SSU Grads Head for Unique Teaching Adventure in China
A group of eight Sonoma State graduates are embarking on a unique teaching and learning adventure in Shanghai, China this month.
Sonoma State American Language Institute has partnered with Shanghai Sanda Institute to offer members of the University community the opportunity to teach English to college students for an academic year at the Sanda Institute, a technological university in Shanghai.
This first group of eight students leaves in August to teach Sanda Institute students English oral skills such as listening, speaking and pronunciation, while immersing themselves in a vibrant Asian culture.
As part of the agreement between Sanda Institute and Sonoma State University, the students are compensated for teaching 16 hours per week with a transportation allowance, housing, meals and stipend and given a tuition waiver to attend classes.
"I am very excited to experience the amazingly rich culture of
China," says one of the China-bound teachers, Eileen O'Brien. "This
will truly be a life-altering experience."
The students will be able to learn more about Chinese culture by taking
courses at Sanda Institute, studying subjects such as Chinese language,
culture, economy and law.
