你好！Welcome to the Chinese Learning Corner! *Opening slot on Aug 13th*
Dear iTutorGroup Teachers!
你 们 好！（Hey guys！）
Here we are launching our very first language learning event for teachers –
Chinese Learning Corner!
We held this exciting online learning corner to encourage our teachers to learn some useful Chinese words and phrases. This could not only be helpful for communicating with Chinese students when giving certain instructions and guidance but also put yourself in students’ shoes as being a student again!
During the past teaching period, teachers may not be allowed to use Chinese in sessions due to quite a number of complaints from our clients. To build a more colorful teaching environment, we would like to encourage our teachers to learn the native language of our students and be able to guide junior students who are under a lower level of English capability. Yes we have professionalism in teaching, but do we still remember the feeling of learning new languages?
Yes or No, doesn’t it sound good to learn together with our students?
So! Let’s start from 你好! （Hello）
What you can expect from the event:
- Language learning tips from global teachers
It’s tough to learn a new language especially when you do not have a native environment. This is the key problem when iTutorGroup students are learning English. And similar happened to our teachers when learning Chinese… But! You guys are excellent!
We feel the honor to have so many bilingual teachers and teachers who are interested in Chinese culture and language. Before the event, we have some of our amazing teachers to share their videos with us about their experience learning Chinese. It is such a pleasure to see the creativity of our teachers as well as knowing that many of you guys are actually in your progress learning Chinese. During the event, we will share some of those excellent videos from consultants who have really brilliant ideas on learning Chinese. We hope you guys will enjoy watching those inspiring videos and share your thoughts with us!
- Useful In-Session Chinese words and phrases
Have you been in the situation that you were unable to make your students understand a simple instruction because the students are under a low level of English capability? And you have tried using TPR, doodling and putting stickers, nothing helps! Sometimes a simple Chinese word will solve it and keeps your class moving on. There are several instructional words which are quite useful for an efficient class! For example, when you want a student to repeat your pronunciation, you can say “跟我读” (repeat).
Also, sometimes when students feel nervous to answer the question, they may use Chinese to express themselves. A bit understanding of Chinese will help a lot. When you hear your students say “我不知道” (I don’t know the answer), you will get that the students may need you to repeat your question or your help with the answer to the question.
In some of the videos from our teachers, we found you guys have the amazing pronunciation of Chinese! And we can’t wait to share with you guys those excellent videos!
