The American Academy of International Culture and Education (AAICE) is a non-profit organization led by U.S. education experts and dedicated teachers. Employing cutting-edge teaching strategies based on solid pedagogical theory, AAICE delivers quality curricula, cooperative programs, teacher training, and teaching resource-sharing platforms. AAICE, in collaboration with quality K-16 institutions and educational organizations in China and the United States, provides teachers and students with a global learning platform that serves as a bridge between Chinese and American cultures and educational systems.
We strive to use well-grounded teaching philosophy and best practices to help American students who are passionate about learning Chinese to gain confidence in their linguistic skills and deepen their interest in Chinese language and culture. By supporting students as they develop their language proficiency, we assist them in uncovering their hidden strengths and realizing their academic and career goals.
We strive to promote Chinese language education in the U.S in a number of ways -- by strengthening Chinese language programs, improving curriculum design and assessment, and improving the overall quality of Chinese language instruction.
We strive to support international Chinese teachers by providing a wide variety of professional development opportunities, including training for pre-service and veteran teachers, technological support, sharing of pedagogy and resources, and Q & A sessions with teaching experts. These various types of support help all Chinese teachers, regardless of program type or grade level, to improve their personal teaching skills while also working collectively to develop the field of international Chinese language education.
AAICE forms a bridge to allow educators in China and the U.S. to share best teaching practices and resources. In so doing, we promote mutual understanding and help to develop Chinese language education in both countries.
Working with outstanding organizations, K12 schools, and universities in both China and the U.S., we are actively building cooperation in the areas of Chinese language education and Chinese culture. At present, we have partnerships in the U.S. with Middlebury College, the University of Maryland, San Francisco State University, Clarkson University in New York, and Seton Hall University in New Jersey. In China, we are partnering with Beijing Normal University, Beijing Language and Culture University, Zhengzhou University, and the Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press. Building bridges among these institutions, we have already successfully conducted a large number of teacher trainings, professional exchanges, and collaborative programs, including scholarship-based teacher and student programs. Teacher-focused initiatives include a US-China joint Master’s degree program, a school leadership certificate program, and a teacher training certificate program. Student programs include online language and culture courses for beginning to advanced language learners.
