Find the Best Way to Study Chinese in China
There are thousands of articles aboutlearning Chinese. However, people still find that there is no such a systematic approach to apply for. No one even could deny that the traditional classroom for Chinese learners is not enough to learn the language in a quick and effective manner.
Speaking of learning approach, Flipped Learning has been widely used in modern schools in American. The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures are viewed by students at home before the class session, while in-class time is devoted to exercises, projects, or discussions. The questions is, how does flipped learning works when you are studying Mandarin?
Firstly, video lectures are often seen as the key ingredients in the flipped approach. New Concept Mandarin classes provide extraordinary video lectures created by our experienced instructors. Students can make use of the videos for previewing and reviewing anytime anywhere.
Secondly, the value of a flipped class is in the repurposing of class time into a workshop where students can inquire about lecture content, test their skills in applying knowledge, and interact with one another in hands-on activities. During New Concept Mandarin class sessions, instructors function as coaches or advisors, encouraging students in individual inquiry and collaborative effort.
The Last but not least, in a traditional lecture, students often try to capture what is being said at the instant the speaker says it. They cannot stop to reflect upon what is being said, and they may miss significant points because they are trying to transcribe the instructor’s words. By contrast, the use of Chinese video lessons will put all lectures under the control of the students: they can watch, rewind, and fast-forward as needed. Therefore, flipped learning can be considered as the best way to study Chinese.
