Chinese Language Schools in the US

Most westerners who come to learn Chinese in China may have heard about the remarks made by the United States president Barack Obama in one high school graduation ceremony in Memphis. He said that when the students are looking for a job, they will not just compete with the young people from Nashville or Atlanta’s, but also with those from Beijing and Mumbai.

In order to receive the challenge and competition of such kind, more and more primary schools and secondary schools realized the importance of opening Chinese language schools to encourage students to study Chinese. According to the latest survey of United States Department of Education Center for Applied Linguistics, Chinese courses develop better as they reduce expenditure to cancel the foreign language teaching in middle schools.

The Chinese language courses in the United States have expanded from eastern and western coast to the Midwest. According to the reports of New York Times, the number of primary and secondary schools setting up Chinese learning programs has risen from 300 of 10 years ago more than more than 1600 in recently years.

The statistics from United States College Board show that Chinese language is becoming the third largest language following Spanish and French in the preparation courses exams for colleges. Some students who study in China may feel that Chinese language education is changing the prospect of future foreign language education in the future.

At the same time, the Chinese language education in the United States is influencing the study and life of the American who learn Mandarin Chinese. In the Chinese language courses of Montgomery Bell Academy in Tennessee, there are many activities are held for gaining the interest of Chinese language learning.

The theme of one of the activities is “Chinese tourism promotion”. In this activity, they students who in learn Mandarin first choose a city in China and introduce the tourists attractions of the city, including travel lines, means of transportation, snaps and accommodations. It is beneficial for them to acquire Chinese language in the process of knowing more about China.

This is my second time coming. Last year, I also came for about 12 weeks. This time I came for 13 weeks. The reason why I particularly want to come to this school was because of the one-on-one classes. I was able to increase my level and learn more quickly than group classes. If I have a chance again to come next year, I certainly will.

It has been notable because I have met a lot of people who I met first time last year like me to come back to Keats this year. The teaching has been fantastic. The teachers carefully prepare each lesson. I think this one-on-one approach is really a great way perhaps anyway to rapidly increase your level of Chinese and increase your confidence and fluency with the language.

My name is Sarah Fish. I am 81. I knew very little Chinese when I arrived. How was I going to survive 2 weeks of intensive Chinese? I have to laugh when I think of that now. What a positive experience this has been! I really wish we could be here a little longer. The teachers are extremely encouraging, evaluating first how much someone knows, and then starting from there.

I really enjoy coming here because it is like kind of a home for me. It is a great great environment to learn Chinese and meet great people from all over the world. Every one here is extremely friendly. Kunming has a really nice climate. It is a very good mix of modern city and also a lot of historic Chinese culture. Probably got the cleanest air in China and possibly the cleanest water too. I invite you to come.

I have 2 teachers, and I do 4 hours a day. So I have got Dong Laoshi and Jin Laoshi. Both of them are very good. They made the experience very nice to me. They are willing to help you whenever, so if you ever have a question here, the teachers are always there to help you whether it is visas, whether it is getting around the city. Everyone wants to talk to you.
