SPEAC (Summer Programs East Asian Concentration)-Teacher Training is an intensive seven-week training program, designed to develop participants' Chinese language teaching skills through lectures, master class observation, and hands-on teaching. Guided by the performed culture approach, this program is closely integrated with the intensive Chinese language program of SPEAC. Participants of the Chinese teacher training (TC) program have abundant opportunities to practice their newly acquired teaching skills with actual learners. Professor Galal Walker of The Ohio State University, co-author of Chinese, Communicating in the Culture, directs and teaches in the program. Applicants should have a high level of competency in both the Mandarin Chinese and English languages. SPEAC is offered by the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures (DEALL) in collaboration with the National East Asian Languages Resource Center (NEALRC) at The Ohio State University.
