Teaching Chinese To Americans

An interesting article about Preparing American Students to Learn Chinese. The article I believe is meant for for those taking Chinese at a college level.

The article makes some good points and these are very good questions to ask:

  • How does an American effectively and efficiently learn Chinese?
  • What does the learner want and need to be able to do in Chinese?
  • What do I want the learner to be able to do in Chinese?
  • How do I structure things so that the learner develops the ability to do those things?
  • What is the learner doing inside and outside of the classroom?
What the article is not mentioning is how much of the material available in the US not written for the American Culture. That is why so much of the Learning Chinese Curriculum I sell is published in the US.
