Workshop of Being a Mandarin Teacher

On 30 November 2018, NCI Ningbo Branch held the workshop of being a mandarin teacher at 114 Portland building. More than 30 UNNC students participated in the event and most of them showed great passion and enthusiasm to the programme as well as being involved in supporting the teaching and learning activities for Confucius Institute.

Colleagues from NCI Ningbo Branch presented an outline of being a mandarin teacher for all the participants. Firstly , mandarin teacher Luchao Wang, who was also a volunteer teacher in Confucius Institute at Veliko Tarnovo Bulgaria , introduced how to teach Mandarin overseas via Hanban and British Council’s volunteer projects, and strategies to apply for these projects.


 Secondly, Volunteer teacher Lydia Wu and Office Manager Jenny Xu shared their successful experiences on how to achieve the International Chinese Teacher Certificate in the exam and interview respectively.



Thirdly, Mandarin teacher Seren Hu briefly presented the outlooks of CI Mandarin courses and suggested attendees to be involved in the teaching and learning activities by participating in Language Partner Program and teaching through Drama program. 


The last part was about being an HSK invigilator and how to apply for the qualification, delivered by mandarin teacher Yona Yuan.


Further training and knowledge exchange sessions will be organized later. Hope more UNNC students will join the team for teaching Chinese as a second language .
