More Information

Section Description

This service-learning course is designed for (1) intermediate and advanced students of Chinese who want to further apply and improve their language skills through active use of the target language; and (2) native Chinese/Japanese-speaking students who are interested in language education. This course extends language practice and intercultural communication from traditional language classrooms into local communities, through the approach of “learners-as-teachers” service learning. In this course, students, under the guidance of faculty experienced in language teaching, will collaborate to teach Chinese language and culture lessons at a local school. The primary goals of this course are to (a) allow students of Chinese language to increase their own confidence and proficiency through the challenge of teaching; (b) allow native Chinese-speaking students to improve intercultural communication competence through a new perspective on their native languages; (c) provide an opportunity for all students to gain marketable skills in language teaching that they can use following graduation; and (d) create an embodied experience for all students through serving the community in a way that increases awareness and appreciation of the value of education in Asian language/culture and the importance of early language instruction. Please contact Ying.Hu@uvm.edu for details and permission. Instructor’s permission is required for registration.
