大家好,
我叫左婧,我来自中国一个美丽的城市—成都。2009年从辽宁石油化工大学硕士毕业。我在大学期间,一直协助教授的本科教学工作。从那时起,我爱上了教学。从此也与教学结上了不解之缘。与其说教学是我的工作,不如说它是我生命的一部分。与年轻的学生们在一起,我觉得我的青春从未走远,我的热情从未消散。
我爱我的学生,我希望用我自己爱学生的方式教会学生们如何去爱这个世界。一个内心充满爱的人,他的人生也将会被爱包围。我总是会微笑的面对每一位学生,用鼓励的方式代替惩罚。

我鼓励我的学生质疑我,而不是单一的接受我传达给他们的知识。让他们在质疑中思考,养成主动学习的习惯。

我会用不同的教学方法吸引学生,增加学生们的参与性,让学生成为课堂的主角。游戏,音乐,手工等各种活动让每一个课堂变为一次多姿多彩的中文之旅。每次学生来到我的课堂,总会有新的发现。让学生们深深地爱上中文课,爱上学中文,从被动的学习变为主动的学习。我也更愿意跟学生成为朋友而不是师傅,与他们一起分享我所有的知识。

自从我加入快乐学汉语以来,从事过小小班,中级班和成人班的教学,获得了很多宝贵的教学经验。快乐学汉语是一个专业的中文培训机构。这里的老师都是有很高的专业知识,并且是十分友好和有着极大教学热情的。我为能成为他们中一员而感到骄傲!

Hello everyone,

I called Zuo Jing, I am from a beautiful city in China – Chengdu. In 2009 I graduated from the Liaoning Shihua University of Master degree. During my undergraduate years, I had been working as a teaching assistant. Since then, I have fallen in love with teaching. From then I had a strong bond with teaching. It is not so much that teaching is my job, it is better to say that it is part of my life. With young students, I think my youth has never gone far, my enthusiasm has never dissipated.

I love my students and I want to teach my students how to love this world in my own way. A heart full of love, his life will be surrounded by love. I will always smile to face every student, with the way of encouragement instead of punishment.

I encourage my students to question me, rather than accepting the knowledge that I convey to them. Let them think in questions, to develop the habit of active learning.

I will use different teaching methods to attract students, increase the participation of students, so that students become the protagonist of the classroom. Games, music, hand and other activities so that each classroom session transforms into a colourful trip to the China. Every time a student comes to my class, there is always something new to discover so that we can ensure that students are deeply in love with Chinese classes, love to learn Chinese and switch from passive learning into active learning. I am also more willing to become friends with the students rather than the master to share all my knowledge.

Since I joined the Happy Mandarin Chinese Language Training, I have been engaged in teaching children classes, intermediate classes and adult classes and have gained a lot of valuable teaching experience. Happy Mandarin is a very professional Chinese training institution. The teachers have very high professional knowledge, are very friendly and have a great enthusiasm for teaching. I am proud to be part of the team!

教学,教来自老师,学来自学生,但教和学又密不可分。浓厚的兴趣,能加强学生学习的积极性,培养学生的探索精神,开发学生的创造能力,让学生最有效率地学习,但是,怎样培养学生浓厚的兴趣,这是我在教学工作中一直思考和总结的问题。

作为一名对外汉语老师,我遵循的教学原则是直观、启发、适应、渐进,和巩固性原则。汉语教学,大致分为语音、汉字、词汇、语法、课文、汉语知识与能力、以及中华文化知识等。针对不同的知识板块,有不同的展示方法。

例如语音教学,我会用图表、发音示范、口型展示,结合发音部位图或者用双手模拟发音器官的方式来介绍给学生,此外,利用汉语的语音系统与英文的语音系统进行对比,指出两者的差别,便于学生突破难点。

再如汉字教学,我会采取看图识字、板书出字、卡片示字、以旧带新等方式来展示。汉字是象形文字,可以依形释字、解字,大约80%的汉字都是形声字,所以还可用已学过的汉字类推出新字的字音和字义。

词汇和汉字的教学可以是同步进行的,词汇教学有:展示生词、解释生词、练习生词三个步骤,展示生词我会利用实物、图片、生词卡片等,课堂上采取领读、认读、听写等方法;解释生词我会选取学生熟悉或亲自经历的事例设定具体语言环境或例句,让学生在实际应用中体会理解词义;练习生词,我会通过用指定的词语提问、引导学生回答、造句,对话等方式帮助学生掌握。

我会对词汇分级,一般按照“常用先学”和“急用先学”的原则来进行教学,例如“想/想念/思念/怀念”这四个词,都有相同的意思,但教学的顺序会有先后之分。

学习词语之后,随之而来的就是词语的使用,词与词的搭配问题,讲解名词时要注意“数量名”的搭配,讲解形容词和动词时要注意与名词的搭配,汉语词语的构成与句子基本一致,学好了词组,对生成句子会有帮助。

随着学生词汇量不断扩大,学生会很自然地把已经学过的词语联系起来,词语之间的混淆问题会越来越多,针对近义词、多义词、多音多义词等,我会有针对性地采取比较法、归纳法、举例法等帮助学生攻克难点。

在进入语法教学阶段之后,必须让学生了解汉语语法的主要特点,语序对表达语义的作用,虚词的运用对语义的影响。我的教学总原则是精讲活练,用最通俗易懂的语言或直观形象的方法作解释,善于设置情景、运用对比,针对课文教学板块的特点,深入浅出地教学。

对于课文教学,根据教学对象的水平,初级阶段主要使用对话体课文,对话体语篇设置了场景,模拟人物对话,更符合学生的日常交流习惯,更能激发学生的学习兴趣,我一般会利用“问”的形式不断引导,让学生分小步学习,从老师先跟学生对话,然后让学生跟学生对话,不断温习与重复,循序渐进地巩固所学;中高级阶段可把对话体课文变为叙述体课文,我一般会采取老师说学生听、老师提问学生回答、老师用PPT文字展示让学生齐读,然后让单个学生读,最后让学生复述的方式来教学。

根据教学对象的年龄和特点,针对儿童,我会根据他们的心理特点设置大量的游戏、角色扮演,加入儿歌、谜语、与歌曲等朗朗上口的教学体裁,尽量多地运用身体语言,吸引学生的注意,整个课堂互动、欢乐、有序;针对青少年,我也会设置适合他们的年龄特点的游戏,增加诗歌,寓言故事和中华文化知识的讲解;针对成人,我也有适合他们的学习习惯的授课方式。

对于学生的风格不同,我会有针对性地采用不同的方式引导,有的学生属于沉思型,他们总是谨慎、全面地检查各种假设,在确认没有问题的情况下才会给出答案;有的学生属于冲动型,他们总是急于给出问题的答案,甚至有时尚示搞清问题要求时,就开始对问题进行回答,老师们教过的班级,都会有沉思型和冲动型学生的踪影,我为了避免冲动型学生打断沉思型学生的思维,有时会采用轮流回答问题的方法。

总之,无论面对什么学生,教授什么类型的课程,以下几点都是我一直秉持的教学态度:课前充分准备、课后总结、钻研各类教材、考虑教法积极创新、参与听课评课、不断提升自己。

期待在快乐学汉语与您共度一段美妙的汉语学习之旅!

Teaching and learning are inseparable. At Happy Mandarin we instill strong interest in the students to build up their enthusiasm and drive to learn, cultivate their love to explore, learn efficiently and develop their creative abilities, so that students learn the most efficient.

As a teacher of Chinese as a foreign language, the principles of teaching I follow are intuitive, enlightening, adaptive, progressive, and consolidated. Chinese teaching is roughly divided into voice, Chinese characters, vocabulary, grammar, text, Chinese knowledge and ability, and Chinese culture knowledge.

For voice teaching, I will use charts, pronunciation demonstrations, mouth displays combined with the pronunciation of the site map or with hand gestures to simulate the pronunciation and introduce it to the students. In addition, I will demonstrate the differences of the Chinese voice system and English voice system and use the differences to break through the difficulties.

Another example is the teaching of Chinese characters. Chinese characters are hieroglyphics and can be interpreted in accordance with the word. About 80% of Chinese characters are phonetic characters and we use different methods to demonstrate that.

The general principle of my teaching is to talk about the practice, with the most easy to understand language or intuitive image of the way to explain. I’m good at setting the scene and using contrasts to teach.

According to the age and language proficiency of the students children, I will set games, role plays, add songs and riddles combined with body language to attract students attention encourage interaction, For young people, I set the games suitable for their age and combine it with poetry, fables and Chinese culture. For adults, I have specialized programs suited to their study habits.

Every student is unique and as a teacher I gauge their leaning style and behavior to encourage class participation and maximize their learning.

In short, I have always upheld the teaching attitude: pre-lesson preparation, after-school summary, study of teaching materials, teaching innovation, participation in lectures and constantly upgrading myself. Looking forward to welcoming you to the Happy Mandarin family and guiding you through your learning journey!

Hello, everyone, I am Xu Caimei from Happy Mandarin, I come from China’s Hainan Island which is on the same latitude as Dubai. Hainan is known as the home of coconuts.

Here’s a little bit about myself: I graduated from Hainan University in with a degree in Art and Design. When I was little, my dream was to be a teacher. And finally, after graduation in 2004 I fulfilled that wish. I established my career in early childhood education with this becoming my main area of focus.

In March 2013, I opened the Montessori children’s home and continued to develop and learn relevant aspects of learning and assessment. By 2015, I had my Montessori Education qualification certificate and worked as the senior psychiatrist. The system of Montessori education completely revolutionized my entire teaching philosophy. The benefits of shifting children away from the system of spoon feeding learning and instead promoting the development of children as individuals thereby ensuring a happy learning experience for the children and the teachers.

This is the same core value of Happy Mandarin, where the teaching and the learning methodology is to promote the student’s strengths. The atmosphere in the class room is engaging and fun. The children truly have joy in learning Chinese.

It is a great pleasure to be a part of the Happy Mandarin family and feel the warmth in the team, to be encouraged, to feel fulfilled, deeply touched and influenced by Reem’s sincerity, enthusiasm, selflessness and vision.

I enthusiastically look forward to pass this onto every student I meet and that I can inspire in them the love this wonderful language and the traditions of the great land.
