we are going through this time of difficult circumstances, learning should never stop. While we are given this time to stay home, not only to protect ourselves from the coronavirus but we can also think of it as a time of reflection of the past and planning of the future.
For me, I realized how my dream of teaching in an university has been fulfilled for the past two years by teaching at Zhengzhou University. I’m also using this time to develop my hobby of painting and drawing; I have painted around forty pictures so far. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage my students to take advantage of this prolonged vacation to strengthen your academics by reviewing and previewing your subjects at the same time develop some life skills such as cooking.
We will see each other soon and by that time you will be physically and mentally ready to welcome the new semester!

Hello All,Too bad we are not in class yet. Hopefully soon though. Stay in good spirits, as with everything in life, this will pass. Try to keep occupied and entertained to keep the boredom at bay. Hopefully you are staying safe by washing your hands often. Anyway take care and see you soon.
We shall not give our hopes up in these dire times, whereby the virus has inevitably causes a lot of inconveniences in our everyday activities. The International College, including our International Cooperation Department and other offices, is making numerous efforts to help students continue their studies.
Currently, some courses are taught online, with goals of not disrupting the regular work flow. These online courses are interactive and innovative means for students to continue learning. Additionally, students are encouraged to self-study via the campus platform. This means that even at home, students are learning without interruption. Students’ studies are of utmost importance to us.
Despite the obstacles created by the virus, we're all anxiously looking forward to the campus life. When school resumes, you will be able to hang out with friends, see your favorite teachers, and continue living the wonderful college life. You will doubly treasure the good campus times. I wish everyone wellness in your body and mind as you continue your studie at home. We look forward to seeing you back in school, healthy, happy, and eager to learn.
