AISU & Hello World American Academy

 The partnership between AISU and 51Talk is an important step forward in the development of a shared educational ecosystem between the United States and China. This ecosystem comes to life through 51Talk’s new premium product line, Hello World American Academy. Developed in collaboration between AISU and 51Talk, it is the premier choice for Chinese children to develop their English speaking talents, as it brings real American education to each lesson.

Hello World American Academy stresses three core abilities that all twenty-first century citizens must have: critical thinking, problem solving, and analytical ability. Children who are goal-oriented and independent, innovative thinkers will be on track to become the world's top-performing global citizens with an international perspective and strong competitive edge.

 Together, we are committed to providing Chinese primary and secondary school students with a platform through which they can learn English whenever and wherever they need to, while developing an understanding of Western culture. 

 Following 51Talk’s strategic investment in AISU, this is the first of many collaborative learning initiatives that have been embarked upon. These cross-border endeavors will bridge the divide between students in both countries, and cultivate a mutual appreciation between the two cultures.
