Thanks to the development of global economy, Chinese spoken by a population of 1.3 billion attracts increasingly more attention from the world where English is the most influential international language. For more than 20 years, the Chinese government has been dedicated to promoting a steady policy of opening up to the outside world so that China has a rising status in political and economic fields, and draws more and more attention from foreign friends. With great support and promotion by the Chinese government, the global Chinese fever becomes an inevitable trend. Driven by the Chinese fever, the global demand for Chinese teachers also grows rapidly. There are about thirty to forty million Chinese learners in the whole world, but the number of TCFL teachers is only around 40,000, which means the proportion of students to teachers is approximately 1000:1. Carrying the mission of propagating Chinese culture, TCFL has become an exalted and high-income occupation.
With the rich educational and human resources of Tsinghua University and the great support and attention of the National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Second Language, Beijing Tsinghua Unis Trailblazer Chinese Culture International Promotion Co., Ltd reckoned with the Chinese fever, and formed a TCFL training industry that integrates R&D, training, and teaching and educational management. As the company’s principal product and brand, Quick Chinese has entered global Chinese training market. Based on China, it has set up dozens of direct and franchise schools in Korea, Japan, Singapore, Thailand and France, and established partnership with several tens of famous colleges of the UK, France, Thailand, Singapore, the US, Australia and New Zealand. Every year, Beijing Tsinghua Unis Trailblazer Chinese Culture International Promotion Co., Ltd would dispatch dozens of Quick Chinese teachers for the above countries and regions.
To improve the teaching level of Chinese TCFL teachers and meet demands of Quick Chinese’s direct and franchise schools and partners across the world for TCFL teachers, Beijing Tsinghua Unis Trailblazer Chinese Culture International Promotion Co., Ltd established teacher training bases in Beijing, Xi’an and He’nan, and based on the Quick Chinese teaching method, the company spent a huge sum of money in building Quick Chinese teacher training courses and certification system, and invited most notable experts in TCFL at home and abroad to give lessons.
Besides necessary basic teaching knowledge, Quick Chinese teacher training mainly imparts Quick China’s original language sense teaching method which emphasizes teachers’ expression power in classes and ability to interact with students for the improvement of practical classroom teaching skills. The combination of lecturing and commenting on trial teaching provide students opportunity to put what they’ve learned into practice. Meanwhile, excellent students will be elected to teach at direct and franchise schools and cooperative organizations of Quick Chinese at home and abroad.
