Every year the Asia Society holds its annual National Chinese Language Conference. It’s the go-to conference for Chinese teaching and has become a hotspot of Mandarin immersion information. I’ve only gotten to attend one but I learned a ton and for anyone in the field it’s truly not to be missed.

This year it’s in Salt Lake City, and as we all know, Utah has the most built-out and organized state-wide language immersion programs in the country. So the school tours alone are going to be worth the price of admission.

That said, the conference is not cheap, so think about doing some fundraising so that your master teachers can go and bring back the latest and the greatest in Mandarin immersion to your students. And if your district is sitting on the fence about creating a program, this would be the place to send recalcitrant administrators…

The 2018 National Chinese Language Conference will be held from May 17-19, 2018. The main conference will conclude by 12 PM noon on Saturday, May 19.
