#YCT: Youth Chinese Test
Teaching English cross-curricular with Mandarin and simplified Chinese writing has added a total new spin in my classroom. The children that visit have a rather good base for their English already and are able to read the pinyin above the simplified Chinese words in the gorgeous storybooks that cover interesting topics for children aged from kindergarten level to even primary six classes. The spin of these three elements making such an interesting cross-curricular teaching have given me much more delight in teaching. It works well for individual lessons or as a small class of four students that I teach.
The photographs that talk about Chinese culture when I’m playing in the app are always very interesting. I now know what different dragons look like. I like Chinese dragons more, now.
