About China Learning Initiatives

As the United States and China negotiate their complex geopolitical relationship, developing cultural and linguistic understanding between the people of these two world powers is more important than ever. We must cultivate American and Chinese students who are familiar and comfortable with each other’s society, history, language and culture. That way, as our two countries become more intertwined, the relationship can develop on the foundation of trust and effective communication. To this end, China Learning Initiatives strategizes and executes a multitude of projects aimed at making Mandarin language learning in the US mainstream, and generating engaging, relevant, and approachable learning content about China for the American public.
