An idea that helps my students learn in an interesting way

I have always had English speaking friends, however, most of my Chinese students don’t have such luck. About 10 years ago, I was a language instructor for the employees at EA games and got to know Anthony, a Korean American and the game producer who just relocated from the U.S. Anthony was really outgoing and friendly, and loved making friends. We hit it off in the first class. Although we were teacher and student, we usually went for a drink and chatted for hours after work. I also enjoyed showing him around Shanghai. One time he recommended me saying that I was probably the coolest mandarin teacher in China. That touched me a lot.

He told me back home he really enjoyed CouchSurfing, which is to stay overnight on a friend's (or even a stranger's) couch. That was the first time I heard about such a way to travel and live! My horizon widened a bit more every time I spoke to him. I also wanted my students to have this kind of magical experience because language learning could be so much fun when you’re learning from different cultures. It was a shame that Anthony only had some opportunities to practice a few sentences of Mandarin in my class. So an idea came to my mind; I made my students teach him Mandarin after class. They would go to a cafe and had a mission to speak to Anthony about one topic in Mandarin for about 30 minutes. That activity helped my students use what they knew in English to express themselves, and Anthony got to learn a few more new sentences in Mandarin as well as experience speaking to different people locally.


我一直身边不乏讲英语的朋友,然而我大多数的学生并没有学习的环境,十年前我在上海的EA Games教授英语还有汉语,认识了刚刚从美国过来工作的游戏制作人Anthony,Anthony非常的大方开朗,就是那种特别会交朋友的那种人,和我一拍即合,我们虽然是师生关系,但是下班总是会一起喝一杯,我喜欢带他到处逛上海,后来有一次他在他的FB上面推荐我,说我大概是全中国最酷的汉语老师,让我十分感动!


他告诉我,在美国的时候有一个嗜好就是CouchSurfing 沙发冲浪,那是我第一次听到这样的旅行方式,所以每一次和他说话都让我眼界变宽了!我也很希望我的学生有机会有这样的神奇体验,因为和不同文化的人学习真的很有趣。我想到Anthony除了和我讲几句汉语就没有什么太多练习的机会,所以我灵机一动,就让我的学生开始轮流教他汉语,他们会相约一个咖啡厅然后用30分钟解释中文的一个主题给Anthony听,因为这个活动让我的学生也充分的运用到了英语,Anthony也有机会学习到新的汉语和不同人说话的经验。


结论:记住,英语的实力是真正在你能够应用了多少,而非学了多少!用在文化交流或者是帮助别人学习汉语就是一个一石二鸟的方式!如果你身边没有外国友人的话可以利用italki、或者是hello talk app找外国友人练习英语,或是最近美思的Danny也有在组织类似这样的语言交换活动群,可以他的微信meisionline来咨询!
