    Dig the well before you are thirsty - Chinese Proverb











    And right over here you'll find Yumen and Golmud


    - - - Hey students...it's very simple really. You must learn those inflections (tones), those verbs and new vocabulary and how to use them effectively. Chinese is not a phonetic language. The pronunciation is not related to the writing of Chinese words (characters). A special tool called Pinyin (pronouncing the sound) is created for people to learn Mandarin pronunciation. Pinyin is a way to transcribe Chinese characters so people can pronounce it. The writing of Pinyin is similar to English alphabet.
    If you listen carefully you will find Chinese is a very beautiful language as it has more musical sounds (vowels) than noise (consonants). Except for nasal sound like "n" and "m", all Chinese syllables ends with vowels. So we call them "Final Sounds". The consonants at the beginning of a syllable are called "Initial Sounds".
    Most of Mandarin sounds are Easy for English speaker to pronounce but some sounds are Difficult and require more practice. So practice daily. Speak out loud. I learned in grad school that you will make 250,000 errors before you become "minimally proficient" in Chinese...so do not be afraid to make errors. Practice. I used to tell my students that errors are "lessons in wisdom." So get started today and make lots of errors and "get them out of the way!"
    ::: My best students were never hesitant to speak up and to try new utterances. You do the same and you will succeed! So get busy and check out all these helpful sites below that are aimed to help you become proficient in Chinese.

    GOOD LUCK

    China's People

    There are about 55 million ethnic minorities in China, each with their own distinctive customs
    costumes and, in many cases, languages. Though rich in culture, and varied, together they
    make up only about seven percent of the population, with the main group, know as Han Chinese,
    accounting for rest. Modernization of society and intermarriage are inevitably leading to the
    dilution of these differences, but many groups remain proud of their heritage and retain their
    traditional beliefs and customs. Many have beautiful styles of dress (especially of the women),
    and these costumes and cultures have become a major attraction to visitors, who bring trade to communities.

    Chinese Teacher hints, advice and tips

    I know from my own experience that being on a continual path of self-improvement is an absolute necessity toward be a good teacher. Hang out with other educators that you admire. Watch them closely and learn from them. Imitation is the greatest compliment! Join your language association [CLTA] http://clta-us.org/cltainfo.htm - plus two foreign language teacher associations (state and national: ACTFL - (http://www.actfl.org) and attend their annual meetings on a regular basis. Get involved anyway you can with each. Rub noses with people at the TOP. Get to know the officers personally. Keep in contact with them. Use these association offerings, suggestions and resources.

    Whenever you can in your own environment, ask to observe colleagues in action in their classroom. Pick up ideas that work for them and adopt and adapt them to you own classroom. Always be on the "lookout" for new ideas, new means of teaching, new ways to incorporate things that work for others into your own methodology. Don't hesitate to ask questions of teachers who have had much success as to how and why that happened. I used to observe elementary teachers and how they interacted with their young students. Always something to learn. "Learn from the mistakes of others. You'll never live long enough to make all of them yourself." Another that I always loved is "If you think you're GREEN, you'll grow - if you think you're RIPE, you'll rot." All true. Don't rot! That's an axiom that will never grow old. You may think that you are the best, but you're not. There is always someone better than you. (I learned this playing basketball) Learn from them. Know what the best practices are and be aware of the current online resources that can be of great help to you and your Chinese students.

    Keep your classroom presentations FRESH. Keep up with innovation and the changing needs of your students by incorporating technology such as computer use, iPhones, iPads, e-mail and a host of other innovations into your routine classroom activities to communicate with others in the target language and to access authentic resources. Stay current with options and trends in the field such as the National Standards and know how to incorporate them into your daily plans. Hopefully these few ideas will aid in your growth and success. Stay with it. Don't throw in the towel like many have, but again as I point out above, whatever new ideas you discover, you must first adopt and then adapt. Not everything you see elsewhere will work for you as I have personally learned. You must adapt those ideas to your own Chinese classroom. There are a host of great ideas available on all these sites, but they are only as successful as you will make them. And perhaps most important of all, do ask your students often how they feel about what they are doing and learning and what they enjoy the most and the least in your classroom. Most of all, do enjoy your students and share yourself with them. [They don't care how much you know until they know how much you CARE] I hope that you picked up some ideas here that will aid in your total success. Have fun in your classroom. (ps I picked up these ideas in a recent dream and wanted to share with each of you) I'm 72 but never too old to learn and never too old to share ideas. Best yet, why not be learning another language yourself? Check out one of the sites above. It is a great means to experience first-hand what your students are feeling. Now you are "walking in their shoes." Don't forget to have FUN doing it.Xie Xie. jeb BA, MA, ABD
