Chinese Language Partnership

The Chinese Language Partnership is a language exchange program dedicated to connect Chinese language learners with Chinese international students at the College of William and Mary. This program is a joint effort of the Chinese Studies Program and the Chinese Undergraduate Students Association (CUSA), sponsored by the William & Mary Confucius Institute. By connecting Chinese language learners with native speakers on a one-on-one basis, we aim to help Chinese language learners to gain a richer language experience, and to help Chinese international students to get more involved in the community as well as to improve their English communication skills. We also hope that the Chinese Language Partnership program will serve as an important platform for building global friendship. You can find our more at their website here.

Normally, our sign-up forms open every September, and we will have our information session by the end of September, where you will be able to meet your language partner.
