Enjoy the critical periods for language learning.

I don’t  know  why there are critical periods for language learning. But during this period, I saw this phenomenon in children. It’s amazing. They can produce the crisp, clear speech sound.

我并不知道为什么语言学习存在关键期。但是在这期间,在孩子们的身上,我看到这种奇妙的现象。非常令人惊讶。孩子们全都可以快速的发出纯正清晰的发音。    %e7%ac%ac%e4%b8%89%e8%af%be-002

Chinese pinyin is important for Chinese language learning. At the same time, it is easy to learn. Every children can learn to speak Chinese(not to write) by Chinese pinyin.So I think pinyin’s teaching–the earlier; the better. Chinese, what’s different  from English,is a tonal language in which the tones convert  differences in meaning.

汉语拼音对汉语的学习来说无比重要。与此同时,汉语拼音也是很简单的。每一个孩子可以通过汉语拼音的学习学会讲汉语,虽然这并不代表会写汉字。所以我认为拼音教学--,越早越好。不同于英语的是,汉语是一种声调语言,不同的声调区分不同的意义。

I told students  that you can use your hand.It is available to  improve the student’s perception of image by using body language as a supplementary means.What’s important the body language make the kids happy.

The first tone is just like the tone of “Maybe”, the second like “What?”, the third like “Shall we?”the  forth  like “No!” The students love the feeling of speaking tones. But they cant’t pronounce the second tone purely.The hard part –second tone. To solve this problem, I try to let the kids exaggerate their pronunciation .The result is their tones sound much more authentic.

我告诉孩子们你可以用你的手演示声调。用肢体语言可以提高孩子们对陌生声调的形象感知,它是一个有力的补充。最重要的是,肢体语言可以让孩子们快乐的学习。

In order to pronounce these tonal letters, we designed a game–to pat the letters just like to pat the flies.

为了让孩子们发出有声调的语言,我们使用了一个小游戏——去拍字母就像去拍苍蝇一样。

The game is one student to pat  and others to read for her. The kids had a good time.

游戏是这样的,一个学生上前来拍字母,其他的学生给他读拍哪个。

After the pat game, then let the kids to identify  the falling apple. It’s very interesting.

拍词游戏过后,再让他们去识别掉落苹果上的字母来巩固。是很有趣的。
