Donghua University, affiliated to the Ministry of Education, is one of the top 100 universities in China, namely, 211 Project University. As one of its mainly constructed colleges, College of Foreign Languages (CFL) has a long history dating back to 1951. First as the Foreign Languages Teaching Section, then as the Department of Foreign Languages and under its present name since 1999, CFL continues to build on its heritage of academic excellence. In the past decades, CFL has committed itself to language teaching, offering English and Japanese languages teaching as well as French and German. In recent years, it is making a transition into a teaching and research college.
