Teachers in the Spotlight

Welcome to the latest edition of CLTalk, and the next issue of  ‘Teachers in the Spotlight’.

This month our ‘teacher in the spotlight’ is Danielle Coppée who works for a number of schools in the Netherlands teaching children, teens and adults. Danielle has been a teacher of Mandarin for 4 years.

In our first piece, we have an interview with Danielle in which she shares some of her classroom experiences with us, and gives some insight into her own teaching interests and the challenges ahead for the CLT industry – and in particular for the teaching of Chinese in the Netherlands.

Next, you can download an activity that Danielle has used successfully in class – the ‘Quartets Card Game’ to review key basic vocabulary. There is an activity outline to follow, and a template for making your own game cards.

Finally, we enjoyed meeting so many teachers at ACFTL in Boston 18-20 November! Thanks for visiting our stand, and learning more about Discover China.
