Details for the FICS annual Educators Tour to China

a unique opportunity for US schools to find "perfect match" Chinese sister schools

*Register by January 21 and receive our $300 Early Bird Discount off the package price.*

Purpose: This March, FICS will bring a small group of American educators to five Chinese cities on a matchmaking expedition. This is a rare and special opportunity to find prospective partners that fit your school and to do so through personal interactions. Our customized format provides each participant with the cultural intimacy and resources necessary to find the Chinese sister school that perfectly matches specific criteria for a relationship. The tour is designed for educators who wish to learn more about Chinese culture and represent their schools to a variety of Chinese education institutions. For this reason, we keep the group size small: the participant number is limited to 10 people.

Goals of the Trip:

  • Visit Chinese classrooms and meet with principals and teachers
  • Secure ideal sister school relationships with Chinese high schools
  • Meet with prospective students and their families
  • Network with teachers to plan joint projects
  • Reception with US embassy personnel and Chinese Government Officials

Method: In Chinese culture, face-to-face interaction is a key ingredient for successful global relationships. FICS will facilitate these interactions with a wide range of schools, students, teachers, and administrators. Our top-notch translators will ensure easy and productive communication. Moreover, our cultural excursions will introduce participants to the rapidly changing China of today.
