About the College Board Chinese Language and Culture Initiatives
The College Board launched the Chinese Language and Culture Initiatives to help support the growth of Chinese education in U.S. schools and to build a solid foundation for the AP Chinese program. We offer programs to serve schools, administrators, and teachers.
Register for a professional development webinar to enhance your teaching skills or strengthen your Chinese program. A variety of topics are offered through three strands of focused webinars to new and veteran Chinese language teachers and school administrators. Webinars are offered to participants at no cost.
Bring native speakers and authentic cultural resources to your school and community. Through this program, you can host an experienced language teacher from China for one to three years. The Chinese Guest Teacher Program allows U.S. accredited K–12 schools and districts to start or expand Chinese programs efficiently and affordably.
