On November 2, 2018, a group of 8 Chinese teachers from Faithful International Training Centre headed to Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand to start a Chinese teaching trip.
Since 2014 FITC has sent five groups of Chinese teachers to teach in Northern Thailand. Each time we teaching Chinese language and culture for one week in Thai-run Chinese schools and Thai public schools. In 2016, a special team of Chinese teacher trainers was dispatched to the Otani Chinese School on the Thai-Myanmar border to train local Chinese teachers on Mandarin Pinyin teaching.
This trip we reached out to three schools in Chiang Rai City: Chiang Rai City Peace Middle School, Chinese Ark School and Chinese Charity School. The outstanding teaching ability of our Chinese teachers was praised by Peace Middle School. The school principal welcomed the teachers for the arrival and the school students all liked the teachers and didn't want us to leave.
During this one week short term teaching program , our teachers taught 84 class hours and reached out to 1900 students, from kindergarten to senior high school. They helped the students practice their oral Chinese, made the classes very fun for the students. through communicating with the local Chinese teachers there, our teachers got to know what they need in Chinese teaching and offered to give more help and support in the future. They also taught 6 classes in the Chinese Ark School.
During the short term teaching program, on the weekend, teachers from our center visited the Confucius School in Chiang Rai. They were able to attend the graduation ceremony of the Thai elementary school culture camp. They met with the president of the Confucius school and got to understand more about their school and the situation of Thai students learning Chinese.
After a week of teaching, teachers at Faithful International Training Centre brought knowledge and joy to children learning Chinese in Thailand. They also brought help and support to the local Chinese teachers. To date, Faithful International has organized training courses for thousands of Thai students in a number of schools, including Chiang Rai City Middle School, Chiang Mai Ming Lai International High School, Chiang Rai Peace High School, Princess Chiang Rai High School, Otani Chinese School and Chinese Ark School. The Chinese students received vivid and interesting Chinese lessons and wonderful cultural content. Faithful Teachers also trained dozens of Chinese teachers in Thailand and contributed to the popularization and improvement of Chinese education in Northern Thailand. Faithful International Training Centre, with more than ten years of professional experience in foreign language education, is helping the world to know more about China. We would like see more Chinese people going out to bless the world!
