大家好，我叫杨沐艺，是塔洲中文学校adult beginner班级的老师。在国内，我本科学习的是对外汉语专业，毕业后考取了中学语文教师资格证。随后，我又继续在澳洲的莫纳什大学攻读了对外英语硕士专业，现已完成学业。考虑到个人专业学习的知行合一，我在学习期间，在国内中专的新疆班进行了对外汉语教学、以及在墨尔本的教会进行了英语教学（面向adult beginner）的实践。
Hello everyone, I’m Yang Muyi; the teacher of the Adult Beginner Class. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages in China after which I obtained the Middle School Chinese Teacher Qualification certificate. I then completed a master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other languages (TESOL) at Monash University in Australia. While studying, I used my professional knowledge and put it into practice by teaching Chinese as a foreign language to ethnic minority students in Xinjiang Classes of Secondary Technical School in China, as well as teaching English to adult beginners in Crossway Baptist Church in Melbourne.
The students in my class are adults with a basic Chinese foundation, but a large age gap and different backgrounds and motivations to learn Chinese. Some students are of Chinese descent, learning Chinese is to communicate with their families and Chinese friends and to trace their roots. Others who do not have a Chinese background, learn Chinese simply because of interest. They want to understand Chinese culture, and master Chinese; which is one of the greatest and most widely used languages in the world. For the purpose and needs of everyone’s learning, we insist on taking students as the center, setting different teaching contents and tutorials in a different and hierarchical manner, teaching students in accordance with their aptitude, helping them to master basic and practical Chinese words and communication skills, so as to realize better communication in Chinese in real life and gain a deeper understanding of Chinese cultural customs. Language is the carrier; teaching is the media, and they work together to facilitate Chinese culture going global. I hope that through our efforts, we will continue to pass on the Chinese language and culture in Tasmania thus allowing it to maintain its development and prosperity!
