The teaching of Chinese requires constant exploration and experimentation. Teachers need to bring new learning experiences to students in order to hone their memory and deepen their understanding of the vocabulary they have acquired. In this session, teachers will learn to design interesting activities based on the Chinese Language textbook to help students use Chinese proficiently in their daily lives. Participants will also learn how to self-reflect and how to provide effective feedback to help students grow and experience the joy of success in learning Chinese. Through reading, speech and drama, the singing of Xinyao songs and the utilisation of ICT, the teaching of Chinese can be both engaging and fun. This will further enhance the interaction between teachers and students, thus motivating students to become more passionate and confident in the use of Chinese.
