The realm of online international Chinese language teaching is undergoing significant transformations propelled by the internet and the pandemic. The digital teaching is the way forward for online international Chinese language teaching. There are significant differences between online international Chinese language teaching and traditional Chinese language teaching. To improve online teaching activities and guide future research, this growing field aims to analyze Chinese international online education research. Specifically, the goal is to develop a sustainable teaching model. By utilizing Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Protocol (PRISMA-P), the authors analyzed 27 articles proposing a viable teaching model. The review identifies six models of online Chinese language teaching: flipped classroom, APP software, open online platform, online interaction, blended learning, and ChatGPT. The blended learning model is considered the most effective but still faces limitations such as technical issues, demanding teachers, lack of motivation, limited face-to-face interaction, and limited assessment options. Scholars suggest solutions including technical support, teacher training, motivation, improving face-to-face interaction, and using multiple assessment methods. Overall, the blended teaching model has the potential to advance online international Chinese language teaching in the future.
