Teaching Training Workshop - 2010 Each year the Office of Chinese Language Council International (also known as Hanban) sends thousands of Chinese language teachers and volunteers around the world to offer communities instruction in Chinese language and culture. But before they depart, Hanban teachers undergo intensive training in teaching Chinese as a foreign language.

Professor Chuanren KE, the Confucius Institute at the University of Iowa's Founding Director, is an expert in teaching Chinese as a foreign language and second language acquisition. In 2010 and in years prior, Professor KE has been invited by Hanban to present workshops that prepare Hanban teachers for their exciting year abroad.
