About China Learning Initiatives

As the United States and China negotiate their complex geopolitical relationship, developing cultural and linguistic understanding between these two world powers is more important than ever. We must cultivate American students who are familiar with China and Chinese students who are comfortable with the United States, so that as our two countries become more intertwined, and the relationship is based upon trust and effective communication.

To this end, China Learning Initiatives strategizes and executes a multitude of projects that aim at making Mandarin language learning mainstream, and generating engaging, relevant, and approachable content about China for the American public.
