I am Dee wang, graduated from the University of Science and Technology with Master of Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages (MTCSL) . I taught Chinese for the International students who studied in the University of Science and Technology and China University of Geosciences for half a year and got one-year experience for working at Bendigo South East College of Australia as a volunteer Chinese teacher. I am doing a language ambassador job at Forest International Language Academy (Elementary Campus). It is a semi-public school which runs Spanish and Chinese Immersion Program. Compared to the Spanish Immersion program, Chinese one is totally new with six-year history. Teachers and students who are involved in the Immersion program must speak the aim language, that is, teachers must explain the aim language and sometimes maths and English by the aim language. I am working with the second grade at the moment, helping the classroom teacher with teaching and management. This blog is for recording the conclusions and reflections from the class and sharing the interesting anecdotes happened in the classroom. I hope it will be helpful.
In this month, we focused on the classroom rules and daily routines, reviewed the Chinese characters and mathematical addition and subtraction of the first grade, while training students to form a good reading habit and get a optimistic study attitude. I was so amazed by the students’ Chinese level and the ability of study.
