There was a teacher from an European country. She found a job in a kindergarten. When she started her classes for the first several days, she found that it was very hard to teach the kids because they are too young to understand you. Although there is a Chinese teaching assistant in the classroom, it doesn’t help a lot. The assistant is mainly responsible for maintaining classroom discipline. She can also delivery what you said to the kids in Chinese, but the students can’t benefit a lot from your lessons. You have to communicate with them by yourself and let them get familiar with you and your lessons. She was a little upset and not confident. Then a mandarin program come to her. She started to study mandarin online. After several classes, she has learned some daily expressions like “Do you understand?”. She can communicate with the kids directly and know the feedback of kids. The kids are doing better and better. She feels very satisfied and proud. So once you have studied mandarin, the communication with Chinese people will be easier and there will be no misunderstandings and no troubles. You can speak mandarin with your colleagues, students and even parents. Most of schools want teachers that can speak a little Chinese and are so much willing to hire a foreign teacher just like you. So it will create more job opportunities for you and you don’t to worry about your life and teaching english in China anymore.
