Shengfei Han and Jianhong LuThe Confucius Institute personnel participate in 7th National Chinese Language Conference.

May 8-10, 2014 - Shengfei Han, Chinese Co-Director of Confucius Institute at University of Idaho and Jianhong Lu, Chinese language instructor, attended the 7th annual National Chinese Language Conference (NCLC) in Los Angeles, California.

The NLCL is dedicated to new ideas and best practices in the field of Chinese language teaching and learning and U.S.–China educational exchange. This year's program continued to focus on cutting-edge approaches to teaching that incorporate culture, technology, international exchange, program quality and sustainability, and best practices in the classroom leading to high levels of language proficiency and deeper knowledge of China.

Confucius Institute Headquarters, based in Beijing China, held a special session on issues related to the establishment of Confucius Classrooms in the U.S. which are inspiring and encouraging to what our institute is currently working on with Moscow High School and the school districts of Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls.

A session was also convened on the Chinese immersion programs and related concepts and theories. Many theories were proposed such as setting the target of immersion education as producing culturally global citizens and learning Chinese through studying the Chinese culture or relevant disciplines or vice versa, instead of a mono-dimensional language teaching process. The explorations will continue.

Through attending this important conference, our members of UI learned a lot of information on teaching methods, class activities, and also established friendships with other local Chinese language teachers. This will help further the development of our Confucius Institute programs and increase the opportunities for Idaho students and educators.
