Learn Mandarin Online from Teachers and Students
For beginners in a classroom, I think it's ...
1) being supportive / encouraging
2) using English to prevent frustration (after 2nd or 3rd try to understand, switch to English)
3) being somewhat strict with students who aren't working at it (they will not succeed without studying & just hold a class back)
Patience。An ability to explain concepts clearly. And to be someone that is fun to learn from.
Great discussion topic. In general, I think a teacher that can keep the class in Chinese without frustrating the students is on the right track. Are there any specific techniques that teachers use that you think are effective? For example, I liked when my Chinese teacher would teach us a new grammar concept and then give us a translation challenge.
hello, I'm angel. Nice to meet you. If you want to be a chinese teacher, I would like to become your first student.
I come from china, living in shanghai. I'm the native people. If possible, we can teach each other.
If I have any mistake for the sentence. pls tell me.Thank you.
From my perspective I think flexibility is very important for teachers, they need to listen to students wishes and try to cater to them, it dosn't mean the student is always right, and you don't always have to do what they say, but a good teacher needs to understand where the student is coming from and where they want to go.
That's my two cents anyway! Hey yes good discussion topic!
I'm sure there are numerous traits required, but i think the #1 trait has to be patience.
A good teacher is very patient because not all students learn at the same velocity or with the same ease. Some students, like myself, can struggle from time to time. When i do run into one of those concepts that for some reason my brain won't take in, i thank my tutor each time she successfully gets through to me because i realize that if i were in her place i may not have been as patient with me :)
Hi, everyone, I think to be a good Chinese teacher,
1) First need a native Mandarin speaker with standard pronunciation.
2) Effectively bilingual in Chinese and at least one other language such as English, French, Japanese, etc. It can prevent frustration.
3) Be committed to and enthusiastic about teaching.
5) Have teaching skills.
I'm a Chinese teacher, it is my opinion,do you agree with me?
