Chinese Teacher 5
Teacher 5 does not have a general teaching certificate (the British equivalent is the P.G.C.E), but she does have a Masters in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language. She is a new teacher, with two years teaching experience.
T5 uses a text book as the basis of her teaching strategy, and always prepares her own lesson plans. She likes to use multimedia in the classroom. And limits her use of English in the classroom to only beginner students. She emphasises the study of Chinese characters in her classes.
Regarding professional development, she occasionally participates in a “Teachers Salon” organised by her school, which gives her a lot of ideas to use in the classroom.
