Dear Friends,
The Mandarin Institute in conjunction with STARTALK will offer a K-12 Chinese Teacher Preparation Program to teachers from the U.S. and the Greater China area. It is an unparalleled opportunity for new Chinese language teachers and teachers who are new to teaching in US classrooms, to gain concrete classroom experience teaching American students. For qualifying teachers, the tuition fee ($1600) will be waived. Please help us spreading the word.

Teachers will learn the critical skills they need to be innovative and successful in the classroom and to facilitate high quality Chinese language programming in their schools. This training enables participants to practice what they have learned in authentic American classrooms with real students at the same level as they are going to teach. This program emphasizes “hands-on” training, ensuring that theory is presented in collaboration with the application for a comprehensive training experience. Critical communication skills will be learned through interacting with real school administrators, teacher peers and parents.

Dates: August 1 – August 5, 2011
