Abstract:

Since China is playing an important role in globalized politics, business, industry, and culture, the interest in learning Chinese language and culture has never been greater. At present, over 40 million people around the world are learning Chinese, and the number is growing fast due to the increasing opportunities in Chinese work place and business market. The paper examines Chinese language and cultural education as a new educational phenomenon in North America and its new tendency toward integrating Eastern and Western culture and education into the language teaching. Particularly, the paper will share the researcher’s experiences of how to incorporate both Eastern and Western educational theories and methods into her teaching and management when she taught Chinese language and culture in an American public school as a Chinese teacher, managed a Chinese school as a principal, and designed Chinese language and culture curricula in a Confucius Institute as an administrator. The problems, issues, and challenges we are facing in Chinese language and cultural education will also be discussed. We hope the research can explore an innovative and effective way to teach Chinese as a second language. We also hope that through integrating Eastern and Western education traditions into language learning and teaching we can build intercultural respect and understanding which will eventually make contributions to constructing a multicultural, harmonious, and peaceful world.
