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?


目前很多参加IB中文考试的学生, 大多是在国外的华裔学生,在阅读各种小说,散文和诗歌的时候,经过老师的指导,都能很好地理解文本的主旨和作者要表达的意象。

但是每当口头考试和笔试的时候会遇到这么一个困难,各种要表达的意象和对文章的理解在脑子里很杂乱,导致写论文的时候没有重点,思路也很混乱。

那么要解决这个问题,就需要我们借助结构化思维来使脑海里的论点条理化。

什么是结构化思维呢?


“朋友圈里面的一个美国律师感叹到,中文社交媒体对带官帽上学的事情大加赞赏,简直令人感到发指!这是对专制的崇拜!是在毒害下一代。”

臭宝还未出生,我就和老公立了一项“家规”,等孩子出生了,以后我们在家就只说中文。虽然常年生活在国外,但我们两个人都是土生土长的中国人,我们的孩子可不能以后连自己的母语都说不顺溜。
