Learn Mandarin Online from Teachers and Students
For the 101st blog post on StudyMoreChinese, I decided to do something good for a change & feature Andrea Liu & Kevin Li (pictured) who co-founded the Washington Association for Chinese Education (WACE).
They have been working to promote Chinese education in the Washington area. If you are a student in Washington you can enter their recently-launched contest:
"Why Learn Chinese Competition" is an written/visual submission-based competition that will take place this fall. Students all over Washington can enter for a chance to win an iPad 2 or the cash equivalent by creatively answering the question:
"Why should we, students in America, be learning Chinese?"
Since most members here are not Washington students you can still help by adding your own reasons for learning Chinese in the comments below. You can find their list of reasons here:
About WACE from their site:
Washington Association for Chinese Education (WACE) is a student-run, nonprofit organization dedicated to generating interest in learning Chinese, helping students understand China, and increasing the number of Chinese programs in Washington schools. We are the only organization of our kind in the Pacific Northwest. Founded by a group of enthusiastic high school students in March 2011 from an idea that stemmed out of the Chinese Cultural Club at Skyline High School, WACE now spans across six schools and four school districts. We have received support from over 500 members of the community through event participation and signatures for our petition to bring Chinese into more Washington schools.
