普林斯顿暑期北京中文培训班 (Princeton-in-Beijing) 是1993年在北京师范大学成立的，2022年将迎来成立30周年的庆典。在过去28年里，我们培训了约4000名来自世界各地的汉语学习者，和大约1800名汉语教学的专业老师。
To the Teachers, Students, and Alumni of Princeton-in-Beijing:
Princeton-in-Beijing was established at Beijing Normal University in 1993, and in 2022, we will mark the 30-year anniversary with a celebration. Over the past 28 years, we have trained around 4,000 Chinese language learners from all over the world, along with around 1,800 teachers of various Chinese teaching backgrounds. These five or six thousand strong are now thriving in all corners of the world, engaged in careers that span countless fields.
While our ages, careers, and locations may be different, what we all have in common is a summer spent together at Beijing Normal University – during those hot and engaging days, together we strived to learn and teach Chinese well. For cohort after cohort of outstanding international undergraduate and graduate students, a Chinese-speaking utopia was created. Every summer, this utopia held endless joy and excitement, along with no shortage of frustration and melancholy. Yet hopefully, over time, the hardships have turned into fond memories. Summers at Beijing Normal University will forever hold our achievements, our dreams, and our love!
At the end of April 2022, we plan to hold an expanded International Conference on Chinese Language Instruction, as well as edit and publish a commemorative collection of essays. We ask all of you to draft essays, to recollect and reflect on your Princeton-in-Beijing experiences. Say all that you would like to say; in any form and manner. Essays can be in Chinese or English, and there are no restrictions to length, content, and style. In addition, include your favorite photos taken during your time at Princeton-in-Beijing. We will share submitted works on the Princeton-in-Beijing website, and create a book before April 2022.
With endless gratitude, I eagerly await your masterpieces and photographs. Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
