About Xinyu

I am a second year student of University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign with an urban planning major. I come from China and already got a Chinese Teaching Certification. Last summer, I had some experience about teaching Chinese. My student was a fresh year college boy from Russia. He has some basic knowledge about PINYIN, a system of Chinese pronunciation and Chinese input. However, his writing and speaking skills were a little bit weak, so that I designed classes for him focusing on writing and speaking.
Before teaching, I will have a short talk with students to find out how much they know about Chinese and their demand about this language and culture. Different students have various demands about language learning in a term. Some students want to know more about Chinese culture, so they are not only interested in speaking and reading skills. For these kind of students, I will prepare one specific topic each class to talk about Chinese traditions or any issue they may have interest. During class, we will read one or more short stories, discuss about these stories and make a dialogue in a scenario. Also, if students are interested in Chinese calligraphy, I can teach them in a fun way. Most students could handle simple Chinese writing in twenty hours of learning. Some students want to gain proficiency in Chinese, so I will balance class hours for their four skills—Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing.
Every students may suit different teaching methods, so I will adjust my courses according to students.
