How to Teach Chinese in the United States

This is a practical workshop designed for K-12 Chinese language teachers. The objective of the workshop is to explore most effective instructional strategies to teach Chinese phonology, lexicon, grammar, and discourse to develop students’ listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Presentation will focus on innovative strategies in teaching each of the topics. Discussion will be followed to brainstorm for creative ways to better educate students about the Chinese language.

This workshop is presented by Dr. Ling Wang, the lead teacher in the Chinese language program at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Wang received her MA in English Language and Literature from Peking University and Ph.D. in Foreign Language Education from Purdue University.
