Hello everyone, my name is Lingling Zhang (Phoebe). I come from Wuhan in Hubei Province. I am studying Master of Teaching in UTAS, my two specialisations are Chinese and music.
The students in kinder class (aged between 3 and 5) are the youngest in the whole Chinese School. Some of them are from Chinese language background whilst others mainly are from English speaking background. Regardless of family backgrounds of kinder classes, children can experience the fun in the process of Chinese learning. The teaching content in this year level includes greeting, polite language usage, and daily life conversation and so on. We are aiming at encouraging students to learn Chinese as a second language. Moreover, students can develop their politeness habits and the capacity of studying initiatively.
Since children in kinder class are still very young, I will apply appropriately teaching strategies, which based on students characteristics. We are trying to inspire children’learning interest by conducting listening and speaking practice, dancing, playing games, role-playing and so on. The main concept is to use vivid body movements and rich languages to develop the children’s imagination and language skills.
