Many foreign friends ask us:
Why is learning Chinese more difficult?
Why is reading good, but speaking is wrong?
Why is it that we can't use Chinese in our real life?
In our point of view, the main reason is that there is no right phonetic foundation at the beginning of the entry stage, and not establish the correct nature order in mind, and not speak the Chinese with the "Chinese style."
1, We often say "A mispronunciation cause eternal hate." If the pronunciation is not right, the ability to distinguish the sound is not good. And then in communicating with people, we affect the understanding of the discourse, cause miscommunication, misunderstanding, and even jokes. Moreover, it will also directly affect the students' learning motivation and learning effect.
2. When adults learn Chinese, we must establish correct nature order of Chinese in mind. Because of the influenced by the mother tongue, many students often speak Chinese in their native language, not only inaccurately and ungrammatical, but also a strange feeling.
3. Lack of understanding of Chinese people and Chinese culture, and lack of flexibility in different scenes of life, and cannot correctly speak Chinese on various occasions.
Therefore, we should emphasize the teaching of the introductory stage, emphasize the language learning environment and the use of language. In the process of learning Chinese, as far as possible use the “Immersion Chinese Teaching Method.” Through the immersion teaching, train the students’ Chinese language sense and teach the Chinese way of thinking, thus to lay a solid foundation for further learning. We should try our best to follow this principle of " If a student does not speak a Chinese word, the teacher will not speak a foreign language."
At the same time, we advocate the " Communicative Language Teaching." Let the students fluently use Chinese in their life and work through the method of “Teach only the essential and Ensure plenty of practice.” Our ultimate goal is to the training of students' ability to communicate creatively in Chinese.In the course of teaching, from the students' demands, create and simulate the real language environment, let the students enter the role and give them more opportunities to speak.
Easy to Learn Chinese, and happy to make friends. Enjoy the time of learning Chinese in Cchatty!
