Language learning requires not only a cognitive process but also social interactions. Its ultimate goal is the students’ target language use in real life. Therefore, my teaching approach combines Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) and Task-Supported Language Teaching.
Students learn Chinese through communicative interactions and real-life tasks such as planning a travel itinerary, buying a shirt online, or writing a movie review. I strive to establish a supportive and cooperative community in my classes, where each member feels comfortable and confident to communicate in Chinese. I hope my students can grow and thrive together in such a community and later can apply what they have learned about the Chinese language and culture in their professional and personal life to improve both themselves and the people around them.Edit my profile
