Gamification of Chinese lessons (using mobile applications as an example)

If 15 years ago you were told that mobile phones will become one of the usual educational tools along with textbooks and a whiteboard, what would be your reaction?! Modern students cannot imagine their existence without various gadgets, at the head of which is a phone. And sometimes it is difficult for us to get them out of this virtual world in order to put knowledge into their minds.

 Currently, a huge number of applications can help us integrate into their "phone-tablet world", and to master recently received or forgotten knowledge in the game form. We will tell you about those apps which are easy to use during the classes, turning them into exciting competitions, and which make homework a "Race of Heroes", where there will be no losers, and the main prize is a new level of Chinese!

Methods of teaching vocabulary in Chinese lessons
Vocabulary is an important aspect of the language, how can you teach it so that students do not just write characters and cram new words? In my speech, I will talk about how not to teach vocabulary boringly, what different ways of explaining new words can be used with different parts of speech, how to use visualization and modern technologies in the classroom.)
Learning Chinese with tabletop games
Piaget once said: "The purpose of games is to get happiness." The charm of games is far-reaching. People of all ages and statuses like to play games, so using games to learn and practice Chinese can make students learn it without any pressure in the classroom.
There are many types of games. This time I will mainly share the application of tabletop games in Chinese classes. Tabletop games are a common type of leisure and entertainment. They, as the name suggests, refer to games played on a table or any other surface. Using tabletop game to learn Chinese emphasizes practicality and fun, which makes it interesting, and then stimulates their desire to learn Chinese, enhances their motivation, and allows them to learn it autonomously. The practical aspect is to let students practice different Chinese abilities in games.
Different tabletop games allow students to practice different abilities. Some games allow students to strengthen their listening and speaking skills, while others allow students to practice reading, literacy, etc. This time I will share 2-3 tabletop games that can be played regardless of age. In addition, with the rapid development of technology, almost each student now has a computer. Students like to play mobile games. Of course, teachers can teach Chinese through digital activities. I will also share 2-3 ways to use mobile phones in class.

Task-based teaching method is a teaching method that has been widely promoted in recent years, which can help second language learners use the target language in a real context and complete the tasks needed in life. The Taiwanese textbook 《學華語向前走》 is a foreign Chinese textbook designed for elementary and middle school students. Task-based teaching is one of the key points of the design concept of the textbook.
This article first introduces the design concept of the textbook《學華語向前走》, and then evaluates this textbook from the perspective of task-based teaching methods, analyses the tasks and activities of each lesson, and finally provides the future substantial teaching suggestions for teachers of Chinese as a foreign language in primary and secondary schools based on the evaluation results.
