Promoting Ethnic Studies in China through Emphasis on English Teacher Training.
Schnell, James A.
This paper describes how the Chinese educational system promotes ethnic studies programming. The Chinese approach differs from approaches in the United States as the Chinese promote ethnic studies primarily through English teacher education programs. Since the opening of China, the teaching of English has been a priority in Chinese education. Students not only learn the English language, but also study the cultures and ethnic groups who are native speakers of English. Thus, the English language and English-speaking cultures are simultaneously emphasized in English teacher training. This approach provides a cross-cultural understanding of both language and culture.
