Self-reflection on the Teaching of Chinese at Australian Schools: from a Teacher-researcher’s Perspective

Yiye Lu

摘要(Abstract):

The rise of China has changed and is still changing the Australian economy, society and strategic environment. In order to face the challenge and shape the Australian future in the 21st Asian Century, one of the strategic plans Australian Government made is encouraging all Australian school children to be able to learn Chinese (Mandarin). However, the lack of qualified teachers constrains the development of Chinese language teaching and learning programs in many parts of Australia. This paper begins with the necessity of promoting language teaching and learning in Australia. Then, it focuses on three reflective stories from a teacher-researcher’s initial teaching practice. These stories reveal three main challenges that Chinese language teachers face. Following this, other obstacles related to Chinese teaching are presented. It argues that the number of appropriately qualified and experienced teachers of Chinese to work with beginning non-Chinese background Australian learners is highly demanded.
