Looking to launch or expand a Chinese language and culture program in your school or district? Apply now to host a visiting Chinese teacher for the 2011-12 school year! Now in its fourth year, the Chinese Guest Teacher Program is the largest K–12 visiting Chinese teacher program in the U.S., and has brought nearly 500 experienced Chinese teachers to schools across the nation. The program is made possible through a collaboration between the College Board and Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters, an organization that promotes Chinese language and culture study worldwide.
The Chinese Guest Teacher Program represents a unique opportunity for students and communities to learn Chinese language and authentic culture from a native speaker. The guest teacher's salary is partially subsidized by Hanban and host institutions can pilot or expand a Chinese program at a reasonable cost.
