About This Organizer

Two-way US-China Education, Language, Cultural Exchanges

-- The Name You Trust Since 2003 

 

Sino Language & Beyond (SLB) has been dedicated in promoting language & cultural exchange for young people between China and the U.S. since 2003. We believes learning a language in the country in which it is spoken is absolutely a far more effective and rapid process than studying a few hours a week in your own country. It is also an opportunity to mix with local inhabitants, come to a far deeper and intimate knowledge of the people whose language you are studying and gain insights into their culture.

 

We draw on a long-term presence in both China and the U.S, close connections with the local society, and deep understanding of the intercultural, health, and safety issues inherent to study in another country. 


Our programs are designed to provide excellence in language study with ample of opportunities to interact with local children and teens and to reflect on the intercultural encounters in structured settings. We make sure what you have learned is not just a theory, but a practical ability to communicate in the language, to understand and to make yourself understood.

 

For students:

Currently three summer programs are offered in China for students around the globe.

1. Chinese Language & Culture Immersion in China (LCB)

2. Teen Leadership & Service in China (CSB)

For schools:

In addition to summer programs, SLB also provide customized trips to China for US middle and high schools as a way to enhance student's  language study.

 

For educators:
