Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Target audience: Early Childhood Teachers

Prerequisites: Creativity

Workshop outline: The workshop is conducted in English and Mandarin. We welcome other language teachers to join. This workshop attempts to present Mandarin as a multi faceted subject beyond the book where the children engage most of their senses to learn Mandarin concepts in action. 
Art & Craftwork are selected based on a certain theme and the learning experience is enhanced through the entire explanation and activity led by the teacher and facilitator.
This style of learning is particularly useful for language learning in early years it provides a relaxed mode of communication amongst the students, encourages problem-solving skills.  Most importantly, engaging in Art & Craft work in a different language engages the little brain into a full workout and improves cognitive function as children explore, translate, and learn new things at the same time.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Apply this concept to other learning activities to make a language seem alive and applicable in real life to children.
