UNG students Tyler Avret, Dillon Evans and Josh Shepherd finished fourth in the Chinese language category at Brigham Young University's (BYU) Business Language Case Competition in Provo, Utah. They are coached by Yizhe Huang, tutoring coordinator for Chinese Language Flagship program.

For the first time in school history, three University of North Georgia (UNG) students competed in Brigham Young University's (BYU) Business Language Case Competition in Provo, Utah.

"As a first-time participant of this competition, I'm proud of this team," said Yizhe Huang, the team's coach and tutoring coordinator for Chinese Language Flagship program.

The competition gives undergraduate students a chance to present an international business case in Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, French, or Arabic. The competition is for non-native speakers of the languages with prizes given to top teams. Its intention is to increase students' international business acumen and language skills, and presentation skills while networking with international business professionals, according to BYU's Marriott School website.

UNG students Josh Shepherd, Tyler Avret and Dillon Evans finished fourth in the Chinese language category. Six other schools competed in Chinese, including the University of Rhode Island, Indiana University, West Point, University of Washington, Brigham Young University and Northeastern University.

Huang said UNG received good feedback from the judges.

"They were pleased with language proficiency, especially regarding the speaking and listening skills," she said.
