Director Prof Jiaxin Xie and Co-director Prof Chengnian Wu hosted the breakout session and shared their academic insights and research. CISFSU extended cordial invitation to forum participants to the 2016 conference to be held in SF State.

        将汉语作为第二语言和外语的教学建立于扎实的语言学研究之上,将语言学的先进研究成果转化应用于汉语教学之中,是提升汉语教学水准和品质之所必需,也是以赵元任先生为代表的现代汉语语言学与汉语教学开拓者所确立的优秀传统。 第一届“语言学与汉语教学国际论坛”(IFOLICE-1)由加州大学戴维斯分校与哥伦比亚大学共同主办,于2015年5月9-10日在加州大学戴维斯分校举行。本届论坛吸引了来自20多个国家和地区的专家,陆俭明、马真、周质平、冯胜利、石定栩、孙朝奋、刘乐宁、储诚志、朱永平、周小兵、张英、赵杨、孙德金、冯丽萍、江新、叶军等海内外知名学者出席论坛并做演讲或参与点评。论坛以大会报告、分组专题报告、圆桌讨论等形式,为专家们搭建了一个分享研究心得与互动讨论的高端学术平台。


        旧金山州大孔院和下属孔子课堂老师积极支持会议、承担会务等工作,谢家新院长和吴成年院长分别主持了分组专题报告,并做了学术演讲《汉语报刊书面语特点与教学对策研究》,参与学术讨论,与参会专家学者进行广泛交流,介绍孔院中文教学与研究项目,发出2016年主办北美汉语教学研讨会的信息。旧金山州大孔院通过参加或举办高水准的学术会议,不断提升自身的学术质量与学术影响力。
