Welcome to Center for International Foreign Language Teacher Education

If any word can capture the essence of the world today, it is ‘change.’ And the changes are rapid, making the world fluid rather than rigidly divided, as in earlier times, creating both opportunities and tensions. As citizens of today’s world continue to interact in virtual and physical social, economic, and political arenas, the demands for the ability to speak additional languages have only grown dire, day-by-day. Evidently, as a predominant medium of communication, foreign language is key not only to improving the life quality of mankind but also in resolving political and economic conflicts thereby promoting peace and prosperity worldwide.

The Center’s core mission is two-fold:

a) promote and enact top-notch teacher training activities, effectively addressing critical demands for qualified teachers of Chinese and English, especially in Asia, the Middle East, South America and the US;

b) pursue classroom-based inquiries that would enrich the Center’s teacher-training activities and contribute more broadly to the general understanding of foreign language learning and teacher preparation.
