International Montessori Teaching Institute (IMTI) of NIME was honored to invite Sandra Lee to give lectures on how to teach Chinese with Montessori Method from Aug. 7-11. Our students of AMS teacher training program (weekend cohort of 2017) attend this course. A lot of adult learners were also attracted to attend because of her fame in this field.
The course focused on Chinese language modules, including listening, speaking, writing and reading. Pinyin and Chinese characters are the work of writing and reading.
After 5 days of detailed explanation, the learners understood Chinese in a more systematic and structural way. Through this course, the learners learnt how to teach Chinese, how to enrich their teaching design, how to prepare demonstrations adapt to the development stage of children and their way of learning.
After the course, the learners gathered around Sandra Lee. They exchanged their ideas with her and asked more suggestions from her. They wished that she could come here again next year and give more directions.
