各位海外华裔少儿家长:

你们好!
我们虽然没有见过面,但我想这并不代表我们没有需要共同探讨的话题。作为一名中文老师,我虽身处“方寸之间”,但我每日都有“日行八万里”之感。得益于我的工作,我每天都会遇到各种有趣的学生,和世界各地的学生一起分享有趣的事,在有趣的体验中一起收获进步。可以说,我越来越爱我的工作了。


最近遇到一个华裔妈妈,添加我的微信特意来问“四岁孩子到底要不要学习中文?有没有什么好的学习方式能吸引孩子的学习兴趣?”

因为平时也有不少家长问,所以今天就写篇文章来谈一谈这个问题。我自己认为越早让孩子接触中文,对于孩子的中文学习是更有利的。我身边也有一些家长,在孩子1岁多的时候就开始双语养育了,现在孩子快3岁了,中文和英语表达能力都很不错,也能根据不同的语言环境进行一些语言上的切换。

当然,这个孩子的学习成果离不开家长的坚持和付出。所以通过这个例子,我想说明的是,如果你想要你的孩子说中文,建议可以早一点启蒙,这样,越到后面越省力。

在这里我也给大家提供一些好的方法,也是很多孩子实践后管用的办法。


今天想通过分享一个华裔少儿学中文的案例来总结一类华裔少儿学生学习中文的学习兴趣。
01学生姗姗六岁,比较害羞,不排斥学中文。 妈妈之前自己有教过一些简单的中文,学生模仿能力比较好,但是忘得很快而且也很难主动说中文。因为姗姗年龄较小,注意力容易分散,持久度不足,而且容易偏离教师的教学要求,自控能力相对比较弱。


01

当对外汉语老师这些年,我发现:初看,华裔孩子们普遍听说强于读写;再一接触,其实华裔孩子们听说方面存在的问题也不容忽视。

懂,不一定是真的懂。

由于受家庭语言环境的影响,很多华裔孩子可以与老师进行简单的沟通,他们似乎能够听懂老师所说的话,甚至当老师确认他们是否明白时,他们也会毫不犹豫地告诉你‘no problem’。然而如果老师再多问一句“What does this mean?”,他们不一定可以说出正确答案。


世界因为疫情而按下了暂停键,生活却还要继续。作为家有两娃的中年老母亲,我每天除了密切关注疫情的消息,还不得不暗暗担忧:在这个特殊的时期里,孩子的中文学习怎么办?


随着IB考纲的更迭,IB考核内容与全球化视野的联系更加密切,较之旧大纲只专注于文学作品内部的艺术特色不同,新大纲更加考验考生对于作品与全球性问题的理解与探索。这样的考核方式更加注重对学生个人能力的提升以及更深刻的思考能力的培养。

但是对于IB考生来说,面对新的考核大纲和不断增加的阅读书目以及全新的考核形式,内心的担忧和不安显然是只增不减的。如何在没有任何文学知识的基础下,在短时间内快速提升对文学作品的理解能力以跟现有的考纲密切联系呢?
