2013 World Languages and Chinese Language Conferences

MaFLA exhibit

The Year of the Snake has begun and we are off to another exciting year here at Better Chinese. I’ve been working here for a little over a year now and one of my favorite parts of my job is getting the chance to meet teachers and administrators at the various language conferences around the world. I learn so much about how our products are being used and what can improved. Below is a list of the conferences that we will be attending in 2013.

    Do any of these conferences welcome non-profit institutions i.e, provide a subsidy to cover air fare, accommodation etc?

      Hi School of Chinese Language,

      Yes, some of these conferences do welcome non-profit institutions. They often offer a reduced registration price, but I don’t know whether they would help with airfare and hotel. You should definitely reach out though and see.

      Best,
      Esther
