Applying Cognitive Linguistics in the Teaching of Chinese as a Second Language
Huang Dian (University of Westminster, UK)

One of the cognitive processes is embodiment, such as gestures. Embodied cognition helps us to see and feel an abstract concept. Information stored in our long-term memory is in form of images. Utilizing embodiment is one possible way to illustrate grammar rules and phrase structures – that is to use images and gestures to establish a link between the physical and the mental world. The objective is to help students memorize and produce the correct language. In my presentation, I will focus on the following:

1 How to explain grammar structures and vocabulary usage by relating them directly to our own bodily experiences through image and gesture.

2 How to help busy learners beginning Chinese language and enhance understanding, retention and the ability to use the Chinese grammar and vocabulary in the real world.

Throughout the presentation references will be made to the grammar and usage syllabus of Discover China 1, a communicative language course for Chinese.





基于麦克米来教育出版社出版的‘Discover China’具有交际语言的特点,我的演讲中所讲解的语法和词汇的应用都将出自于‘Discover China – 学生用书第一册’。

Teaching Listening

Many studies have proved that listening input is an effective tool to prevent fossilization in speaking and writing of a second language.  The theory also shows that listening can be an active factor in improving fluency in terms of vocabulary choices and sentence structures.  It is common experience that students find listening material very challenging due to difficulty in vocabulary, grammar and background knowledge.  In my presentation, I’m going to discuss another dimension of cognitive difficulty which is clearly relevant to teaching and testing of listening. I will present practical examples of how to adjust a listening material to suit students’ level of Chinese from perspective of cognition.
