ABOUT BCLTS

 

Brief Introduction of BCLTS

 

The British Chinese Language Teaching Society (BCLTS) is a nonprofit academic organisation of Chinese language teachers from UK universities. It is a sub-group of the British Association for Chinese Studies (BACS). The primary role of the Society is to work to enhance the quality of teaching Chinese as a second language at HE level, and to promote research into international Chinese education. In addition, it offers networking opportunities to those Chinese language teachers all over the world. BCLTS has in recent years begun to publish edited volume of conference proceedings based on a selection of papers delivered at the annual conference. This provides a showcase for research into Chinese language teaching in UK and other countries, and is part of BCLTS work in linking local teachers with peer colleagues in other parts of the world. The Society is managed by the committee officers elected by members at annual general meetings. Currently it has around 80 members from 30 UK universities which offer Chinese language courses.

 

Since it was founded in 1997 at Oxford University, the Society has received tremendous supports from Universities’ China Committee in London (UCCL), China Hanban, Education Section of the Chinese Embassy in UK, Cypress Books, and many UK universities with their subordinate Confucius Institutes. We have successfully organised twelve annual conferences on international Chinese pedagogy up to now.

 

In order to promote research into Chinese language teaching, the Society encourages all its members to submit research papers to the conference, and will give some funding support for the member’ travel and accommodation costs if his/her paper has been accepted for presenting in the conference. Meanwhile, the annual conference provide a wonderful opportunity for local and international scholars and professionals to exchange their cutting-edge research and practical teaching experiences concerning international Chinese teaching and learning in Higher Education.

 

 

英国汉语教学研究会简介

 

英国汉语教学研究会隶属英国汉学学会,是英国大学汉语教师的非营利性学术组织,其主要职能是帮助英国高校汉语教师提高汉语作为第二语言的教学水平和科研能力。此外,研究会还为全球范围的高校汉语教师提供了交流信息的机会和分享经验的平台。近年来,研究会每年选取年会中所发表的优秀论文,结集成书,正式出版会议论文集。通过这种方式,一方面呈现英国及其他国家国际汉语教学的研究成果,同时也和学界同行们进行学术探讨。本研究会设立执行委员会负责管理日常事务,执委由会员大会选举产生。研究会现有会员80多名,分别来自英国30余所开设汉语课程的大学。

 

研究会自1997年在牛津大学成立以来,得到了英国大学中国委员会、中国国家汉办、中国驻英使馆教育处、常青出版社、多所英国大学及其下属孔子学院的大力支持,迄今已成功举办了12届国际汉语教学年会。

 

为了促进汉语教学的学术研究,研究会鼓励其会员向年会递交论文。所有在年会上宣读论文的会员,研究会将给予一定的旅费补助并提供会议期间的住宿。年会的召开不仅为英国本土的汉语教师提供了交流平台,也吸引了世界各地国际汉语教学的同行们参与讨论。
