responded to ACTFL’s call for organizational self-reflection and shared with ACTFL our<br />

the hybrid mode. Those in mainland China will attend the conference in person, and<br />

those outside mainland China can attend the conference either online synchronously or<br />

in person if possible. The Conference will be hosted by Shanxi University and the<br />

University of Vermont with the co-sponsorships of CUNY Baruch College, the<br />

University of Rhode Island, Tufts University, and Washington and Lee University.<br />

Colleagues and fellow teachers in the field of teaching Chinese to speakers of other<br />

relevant to the themes listed above. Proposals must be submitted by the <strong>January</strong> 15th, <strong>2022</strong>, deadline.<br />

Many Thanks to Middlebury Language School 明 德 中 ⽂ 学 校<br />

Dear <strong>CLTA</strong> members,<br />

<br />

We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to MIDDLEBURY LANGUAGE<br />

SCHOOL 明 德 中 ⽂ 学 校 for their generous donation and constant support of <strong>CLTA</strong><br />

events for the benefit of our <strong>CLTA</strong> members and communities. Below is some brief<br />

Best Wishes,<br />

<br />

<strong>CLTA</strong> Headquarters<br />

Middlebury Chinese School 明 德 ⼤ 学 中 ⽂ is a renowned language immersion program<br />

for college students and adults with over 50 years of history. Two programs run on<br />

campus each summer: an 8-week language intensive offering levels from beginner to<br />

advanced, and a Master's degree program that students complete across multiple<br />

summers.<br />

The 8-week language intensive helps students make immense gains in their Chinese<br />

language progress in a short time, no matter what their level is at the beginning of the<br />

summer. Watch this short video from a former Level 1 student to see why she called the<br />

experience "incredibly rewarding." The program is an ideal springboard for students<br />

before they embark on a study abroad program or internship, or as an alternative to<br />

study abroad for some students.<br />

<strong>CLTA</strong> <strong>Newsletter</strong> Vol. 46 No. 1


The Master's program prepares Chinese language teachers for both K-12 and higher<br />

education, giving graduates the knowledge they need to succeed in the areas of<br />

linguistics, culture, and pedagogy. Open to current or aspiring Chinese language<br />

educators, the MA program is a diverse group of students who take advantage of the<br />

summer environment in which they learn alongside the students in the 8-week<br />

intensive. <br />

The Master's program prepares Chinese language teachers for both K-12 and higher education,<br />

giving graduates the knowledge they need to succeed in the areas of linguistics, culture, and<br />

pedagogy. Open to current or aspiring Chinese language educators, the MA program is a diverse<br />

group of students who take advantage of the summer environment in which they learn alongside<br />

the students in the 8-week intensive. Students in the MA program have 10 years to complete their<br />

degree through a variety of flexible pathways, including summers-only options and choices that<br />

include a mix of summer and academic year study. Our MA courses are open to qualifying<br />

students who are not pursuing the MA degree.<br />

Both programs feature the Middlebury Language Pledge, so students are using Chinese at all times<br />

for communication during the program.<br />
