China's continued growth and increasing global influence presents new economic, political and social realities that demand greater engagement and co-operation at every level.
As a result, many U.S. schools have realized the need to create programs that will raise the number of American students who can demonstrate a functional proficiency in Chinese language. Such programs are quickly becoming a more integrated part of the mainstream American curriculum.
Endorsed by the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C. (Office for Educational Affairs), as well as the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representatives Office (TECRO) in the United States, ITES maintains strategic U.S. / Chinese partnerships and is uniquely positioned to help our partner schools implement Chinese language programs and host Chinese teachers.
If you're not quite ready to host a Chinese teacher, many schools in China are eager to have "sister-school" relationships with schools in the U.S. This kind of relationship is an exciting opportunity for your students and faculty to connect with like-minded counterparts from another culture, and can be a great first step toward implementing your own program.
