Chinese Immersion Forum
August 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
The Confucius Institute at the Michigan State University (CI-MSU) and the Chinese Early Language and Immersion Network (CELIN) at the Asia Society collaborate to offer you this forum.
Our aim is to bring together educators at school, district, state, and national levels; teacher developers; policy makers; community members; and researchers to hear about and share strategies and successes, seek advice in addressing challenges, and network with and learn from each other.
For more information and registration, visit the CI-MSU website.
