How to guide students to learn Chinese grammar in games

For students, grammar is always the most boring and difficult part, and it seems to be a truth. As a teacher, how to correctly convey grammar knowledge to students? In particular, the grammatical structure of Chinese is different from that of English, and students are easily confused. Here, I would like to make a point that the teaching of grammar should be subtle. Once a lot of rules are given, students will involuntarily reject it. So we try to guide students in the form of games. There is a very interesting grammar game recommended for parents and students who are learning Chinese, called Silly Rainbow Sentences.


From the upper picture, we could see how to construct the basic sentence in Chinese, the formula is (attributive)+subject+(adverbial)+predicate+(attributive)+object. Students will face challenges when they've taught this formula directly. So here is the way: At the top is the sentence structure formula, we mark different components with different colors. there are some color blocks,we could ask students to follow the top rules to arrange the color blocks and combine them into different sentences. After that, read it out loud and feel the fun of silly sentences. for example,




After the students are familiar with the formula, we can change the words in the color blocks according to different themes and let the children practice dialogue. In my classroom, the students would also create their own words to replace, and then suddenly laughed;)Students not only become familiar with the grammatical structure but also exercise their logical thinking skills. More important is the willingness to speak out Chinese!I hope that all of you who have read this article can be happy and feel the beauty of the game.

Hi, I'm Tiffany! A certified Chinese teacher and a trained IB PYP educator, who devote to teaching students from 4-12 years old and adults from beginner. How to improve the efficiency of online Chinese teaching? Why is there no improvement after studying for a long time? I believe these issues must have been considered as parents, although I'm a full-time language teacher in Singapore, I've been faced with some challenges when the online lesson conducting. I like to teach language by concept and inquiry, to engage students to voice up the knowledge they learn. Affected by the philosophy of IB teaching, I prefer to teach students Chinese from concepts and needs, starting with fun content and questions, such as dinosaurs, what do dinosaurs like to eat? Height of dinosaurs, how do dinosaurs walk? Why did dinosaurs become extinct? Each question will contain knowledge, concepts, and grammar. For example, the food that dinosaurs like to eat can be divided into meat and plants. After that could be expanding on what foods humans like to eat, and what tools we use to cooking. which is different from categorizing languages into four types: listening, speaking, reading, and writing, conceptual teaching methods will have some difficulties at the beginning, but once they are familiar with this model, students can learn more knowledge and conceptual thinking in Chinese. For adult beginners, There are 15 basic Chinese lessons. Learn from what are Chinese characters, the composition of Chinese pinyin, common situational phrases in daily life, basic grammar, etc., and build the foundation of Chinese. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me.
