Learn Chinese in China with Keats School

Go Back

A Successful Task Activity

At Keats, we not only teach Chinese. Besides learning Chinese in China at Keats, you will also have a chance to meet new friends from all over the world. You will study Chinese with them and enjoy wonderful times in China. We organized an interesting group activity last week for the students who are studying Chinese at Keats. Offering various fun activities for students to learn Chinese effectively and collaboratively makes Keats stand out from other schools as Keats School no longer serves only as a Chinese language school, but also a community filled with happiness and friendship.

The Task Competition was held in Kunming Museum, in order to help our students experience the local culture and history of Yunnan. There are five distinctive sections within the museum: Bronze Section, Flying Tigers, Old Pictures of China, Extension Section and Kunming Section.

The students were randomly divided into seven groups and one teacher was assigned to each group as the group leader. Their arms were marked by one type of animal. Their group was named as that animal’s name. Each group needed to create their own slogan and strategy to win. With one shout “START”, each group ran into the museum and started to complete the task. Keats management team set tasks in each section at the museum, and the students needed read the task carefully and complete the task in each designated section. The tasks included finding answers, taking pictures, finding statistics, and find Chinese characters. The students needed to complete the tasks within required minimum time. The group leader and the students collaborated to complete each task while the task was divided for each member to be completed in some groups. After they completed the tasks in one section, they needed to report to the control platform to move on to the next section. After one hour and a half, the group “Lion” first completed all the tasks in all sections. However, there were a few mistakes in their findings and they lost the first prize unfortunately. The group “Tiger” got all the findings right and used the least time complete the task. All the members in the group “Tiger” were very excited.

Lastly, all the groups received their prizes according to the ranking. They congratulated each other and brought home lots of prizes. Many students expressed that they had never taken such interesting and impressive activity in China. The most important is that they met new friends and learned many words while completing the tasks. Of course, they also had a great chance to learn about Kunming culture and Yunnan culture. Some students told us that they were very looking forward to our next group activity. Keats School Event Planning Team is now working on our annual cultural festival, which will be held next month. We can’t wait for another great activity and lots of fun.

I come to Kunming because I think the environment in Kunming is better and I heard that Keats School is better. I like the small group Chinese class because my classmates study hard and our teachers are very good. I like the teaching method of Keats because I like the activities at Keats. I think Yunnan is a particularly beautiful Chinese province.

I think Kunming is a great city, the weather is really good. I really like Keats school and found it is very organized. The teachers here are very good. They have a coffee shop and new classrooms, a new lounge area here now, so you can chill out with your friends and practice your spoken Chinese with natives. If you’re considering coming to Keats to study, I would really recommend it. It’s the best place to learn Mandarin and I think it will be a great experience for you.

In the one-to-one intensive Chinese course, you can choose the learning method you like. The small group Chinese class in China at Keats follows the HSK textbook. Teachers often collect feedback from the students, teachers listen to our requirements and opinions. I felt that my oral level is better than before .

Listening and speaking in the classroom every day has improved my communication skills. After three weeks, my new words and sentences became more and more natural and fluent. Now I am used to thinking in Chinese, and I understand better what other people say, to be able to have real conversations with other people.

I really enjoy this place because we have private Mandarin lessons. I took the 6-hour program, 4 hours in the morning, 2 in the afternoon. Even though it is quite a lot, the teaching is complimentary. This is very helpful because I could review what I did before and learn new things. My 2 teachers are fantastic. We live in the school, so it is convenient. It is interesting to me to meet people from all over the world.

Small Group Chinese Class

My first semester that I studied at another school, and the pressure there was pretty high, the classroom hour was long, and the homework was pretty tedious. Since I came to Keats, I found I have a lot more opportunities to speak in the classroom. My classmates all are fluent and love speaking and participating in the class. We have great classroom dynamic.

I can’t tell you how much I liked it. The thing I liked about the teachers and the teaching method is that there is so much flexibility. The other thing I liked about the teaching is the combination of classic textbook learning and going outside. I loved it! I like getting to know other students. Everybody shared the same goal and that’s making their Chinese better. Kunming is a big city, but it is very safe to live here. Another thing I liked about Keats is the idea that people here help you. I can’t recommend it enough. I think it was a valuable experience. Looking forward to coming back!

I really had a wonderful experience at the school. The teachers are very very friendly. In my class, we practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing. We play games and other fun activities. We have trips around town. The staff at Keats is phenomenal. My teacher is one of the best teachers I have ever had in my educational experience. She comes in with a smile every day.
