Teacher Training Institute

The WUSTL-ALLEX Chinese and Japanese Teacher Training Institute is an intensive course for current teachers of Chinese and Japanese or those who plan to enter the field held each summer at Washington University in St. Louis.

The program provides the foundation for a future instructor to teach Chinese or Japanese and gives substantial tools to current teachers to reinforce and strengthen their programs. Effective methodology in teaching Chinese and Japanese to North Americans is emphasized over a theoretical analysis of the languages. The program is administered by the ALLEX Teacher Training Consortium (Cornell, Ohio State, Portland State, and Washington University).
