Global Competence of Normal Undergraduates


Global competence refers to individual’s attitudes towards other cultures, basic knowledge level about the world, the competence to survive in a cultural-crossing environment and the role of citizens of the world. It has been increasingly significant nowadays, especially for children representing the future. Therefore, the global thinking patterns of perspective teachers who will teach future children should be valued. However, the current situation of normal undergraduates’ global competence is worrying. Hence, the global competence of prospective teachers should be enhanced without hesitation. Several ways have been put forward while some disadvantages still exist.
