The Year 2020 started with the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Everybody was suffered, and it was true. 


Wenzhou-Kean University international faculty members were not exceptions. They struggled to come back to campus. And they stayed on the campus since their arrival on campus. 


In Winter, no international faculty could go outside of Zhejiang province of China without special permission. 


Most of international faculty should stay at Wenzhou area in the gloomy winter. WKU HR, then, suggested and organized "Faculty Retreat" programs to culturalize and socialize international faculty members.

From the 2020 winter Faculty Retreat, Dr. Choi develop himself as a "New Media" expert through recording, archiving, and disseminating 'Wenzhou, China, Culture and Tradition" learning.

His archives are in the below website.

His new media contents are in the below Youtube channel.


Program 1 (Line 1) went to Hendgian Film making sites (Chinese Hollywood) and Hot spring at Wuyi in Zhejiang province.

I would like to update one issue of MGS4999 W01, W02 online class participation.

I am actively participating in the DQ discussions for those courses at Blackboard system. 

But, as you know, I am using Google Classroom for MGS4999 W01, 02 classes for Assignment participation because the pre-defined course structure was not compatible with my teaching. 

You can see my google classrooms: 

MGS4999 W01: https://classroom.google.com/w/NTIzOTg5MTYyNjZa/t/all

MGS4999 W02: https://classroom.google.com/w/NTIzOTY3MzczODFa/t/all

At the google classroom, I proactively communicate, give feedback, and participate in interactions like below. 

I also use WeChat Groups to encourage my students to participate in learning. 

If you take all things together, my teaching of MGS4999 classes would be the most participative classes in WKU online. WKU online can make a 'real' survey to students rather than checking our Blackboard. 

Please take my clarification descriptions, and use my case to justify CBPM faculty's relatively low participation.

How to Transfer Money from Wenzhou-Kean University (China) to (foreign) Home? 


From Sept. 01, 2019, Wenzhou-Kean University (WKU) directly deposits salary of (foreign) faculty members on 'Chinese Bank Account'. 


Transferring money from China to (foreign) home is becoming faculty members' responsibility. 


Monthly, two Chinese banks (ICBC and Bank of China) will come to campus and help WKU's foreign faculty members transferring money. But WKU faculty members need to be prepared to transfer money from a Chinese bank account to a foreign bank account. 


Here is a possible 'practice' to manage and to make international money transfer smoothly. 


1. Make a primary account that has no 'International Money Transfer' limit. 


China strictly controls 'international money transfer' especially from China to a foreign country. You need to open a primary account that has 'no international money transfer' at your Chinese domestic bank. You need to bring a few numbers of documents (such as Passport, Tax Record from the school's finance department, and Chinese domestic phone number) to open the account. 



You may need to visit the bank physically at least one time to make the 'No Limit' primary account. 


Here is the information of ICBC location. 



Address: No. 99 Xiangyuan Road, Wenzhou

Tel: 0577-8887-7878




2. You can make a secondary account (10,000 RMB limited international money transfer) of living in China. 


Separating international money transfer account from living expenses account can help us to manage money better. The living expenses secondary card can be used to pay Chinese domestic expenses (e.g. Alipay, Taobao, WeChat pay). When you come to your Chinese Bank, you can make a primary and a secondary account at the same time. And you can manage 'International Money Transfer Account' and 'Domestic transaction Account' separately. 



3. Transfer your salary to your home account (monthly or whatever you want) when Chinese bank comes to WKU campus. 

Necessary Documents: 


Updated Necessary Documents (2020 after COVID-19)


The document that banks require for international transactions are:


1. Original Passport


2. Income Statement with Red Stamp (Salary Information, Email from WKU Finance Department, notarized with red stamp by WKU HR)


3. Tax Certificate with Red Stamp (Get it from WKU HR )


4. Annual Contract with Red Stamp (Get it from WKU HR)


5. Transferring Foreign Bank Account Information (Name, SWIFT Code + Account Number, Address, Telephone Number)


6. Chinese Bank Card (Please check the possible amount of international transfer)


7. (Optional) Declaration



*Please remember to get a red stamp from HR (Office TB A217) for both contract and salary pay stuff. That is a new policy from the banks from this new semester.


**It will take several days for our staff to obtain the tax payment certificate from the Chinese Tax Authority. Please contact Bessie Hu Luhong as early as possible if you need to apply for the Tax Payment certificate (her email: luhong_hu@wku.edu.cn )



Example of "Red Stamps" on Income Statement (Salary pay stub)


Example of "Red Stamps" on Annual Contract (Appointment letter)




Living in China and transferring money to a (foreign) home is not an easy task, but it can be done smoothly if we can work together.
