CSL Class (Chinese as a Second Language)

The CSL classes in Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language are designed for non-Chinese heritage children who wish to learn Chinese. The goal of this course is to stimulate student’s interest and ability to communicate in Chinese and develop a greater understanding of the richness of the Chinese language and culture.

CSL currently has 4 levels. Each level consists of 10 units to ensure that students can well master the characters, phrases and sentence structures that have been taught in the class.

In our CSL classes students learn the language via a variety of activities such as songs, games, story-telling and role play. Basic linguistic information is repeated throughout the course to improve student’s listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in Chinese.

Written Chinese characters are taught according to the order of the strokes and components in Chinese characters, Chinese characters are introduced in order of increasing difficulty – from easier one-stroke characters to more complex ones. The basic strokes and rules are introduced in the first level.  Each level builds on the characters, phrases and sentences patterns learned in the preceding levels. By the time learners reach the last level of the course, they are expected to be able to communicate in some way in Chinese on the basis of some 300-400 words and expressions.

Chinese Pinyin is also taught in these classes to enhance student’s abilities in learning Chinese language.

根据少年儿童和青少年的生理、心理特点和他们的需求与爱好,力求教学内容的科学性、趣味性和实用性。

“寓教于乐”的理念是海外少儿汉语教学的宗旨,为了激发少年儿童对学习中文的兴趣,并且能帮助他们达到能初步运用汉语进行听说读写的学习目标,我們设计了相应的教学活动,选取对少儿学习、生活有兴趣的题材,运用对话、采访、节目主持、儿歌、游戏、角色扮演、讲故事、事物演示和室外教学等多种方式,使他们对汉字和汉语产生兴趣,在教材创设的各种日常学习、生活和游戏的语言场景中轻松、愉快地学习汉语,并让他们既能听懂一些常用的汉语,会说、会读还会写一些简单的句子和文章,更对中国文化有初步的了解。

在教导少儿学写汉字的过程中,我们按照少儿的认知规律和汉字结构规律,从汉字的初始写法入手,由独体字到合体字,按笔画、笔顺、部首的顺序,先易后难,充分展示汉字形、音、意相结合的特点,努力把汉字教学与汉语教学结合起来,使学生觉得汉字有趣,学得会,写得好;同时,使他们能真切地感受到汉语和中华文化的魅力,从此而激发起他们学习汉语的兴趣。

汉语拼音是海外少儿学习汉语有效的工具。我们会将汉语拼音的教学与字、词、短语、句子的教学紧密地结合在一起,以求达到既能读准声母、韵母、声调和整体认读音节,又能准确地拼读音节;既学会了汉语拼音,又学习了说话的学习目的。
