Expand Maine’s Chinese language and culture programs

UPDATE: The application deadline has been extended to Aug. 23.

K–12 and higher education administrators, school leaders and other education decision-makers actively seeking to develop new and expanded Chinese programs are invited to attend the 2013 Chinese Bridge Delegation — a one-week trip to China hosted by Hanban. The trip, scheduled for Nov. 6-14, will focus on school visits, cultural activities and educational workshops with the aim of helping attendees start and expand their at-home Chinese language and culture programs.

Participants will:

  • Visit Chinese K–12 schools and universities and meet with Chinese educators and observe classes
  • Establish meaningful partnerships with Chinese schools and network with colleagues
  • Attend presentations on best practices and learn about resources to build and support Chinese language and culture programs
  • Experience China firsthand and marvel at the rich traditional culture set against stunning modern development

Both first-time participants and former delegates are welcome to apply. The priority application deadline is Aug. 23. Visit www.collegeboard.com/chinesebridge to apply. A $900 nonrefundable registration fee covers international airfare, hotels, meals, ground transportation, visits to cultural and historical sites and other in-China costs.
