Project Description: The purpose of this project is to provide a teacher training program for Chinese teachers of English in primary and/or middle schools. The program will include elements of oral English development as well as best practices in second language teaching methodology. Methods should be explained, modeled, and applied to the teachers’ context as much as possible. The program’s objectives are to help these teachers become better teachers of English through the specific training given and to encourage them and help them value their own career as a teacher. Volunteers should expect to teach English from 9-12 and 2-4 M-F, with possible evening classes and weekend activities.
