This chapter examines the concept of the Chinese University Teacher Training in English (CUTE) project, a flexible approach for integrating online and face-to-face (F2F) support for language learning. This project is one of the component projects of the eChina-UK Programme and it aims to develop a course which will enable Chinese teachers to teach their specialist subjects in English and to participate effectively in academic exchange. This chapter discusses the initial pilot phase of the CUTE Project which explored an integrated online/F2F approach to language learning.
