National Chinese Language Conference: Boston April 7 – 9

April 2, 2013

I won’t be attending this conference but would love to run reports from any parents, teachers or principals who are. If you’d like to be a correspondent, email me.


On the Main Stage

April 7–9, 2013 | Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel

Just confirmed for NCLC 2013: Chinese-American comedian Joe Wong (黄西)! Joe has dazzled audiences with his hilarious performances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and was recently the subject of a New York Times profile. He’s even roasted Vice President Joe Biden at the National Radio and Television Correspondents Association Dinner. A trained scientist with a Ph.D. in biochemistry, Joe’s unique—and intelligent—brand of bilingual, bicultural humor is a perfect fit for our conference themes and audience.

This year’s NCLC will be bigger than ever with more than 70 breakout sessions and workshops that focus on model approaches to teaching that incorporate culture, technology, and international exchange, program quality and sustainability, and best practices in the classroom leading to high levels of language proficiency and deeper knowledge of China.
We will also feature performances by the Voices of Renaissance Choir, the Medfield Jazz Band featuring acclaimed erhu player Yang Ying, and winners of the International Chinese Bridge Competition.
