Founded in 1977, the Colorado China Council (CCC) is a not-for-profit, non-political, educational outreach organization dedicated to developing programs to deepen the American public's understanding and appreciation of China's history, culture and contemporary life. CCC does this by sending people from North America to China to teach English, as well as other subjects, at Chinese universities. As a teacher you will also share American history and culture with your Chinese students.
CCC has placed over 700 teachers, making it one of the U.S.'s largest non-religious providers of teachers to China. Right now we are accepting applications for the 2014-2015 Program.
Knowledge of Chinese language is not a prerequisite.
Teacher Andrew Orr praises China's exceptional students and the teaching-abroad experience as a whole: "Coming here to China to live here, to teach English here, has been the greatest experience of my life. It has been the best decision that I have ever made in my life."
Edited by CCC Executive Director Alice Renouf and one of CCC's former teachers, professional writer and editor Mary Beth Ryan-Maher, this unique collection of letters offers a rarely seen, intimate, and refreshingly honest view of living and working in China. Here, ordinary peopleórecent college graduates, teachers, professors, engineers, lawyers, computer whizzes, and parentsórecount their experiences in venues ranging from classrooms to marketplaces to holy mountains.
