Teaching Chinese as a foreign language - Konferencja 13-15.04.2016


Teaching Chinese as a foreign language

Invitation to a Conference

In recent years, we have observed an unparalleled increase in contacts between the Western World and the People’s Republic of China in several areas. This phenomenon influences the Western Worlds to take an interest in education in Chinese culture and language – the number of people who learn the Chinese language and who would like to learn it is growing all over the world.

According to public opinion, Modern Standard Mandarin Language, official language of the People’s Republic of China, is very difficult to learn. Since this language uses such elements, as complicated writing system including very high number of characters and system of tones, popular opinion on Modern Standard Mandarin Language mentioned above, seems to be spot on. But is it true, how does it look in reality?

The University of Wroclaw, Hanban and Confucius Institute at the University of Wroclaw would like to invite you to take part in the International Scientific Conference “Teaching Chinese as a foreign language”. During the conference, we would like to discuss on:

- theory and practice of teaching Chinese as a foreign language,

- didactics and methodology of teaching Chinese;

- characteristics of teaching different groups of students,

- who learns and why or wish to learn Chinese,

For your convenience, we suggest the following areas of topics:

- modern programs of teaching Chinese;

- modern technologies in teaching Chinese.

We do invite sinology researchers, Chinese language teachers and methodologists, linguists and e-learning specialist. We do invite scientific employees (PhD and elders) and doctoral students.

The conference will be hosted by the Confucius Institute at the University of Wroclaw, Poland on April 13th – 15th, 2016.

The language of the conference is English.

Proposals are now invited for individual papers or posters. Proposals must be attached as anonymous, and must not contain more than 300 words (in English). They should be submitted by 15th February 2016 to the conference e-mail: teaching.chinese@uwr.edu.pl

Proposals sent by doctoral students should be approved by their supervisors (not in the proposal text, which must remain anonymous, but with the supervisor’s address in the CC field).
