A STEP By STEP GUIDE to WRITING CHINESE for Beginners

Learning written Chinese symbols, called characters, is essential to mastering the Chinese language as well as all other writing systems derived from the Chinese family of scripts such as Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese. To say this script is complex is an incredible understatement; a single misplaced dot or extra overlap of lines can change the entire meaning of the character and create some unfortunate (and sometimes funny) misunderstandings. At the same time, Chinese is also a tonal language consisting of many homophones. Learning the Chinese written characters will also help you obtain a much better understanding of the language and the ability to avoid many embarrassing moments.By attempting to teach students to write characters in only traditional constant practice and memorization, one can only reach unsatisfactory results. Young learners especially will have to overcome both the difficulty of the writing system as well as the non-challenging, tedious repetition of traditional instruction. In time, these methods will only drain students' motivation with very little results to show. Therefore, I created a special technique which first introduces the stroke order, then allows the student to trace and write the character on their own.I hope this book will help students broaden their learning of the Chinese language.

Assessing the English Language Writing of Chinese Learners of English

This book focuses on the assessment of English language writing in China mainland, the territories of Hong Kong and Macau, and Taiwan. The first part of the book describes how writing in English has been assessed in Chinese contexts in the past 25 years, and how it continues to be assessed at present. The second part of the book presents reports of work such as formative classroom-based assessment, feedback-based or feedback-led approaches, learning-oriented assessment, portfolios, as well as the important issue of teacher professional development in writing assessment. This two-part division relates to and reflects what has been happening in writing assessment internationally, in the UK from the 1940s, and in the US in the past 25 years. The use of English for international business communication, for international political negotiations and its rapidly increasing use as a medium of instruction in some subject areas has led to a rapid increase in the numbers of Chinese L1 speakers who are learning and being assessed in English. This is often done with an emphasis on reading and writing. The vast majority of assessments of English language writing are done through large-scale direct testing that uses simple prompts/tasks and short writing samples. This book explores best practices in assessing the writing in English of native speakers of Chinese. Assessing the English Language Writing of Chinese Learners of English edited by long-time experts Liz Hamp-Lyons and Yan Jin clearly demonstrates the authors’ collective years of writing and teaching about writing assessment. The book’s 13 chapters, written by recognized experts in assessment of Chinese speakers learning English, represent a wide array of important topics written in reader friendly language and offering evidence for pedagogical practices as well as high-stakes testing of writing. Teachers, researchers, administrators of writing programs in China, and test developers who seek counsel about this population need look no further than to add Assessing the English Language Writing of Chinese Learners of English to their reading list.

Teaching Writing in Chinese Speaking Areas

One of the most civilized nations in history, China has a long-standing writing tradition and many Chinese texts have become world treasures. However, the way the Chinese teach writing in various countries in contemporary times is little known to the outside world, especially in Western countries. Undoubtedly, the Chinese have had an established traditional method of writing instruction. However, recent social and political developments have created the perception amongst both practitioners and researchers of a need for change. Whilst certain socio-political changes, both in Mainland China and in the territories, acted as agents for reform of the teaching of composition, the shape these reforms are taking has been due to many different influences, coming both from inside the countries themselves and from foreign sources. Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore have each developed their own approach to the teaching of composition.

Narrative Inquiry into Reciprocal Learning Between Canada China Sister Schools

This edited volume explores how Chinese school-based educators learn from others and attain awareness in dialogue with the world in an era of increasing globalization and information exchange. Minzhu Primary School in Shanghai, China, and Bay Street School in Toronto, Canada, have been connected as sister schools of cross-cultural exchange since 2008. Together, they have explored ways to reciprocally learn in a cross-cultural partnership while remaining grounded in their home culture and language. In this book, chapter authors examine how Chinese school-based educators view themselves, understand others, and grow and develop as a consequence of a decade of cross-cultural reciprocal learning as sister schools. Further, the authors discuss prospects for future educational interactions between Canada and China.
