Mandarin is a language that is unlike any other and this makes it difficult for the students who opt to learn this language to fully understand its concepts. Most students will struggle a lot during the learning process and this will further add to the reluctance that they will experience in trying to speak and use this language in the future. Going for extra courses and using textbooks can always help to some extent but it will not replace having practice as well as practical knowledge of the subject. By using textbooks you spend too much time going through the text and also trying to figure out the meaning of various unknown words, taking notes during classes, talking to friends or even looking up words in the dictionary. There should be a more productive method of teaching that will help you establish a context for the learning and also be able to expand your vocabulary.
Most of the time students will have the complaint that they are able to understand what is going on in the class but do not understand what is being said in the outside world by those who know how to speak Chinese this is due to the fact that they may not be familiar with the context or the different kinds of words that can be used in that situation. By teaching your lessons according to the different situations that the student may come across and according to the different topics it is easier for you as a teacher to make sure that you are able to complete all the possible topics that can arise in that scenario as well as all the different words that can be used for the same. This will make the class more relatable to the student and they are able to pick up what you have to teach them better.
Another benefit of using scenarios while teaching is that you can make classes for toddlers more interactive , and be able to easily get the whole class to participate while you teach. This will take away the monotony that is associated with the theory classes in which you usually risk losing the interest of the students because they are not playing any role in the lecture.
Using topics and scenarios in your lectures helps the students understand what is being taught better and this will make your class more effective than a plain theory lecture.
