Chinese Bridge Delegation – Strengthening Language Programs

By Hung-Chun Liu, Upper School Mandarin Teacher

Last November I attended the Chinese Bridge Delegation trip sponsored by the College Board. This is a one-week educational trip hosted by Hanban, designed to help educators strengthen their Chinese language programs, culture programs, and partnerships. The activities and itinerary of this program are focused on partnership-building, school visits, cultural activities, and educational workshops. During the trip, I visited several schools in Beijing and Harbin, met Chinese educators and observed classes. I learned about many valuable resources that will help us expand our own Chinese program here at Westtown, and found a wonderful international boarding school (Beijing Royal School) as our partnership school.

The following information is the presentation I gave at the end of the trip. I believe this trip provided a lot of useful resources to develop our future language exchange program.

We are also excited to announce that in 2013 we will officially launch Westtown Chinese Senior Project and study abroad program for all our Mandarin students. We have chosen Beijing Royal School (BRS) as our partner school. We believe the advanced education, global vision, international experiences, and boarding facilities of BRS create the ideal environment for our students to learn Chinese language, experience Chinese culture and have a great time in China.
