Join us for an adventure of enlarging and enriching our lives through learning Mandarin Chinese!
Welcome to another adventure of learning and growing through my Chinese classes in the coming school year! I am privileged to return as a middle school Chinese teacher in my second year at DISK while very pleased to take on Grade 5 Chinese class for the first time. It is my passion to grow myself into the fullest of life through learning languages creatively using resources in various forms of media. I love to help my students do the same. I look forward to seeing their lives enriched through developing ability with Mandarin Chinese, not only as one of the most commonly spoken languages in the world, but also in terms of the culture and the worldview which it offers!
October 17, 2017 - Introudcing our Wall of Emotion & Personality Vocabulary! 最新推出心情個性詞彙牆！
This has been and will be always helpful for us to express more precisely what's in our minds and how we feel about situations we write about. Notice the cards of the Emotions are arranged in order of intensity, for example, from "happy" (愉快） to "ecstatic" (狂喜）. For the cards of personality, there are in pairs. Positive vs. negative.
這面牆上的字彙卡可以幫助我們在口述表達和文字寫作時，不會卡卡的，可以比較自在地想寫什麼，手邊就可以選擇比較貼近原意的詞彙來表達。這是這個學季的秘密武器，希望大家都能慢慢地享受像外面的世界表達內心世界的樂趣！請注意：情緒卡裡有六組詞彙，分別依照強弱自左至右排列出來，比如從最弱的「愉快」到最強的「狂喜」。右側的個性詞彙則是兩兩成對，有正負面的對比，但是其中也有例外，不一定是正負面的詞彙：如「活潑」 vs. 「文靜」。
