Thousands of children from the U.S. and more than thirty countries around the world have attended SLG’s summer programs in China since 2003, bridging youth together on the global stage.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Sino Language Gateway (SLG) announced plans to attend several national conferences focusing on Chinese promotion and international educational exchange during the months of November and December to advocate best practices in linguistic and cultural education. Now that the Fall and Winter seasons are underway and the staff’s schedules aren't as packed with student groups departing to China or coming to the U.S., SLG will now focus on reconnecting with schools, teachers, educational administrators, policymakers, and other community members in the U.S. and across the world to share best practices, research findings, and inspire ideas in the field of Chinese language and cultural education.
As a pioneer and professional provider of Chinese language and cultural exchange programs, SLG aims to attend major educational conferences to help spearhead and nurture collaborations with international educators. From November 10th through 11th, SLG will join the third annual Chinese Language Education Forum (CLEF) in San Francisco, California where there will be hundreds of attendees in the educational field from the U.S., China, Japan, South Korea, as well as several European countries.
Then from November 16th through 18th, SLG will attend the annual convention held by The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the largest convention in the U.S. dedicated to the improvement and expansion of teaching and learning of all foreign languages at various levels of instruction. With more than 6,000 language educators, students, and administrators expected to attend, SLG sees this as a promising opportunity to motivate and inspire fellow educators through the wild success of past SLG China camps. Thousands of children from the U.S. and from more than thirty countries around the world have attended SLG’s summer programs in China since 2003, bridging youth together on the global stage. “We want to develop programs that dramatically improve students’ Chinese and bring back those experiences that students want to repeat!” said SLG Marketing Director, Anna Yu.
SLG has seen children and youth, ranging from grades K through 12, return from their China summer programs with heightened Chinese language ability and interest toward the culture greatly enhanced by their visits to China. From these experiences, SLG is excited to share and spread the keys to their success. In addition, in an effort to strengthen relationships with international educators in North America, SLG plans to also attend the International Consultants for Education and Fairs (ICEF) during December 2nd through 4th in Miami, Florida, the major event bringing together international educators and high-quality student recruitment agents at networking forums around the world. Yu added: “We are looking forward to meeting high schools and universities in the U.S. and Canada that are interested in growing international student enrollments, especially students from China.”
