Checking Learning Result by Counting Strokes and Combining Sentences

Acquiring a certain language is a long process. During the process when foreign learners come to learn Chinese in China, they find Chinese language is interesting but difficult to learn. They will forget soon what they have learned. In order to solve this problem, teachers should make efforts to test the learning result before starting news teaching contents, thus helping them consolidate the learned language knowledge.

Most learners frequently feel boring in language learning. When learning Mandarin Chinese, the strokes of Chinese characters is a difficult point. Therefore, if teachers can apply the number calculation to theChinese language learning properly, it might have a better result. At the same time, students can devote them to Chinese learning enjoyably.

Accordingly, we can hold the competition of counting the strokes of characters in class. After teaching the news words, teachers can write two groups of same characters on the left and right of the blackboard and then divide students into two teams. For the convenience to teach Mandarin Chinese in this way, one leader will be chosen from each team.

The group leaders choose two members as a unit for competition. One student writes the characters and another take the responsibility of counting the strokes of characters and writing them down until all characters are written and counted. Then, the team leaders should do the summarizing. For examples, the character “挂” has nine strokes and “输” has thirteen. It is effective for students to study Chinesecharacters in this way.

Increasing students’ interest to learn Mandarin in China is important in Chinese teaching. To connect the fragments into a whole sentence is an effective way to greatly improve their interest to learn Chinese. First of all, teachers write down three groups of phrases or clauses on the papers and put them into three different boxes. Then students choose one piece from the boxes respectively and read out the sentences combined by the phrases.

Here is an example to explain to learn Chinese language with this game. After teaching the grammar points like “来/去……做什么”, “用……做什么”, “在……做什么” and “给……做什么”, teachers can write three phrases on the papers ant put into boxes. One group is the names of the students, the second group is the phrases of “在 + 地方名词” structure and the last group is the phrases of “做什么” structure.

After the students pick three pieces of notes from the three boxes respectively, they should connect them into a complete sentence and then read out. After reading the sentences, the other students may be attracted to learn to speak Chinese because some of the sentences may cause much laughter. The sentences may be “他在自行车上游泳”, “我们在学校上课” and “他在床上洗澡” and so on.

The most important factor to learn Mandarin Chinese better is that students are willing to open their mouths to speak. The way of bragging may be beneficial to encourage students to talk. After teaching new grammar points, teachers can ask two students to do the bragging game to see who brag the best with fewer mistakes. When one of them fails to continue, another student will be chosen to take the place.

This game is very proper to hold in Chinese language school after learning the comparative sentence. In the bragging game, students should use phrases commonly seen in comparative sentence like “比、没有、不如、跟……一样、与……相比……”. The sentences may be “我比你帅”, “你没有我高” and “你的朋友不如我多”. But the sentence “你相比我,差多了” is incorrect.

This method of practicing Chinese language can be used widely for different grammar points in Mandarin learning courses. The complements of state can be practiced by this way. For examples, students can brag like “我说得比你流利” and “你汉字写得太难看了”.

The three methods introduced above are all helpful to check the learning result and consolidate the contents and grammar points that have learned. Teachers can choose to use them according to the actual situations.

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.

Since last semester, we started studying Chinese at Keats. It was the best choice we can ever make. It is a really good school. The classes are a lot of fun, you learn a lot, but very interactive, so you talk a lot which means it is not just books and writing. Kunming is a really pleasant city to live, especially if you compare it to other cities in the east. If you like to travel, if you like to study Chinese in a fun way, Keats is the place for you.

It doesn’t matter what level of Chinese you have, or even you can start from the zero level. Your teacher will prepare the lessons according to your requirements. The advantage of living in the school is that you will have your tutoring, you will have your private accommodation with your own bathroom and all the meals provided. I highly recommend everybody to actually take the whole package because you get to meet other students.

The visa application was really straight forward, because Keats School helps us a lot for that. Keats has a big emphasis on conversational practice, so we learn a lot of vocabulary and daily life plan which is very convenient for us to go around town and speak with Chinese people which is the whole point of coming to China.

They really care about what our interests are, what questions we have, what requirements we have. Then they adjust our class content according to the situations. One teacher and one student, so it is easy to keep your focus for the 6 hours of lessons. It is very convenient to study, live and eat in one building.
