1.      Announcement

 

Huaxia Chinese School (HXCS) will hold its annual Teachers Conference on November 16 and 17, 2013 at DoubleTree by Hilton Somerset Hotel and Conference Center, 200 Atrium Drive, Somerset, New Jersey, 08873. (http://tinyurl.com/lw7qpmj)

 

Established in 1995 as a non-profit organization, HXCS is dedicated to teaching Chinese language (Mandarin) and Chinese culture using simplified Chinese characters and Pin Yin (Chinese phonic system). Being the largest of its kind in the United States, the school consists of 20 branches, serving over 7,000 students in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. For more information about HXCS, please visit our web site at www.hxcs.org.

This will be the third year in a row for Huaxia to hold the conference in two day format. The previous two conferences were very well received by HXCS teachers and attendees from other educational institutions alike. With nearly 400 people attending each year, the conference has become a must-go event for people interested in Chinese teaching across the country.

 

We will offer the same high quality programs over the two day period. This year’s theme will be around the enrichment of cultural elements and enhancement of classroom teaching skills. Speakers will include many renowned education experts and experienced teachers. There will also be plenty of opportunities for attendees to socialize and exchange ideas. By giving considerations to people who need to travel long distance, the conference will start on Saturday afternoon, and end on Sunday afternoon.

 

Whether you are a teacher of weekend Chinese school or at a school district, a curriculum director, an administrator, a private tutor, or a parent of Chinese learning students, this event will bring you up-to-date on recent development and best practices in teaching Chinese language and culture. We sincerely hope you will join us for the two days of intense while fun-filled activities.
