Skip to 0 minutes and 15 seconds Hi everyone, welcome to our course. I’m Lily (I-Ping, Tsai). Now, I would like to share the design concept of this course. The first one is “learning by doing.” To be more clear, at the end of our learning process, we will have a writing activity, which is immediately create a sentence or answer a question, and share the article just after the lesson. A way of learning is to constantly learning, output, give feedback, learn, output, and a give feedback. The second design concept of this course is “write to speak.” Most people learn a language with the main goal of speaking it, but rarely consider writing it.
Skip to 1 minute and 3 seconds Because we used to take writing as a formal way to express our idea, and which make us think writing can help a conversation. However, nowadays we often use spoken language to talk on Internet, and the way we’re communicate on the Internet is no difference from ordinary conversation. People can also give responses and feedback right away. In conclusion, we hope students not only learn how to write, but also be able to speak. Once your keyboard is set up, you can start typing in Chinese, and also start a writing journey. :)
