Theoretical Exploration and Practice of China’s National Conditions Education for International Students in China

Jianwei Xie, Xiaoshang Wang


To guide international students to tell the Chinese story well is one of the main purposes of international student education in China. The education in China’s national conditions is an important means to achieve this goal. Based on the “input theory” and “output-driven theory”, this paper proposed the programme of China’s national conditions education for international students. This study identified the learning process into three phases: input of China’s national conditions, establishment of affective commitment, output of China’s national conditions. By literature review, this paper summarized the existing problems of China’s national conditions education, and put forward suggestions to the government and higher education institutions to promote the teaching efficacy, including strengthening the construction of curriculum and teaching staff, and providing comprehensive consulting services to international students.
