Science and history have proven we learn best with stories, so go with the proven strategy.
Create a story.
The story need not be a masterpiece, but it should be relatable to your students.
Even if you simply describe a day buying groceries at a local market, it’s something students can relate to. You might be surprised if stories you think your students will find boring are actually quite interesting to them - and are a rich source of activities and words for your students to learn.
We all have stories we can share. Why not share your stories with your students on Ricciwawa – where then can learn Chinese and learn something about you as well?
