Teacher to Share Trip to China
Jeannie Salomon of Barrington and the East Bay Cultural Society wants to share her experience, insights on China with you after spending a week there in December.
Will education really be the currency of the 21st century?
Jeannie Salomon of Barrington thinks so. Listen to the teacher of Chinese yourself on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 14.
Salomon recently returned from a trip to China. She will make a presentation on her experiences there at 3 pm in the Riverside library just a few minutes north of the Barrington line at 475 Bullocks Point Ave.
Salomon, the founder of the nonprofit Cultural Society of East Bay in Barrington, visited Dalian University of Foreign Languages in Dalian, a city on the Chinese coast, a week before Christmas to take part in a Chinese government-sponsored educational program for teachers of Chinese.
Now Salomon wants to tell you and show you what she experienced with dozens of other Chinese educators from North America and Mongolia. Among the questions she will answer:
- What role will education play in the future?
- Will China rise to be the next super-power?
- Where will the U.S. be in the 21st century?
“Come to share your thoughts and interests about education, China, the U.S. and the future economy,” said Salomon.
Salomon’s stay was sponsored by the Hanban/Confucius Institute, a nonprofit affiliated with the Chinese Ministry of Education to spread the teaching of Chinese culture and language overseas. Click here to see a Patch story that ran soon after Salomon returned to Barrington from China.
