快乐汉语一 第一课 Happy Chinese Lesson 1

快乐汉语一 第一课 Happy Chinese Lesson 1

第一单元第一课:你好本课是《快乐汉语》第一册的第一课,是这些外国学生学习中文的入门课。第一课的课程内容看上去似乎简单,但意义很重要。课文是介绍中文里两种问候打招呼的方式。全课只有五个生字,三个句子,学生不难学会和掌握,但教师要注意他们的发音是否正确,要认真听每个学生的发音并给予纠正,使学生在第一课就建立一个正确发音的习惯。教师要尽量创造气氛和环境让学生学会灵活运用课文内容。在本课安排两次课堂活动,加深对课文内容的印象并活跃课堂气氛,���要急于向前赶。在本课,利用课堂15%-20%的时间介绍中文的组成元素,初步讲解每个元素,并介绍中文的字体形状和书写规则。拼音不需过分强调,但声调必须重点强调。可以以一两个字为例来讲解拼音的拼写及发音规则和拼音的组成,比如:你nǐ,n是声母(initial)。I是韵母(vowel/ final)。我发现外国学生基本不需要特意教拼音,他们自然而然就写出来了,教拼音的最好方法就是让学生看书做作业和自己提出问拼音的问题,由老师解答,这样学生记得又快又牢,你不妨一试。 第一课不仅要完成课文内容,还需要介绍和引进其它中文知识和中国文化,也要注重引导学生学习中文的兴趣。第一课课时可以安排1-1.5小时。
