Applications due Feb. 1 for teaching opportunity in China
Friday, January 29th, 2010
Feb. 1 is the deadline for applications from Lawrence Tech for the Teach Abroad in China program, which is designed to bring native English speakers to China to teach English to middle school-aged Chinese students. The teacher’s role is to teach American culture and build students’ confidence in speaking English by focusing on daily topics of interest.
The program is organized and led by CCE China, which specializes in cultural and educational programs and exchanges between China and the United States. The opportunity is open to all Lawrence Tech students, faculty, and staff. This is a fantastic international experience that is low-cost and a great resume builder.
During this program, participants will teach in a team of two and have their own classes of 25-45 students. They will develop their own curriculum to teach your students vocabulary and engage in several cultural activities.
The program will take place for three weeks during July 2010. Program fees have been reduced to $200 and include roundtrip airfare from LA to Shanghai, ground transportation, meals, and lodging while in China. Additional costs include the flight to LA, passport, visa, spending money, Shanghai and Beijing excursions, and vaccinations (if needed).
Applications with a $200 program fee (payable to CCE China) are due by Feb. 1. Application packets can be picked up on the bulletin board outside the Office of Leadership Programs in the Taubman Center (C205).
