NCLC 2019: The Social Media Path to Chinese

SAN DIEGO, May 9-11 — The Chinese language is all over the Internet and some of the most vibrant social media platforms are great teachers’ aids for new students of the language. At the 2019 National Chinese Language Conference, held in San Diego, California from May 9-11, a panel discussion by a group of educators, students, and practitioners guided teachers and administrators to some of the best Chinese social media out there today. Veteran journalist and former ChinaFile editor Jonathan Landreth engaged New York-based Chinese-language YouTuber Xiao Ma (Arieh Smith), award-winning Chinese language teacher Ying Jin from Silicon Valley, and Houston-based high school student Negest Tsegaye in a lively conversation.
