deep Chinese culture

 

 However, I still have a few points to add.(or the RP I want to express.)
1. Please, make my view on CULTURE more details, especially the teaching approach on the deep Chinese culture based on the syllabus and curriculm.
As a Hanban mandarin teacher, I have experience on teaching mandarin speaking lesson with the approach hover the Chinese folk/mythology/Chinese children / traditional festival………but I was limited by my position.
Considering the KS2&KS3 pupils facing both the GCSE and A-Level examination, I propose to make the deep Chinese culture into the teachers’ lesson plan, curriculum. In addition, there are challenges on the teachers’ awareness and background, the students’ willing and the micro-level school or classroom language policy.
For instance, if we have the culture taster lesson, spring festival, making dumplings, watching movies and trying calligraphy are quite all common activities. But, actually, we can also connect the Chinese people’s behavior in Chinese New Year with the topic family, environment on CIE pre-u syllabus, which will be the initial gap in the mandarin. classroom. Let’s the students find the change about the New Year Dinner in recent year. Compare the difference and find the trend, the students are predicated on analyzing the economy of the modern society.

2. I want to use the mythology of other researchers ‘studying on language policy (LP) for instance, case study, semi/full participant classroom observation, interview. So, I chose the 3 elements on LP as my framework.

 

 Here are the comments from the Prof.

Your research proposal sounds very interesting and your experience as a Hanban teacher in Mandarin classrooms in the UK will act as a good foundation.

However, I think you need to look at your research questions to decide exactly what you what to investigate – you mention language policy as practice, translanguaging, teaching of culture etc. Language and culture are interwoven but your research questions need to be more explicit. Your research methodology also needs a bit more detail- Is it a case study of one school, how many classes etc Any ethical issues?

I noticed that you have referenced my colleague Florence Bonacina -Pugh. Have you sent your proposal to Florence?

3. I did the Literature review and observing the classroom as an assistant which is the second part of my job in UCS: senior school. I found the Translanguaging as a pedagogy almost in every language classroom. I think trans- culture can be also considered as the pedagogy, which we can find the common culture between western and oriental. The aim of my theory is try to decline the students’ phycology against on the other countries ‘culture and foster their intercultural ability.

Above all, do you mind make my RP more professional and narrow, please.
