PKUAAGNY | SupChina
Exploring the future of Chinese language education in America (Mandarin)
北大大纽约地区校友会联合SupChina举办"共话美国华文教育的未来"线上交流沙龙 | Join SupChina and the PKUAAGNY in exploring the new developments and challenges in American Mandarin education in a post-COVID world.
In 2015 President Obama announced the 1 Million Strong initiative that aimed to bring the total number of stateside learners of Mandarin Chinese to 1 million by the year 2020. “If our countries are going to do more together around the world,” said Obama, “then speaking each other’s language, truly understanding each other, is a good place to start.” So has it happened? At this event, we will hear from several leaders in the Chinese language education space as they talk about their experiences and challenges in Chinese language education in America. They will also help us understand the trends of the Chinese language in America and if the 1 Million Strong initiative has become a reality.
