American Councils for International Education is pleased to announce the 2013 Intensive Summer Language Institute in Changchun, China. The Intensive Summer Language Institute provides fully funded fellowships for non-native speakers of Chinese who are teaching Mandarin to spend six weeks overseas studying intermediate and advanced-level Chinese at Northeast Normal University. Fellowships are available to current K-12 teachers and community college instructors of Mandarin Chinese, as well as to students enrolled in education programs who intend to teach Mandarin. This U.S. Government sponsored language program is funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State and implemented by American Councils for International Education.

Participants in the Intensive Summer Language Institute receive ten hours of graduate credit through Bryn Mawr College. Previous program participants have taken good advantage of the Summer Language Institute’s many opportunities for curriculum building, networking and professional development. The site in Northeast China is highly conducive to language learning and provides a myriad of activities to encourage language acquisition through cultural immersion. In addition to daily intensive language training, participants enjoy cultural activities and excursions designed to reinforce classroom material.

The program application, benefits, and detailed application instructions are located online athttp://www.americancouncils.org/isli. In addition to the online form, applicants are asked to provide official transcripts and two reference letters. All materials are due on February 11, 2013.
