Physics: Scientific English for Chinese students learning physics (yrs 14-17)

This resource focuses on the scientific words used in a typical physics class as well as a number of related worksheets (eg. calculations, a crossword, cloze style activity, English short answers). These will be useful for Chinese students studying abroad as international students or teachers in China who wish to teach their students the English words typically used in a physics lesson. Answers are also provided. The feedback from the classroom has been very positive and some colleagues from other schools have asked to use these resources for their Chinese International students. If there are specific topics you would like please tell me as it is likely they are currently being developed / or used.

Biology: Scientific English for Chinese Students - Ecology

Biology: Scientific English for Chinese Students - Ecology

This resource consists of * 2 worksheets with 3 pages of science terms we use to discuss and describe aspects of ecology. The student is asked to either fill in the correct English word or Chinese word when the opposite word is given. * A crossword (and answers) that uses some of the English words in the above worksheets * A worksheet in English with missing words that the student must fill in (answers are provided). My students tell me they enjoy using these resources because they can use them as references afterwards rather than gluing in their book and forgetting about them. The students also enjoy drawing pictures to help them learn these words. If you find any mistakes please contact me. The Chinese words have been checked by a native speaker though he is does not have a science background.

Chinese-English - learning the English words for the elements of the periodic table

Chinese-English - learning the English words for the elements of the periodic table

These activities were developed to help native Chinese students learn the English words for the elements of the periodic table. Our lessons are slower than in the typical timetabled class. I found that these worksheets helped the students gain confidence in the spoken and written word as well as learn about the periodic table. Over a 2 week period and many practical activities there was a significant increase in their communication and general engagement in the classroom. This resource bundle includes a funworder where the student must find the element (and atomic number) based on the Chinese word; two worksheets which require the student to fill in the English word or the Chinese word and a cross word puzzle. Answers are included. I am not a native Chinese speaker but have had the resources checked by a native speaking Chinese student. If there are any errors please get in touch and I will make the appropriate changes. I would also like feedback as I have a series of resources I will be publishing in the coming weeks. Your feedback will help direct my focus.
