2 Day Workshop for Chinese language teachers

This two-day workshop will explore managing learner expectations, learner styles and techniques to meet students’ needs.  There will be a specific focus on teaching pronunciation, speaking, listening and character writing.  Teachers will also look at the elements of a good lesson plan and have an opportunity to work together to create and prepare a lesson which is relevant to their own teaching situation.

The workshop will be led by teacher trainer, Dede Wilson who has many years’ experience working with teachers in China and around the world.  Dede will be joined by Wu Yan Mei of Manchester Metropolitan University and Zhu Zhu of the University of Edinburgh.
