Analogue Method Applied in Chinese Teaching

The analogue method is also called the method of pattern. During the process when foreigners learn Mandarin, they may know it is different from the comprehensive approach and deductive method because it resolves the grammar rules into some sentence patterns and then standardized the sentence patterns into some example sentences. After that, the learners who learn Mandarin can see some sentences. After imitating and comparing and practicing those sentence patterns, the learners can master the language skills.

For example, after teaching 了, teachers should firstly emphasize the dialogues in the textbooks like A: 你们昨天赢了没有? B: 没赢, which the foreigners who learn Chinese language may be familiar. Then, the students should do the replacement practice such as A: 你们昨天看书了没有? B: 没看. Of course, the purpose of practicing in this way is that the students who learn Mandarin can master and use the structure …了没有. This method is directly, easy to understand and practical in Chinese teaching. But teachers should also use proper methods according to the conditions of students.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

My name is Sarah Fish. I am 81. I knew very little Chinese when I arrived. How was I going to survive 2 weeks of intensive Chinese? I have to laugh when I think of that now. What a positive experience this has been! I really wish we could be here a little longer. The teachers are extremely encouraging, evaluating first how much someone knows, and then starting from there.

I really enjoy coming here because it is like kind of a home for me. It is a great great environment to learn Chinese and meet great people from all over the world. Every one here is extremely friendly. Kunming has a really nice climate. It is a very good mix of modern city and also a lot of historic Chinese culture. Probably got the cleanest air in China and possibly the cleanest water too. I invite you to come.

The place is very cool. I am with a great group of people in my class, so coming to classes is very enjoyable. It is fun, we have a lot discussions, games, activities. Our teachers are also very good, very supportive. Learning Chinese is intimidating at the start because you have so many questions. But I would advise coming to Keats because the atmosphere for learning is great. It is very relax. I would recommend the school.

I have studied at Keats for 2 semesters. I highly recommend Keats School. If you are very interested in Chinese culture, I would suggest you come to Kunming. Kunming people are very friendly. The weather in Kunming is great. So I recommend that you study at Keats in Kunming.

I think the learning environment here is great. The teaching methods are also very interactive and fun. What I particularly enjoy here is the fact that my teacher does not stick to the textbook. We spend a lot of time discussing general topics, such as Chinese culture, world news, typical expressions used by local people. We also discuss social and economic topics.
