During the academic year, Chinese and Egyptian exchange teachers will team-teach with U.S. teachers in K-12 schools that already have established programs in either Chinese or Arabic. In addition to providing language instruction, the international teachers will serve as cultural resources on their home countries in history, geography, social studies and other relevant classes in the U.S. schools. Overall, the program fosters an exchange of critical languages, develops cultural awareness, sensitivity, and appreciation, and promotes educational networks among teachers and students from China, Egypt, and the United States.
