China - Science Across the World in Beijing

Science Across the World in Beijing, March 2004
Teaching Science Through English

English as a Medium of Instruction
The Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy in Beijing is setting up a project for Science teachers working through the medium of English, English teachers and materials developers. As part of this initiative three days of workshops were carried out exploring the issues involved in teaching content through the medium of English from March 16-18, 2004 at the High School Affiliated to Beijing Normal University in the heart of Beijing, China.
 
At the heart of the workshops was the introduction of Science Across the World and the opportunities the programme offers to teachers and students to communicate on Science issues with teachers and students in countries around the world.

Special thanks also to Helen Halligan and An Xiaodan of the Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy in Beijing for their faultless organisation and coordination of the whole event. I am certain that this initiative will lead to a wonderful partnership for Science Across the World and the teachers of China!
