Welcome to Chinese Class and begin a fantastic school year!
I am very excited to have your student in my Chinese class, the first Chinese program in our school! I am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth and fun! It will widen your student's worldview, help them understand Chinese culture and communicate with some basic Chinese!
I am from Dalian, China, which is a port city in the northeast part of China. I graduated from Liaoning Normal University in China with a Masters in Linguistics and Applied Linguistics which focuses on how to teach Chinese as a second language. I have almost 20 years of teaching experience. Most of my teaching experience was in China and recent a few years of teaching in USA.
I welcome your child to grow and learn together with me and I hope you will grow and learn Chinese with your child as well!
Please contact me with questions and concerns. The best way to contact me is by email. If you leave voice mail, I will reach out to you.
UPDATING In March ,2020:
Dear students and parents: I have updated the quick link which will be good resource for students to learn Chinese during school closed days, including some learning tool like covert Chinese characters to pinyin, the stroke order, funny Chinese songs to learn Chininese,etc. I may add more in google classroom as a list of resources to use.
We have very good online textbook Zhen Bang(same textbook) to use during school closed days. Most of content in textbook has audio and video, and flashcards for vocabulary study, self-assessment in quizlet.com. It is a very excellent online learning material. I will often assign tasks for students to do on online textbook.
And we have been using google classroom for a while. During school closed days, please let your kid to check google classroom every day ( main stream and classwork) as well as checking online textbook assignment.
I hope your student and family can all stay safe during this uncertain ,difficult period.
