Goal of the class:
Improve student’s spoken Chinese ability
How did you structure the class?
- Prepare some interesting English blogs, connect with “weirdest roommates that are impossible not to laugh at…or live with”. Because living with roommates has become the norm for many people, as house prices rise and living alone just doesn’t make financial sense anymore. Depending on your personality it can either be a joy of shared fun, food and life experiences; or a nightmare of unwashed dishes, bad smells and empty toilet paper rolls.
- Give some student several fun printed blogs. Ask them work in pairs, let the student who got the printed blog tell their partner the stories they saw. This partner tells the same story to the third person and the third tells the fourth person. The fourth student tell the story to the class and then the first student tell everyone the story he/she told is changed or not.
