In honor of their recently formed partnership, SPIRAL International will host a delegation of six top representatives from Beijing-based Chinese textbook and educational materials publisher Sinolingua next week.
While in Vermont, Spiral representatives will lead the Sinolingua group as they visit several local area schools to observe classes and meet with local educational staff and students.
In addition, Spiral and Sinolingua will jointly host two round table discussion dinners with local educational, community and business leaders to discuss topics ranging from methods for increasing local student interest in China-related studies, to curriculum development and current best-practice teaching methodologies, as well as potential business opportunities for local school districts and teachers in partnering to collaboratively author new Chinese-related textbooks with Sinolingua.
The representatives from Sinolingua are:
Ms. Han Hui, president of Sinolingua
Ms. Fu Mei, director of Editorial Department, Sinolingua
Ms. Han Ying, director of Acquisition Department, Sinolingua
Ms. Flora Zhang, deputy director of Overseas Department, Sinolingua
