North Central College proposes a student and teacher combination program for 2019. The student program will be a hybrid, 13-day, non-residential program with two levels of classes: the Level One (novice-mid) program being titled "Journey to China,” and the Level Two (novice-high) program, titled “Working Together with China.” Up to 20 high school students will be enrolled in the program, which will consist of eight hours of daily online or on-site instruction and activities, with some additional excursions and opportunities to practice learned skills for a total of 96 hours of instructional time. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will have earned a certificate and be able to demonstrate competence in the three modes of communication, as defined by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL): interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational communication in Chinese.
