宁波赫德幼儿园的学生们一整天都将浸润在学校营造的英语学习和生活环境中,除了正式的英语课之外,如上文中的对话那样,在日常的生活以及其他课余时间,我们也会鼓励并教授孩子们使用英语与我们沟通。

Why are the CASA students in English class from the time they enter school to the time they go home? The students attending HD Ningbo CASA are learning English all day long, during formal English lessons and throughout the entirety of the day. The whole school day CASA manages to teach their young learners the English language through practical life experiences.




赫德幼儿园部的学生在一个由四名老师共同带领的班级里学习,有三名中国教师和一名外教教师。外教教师只用英语与孩子们交流,其他中国老师基本也会与孩子们进行双语沟通。

 

在校园内,我们并没有上下课之说,所有的外教老师和中国老师会和孩子们一起来度过他们在校的八小时校园生活,最大程度地鼓励学生们使用英语。


The students in CASA are assigned to a class that is co-taught by four different teachers; there are three Chinese teachers and one international teacher. The international teacher is instructed to only speak English and in most cases the Chinese teachers in the classroom are speaking bilingually all day long. Since the school day is not laid out into different “periods”, all of the English promoting classroom teachers are with their class for the whole eight-hour school day. Each class has their own unique schedule that they must transition through from 8:00am to 4:00pm. So, what better way for young learners to build foundational English and fast track learning then to learn the basics of personal care and how school works via English.


每个外教老师都有他们自己擅长的方式去提升孩子的英语听说读写能力。对于幼儿园的小朋友,抓住每一次与学生互动的机会并与他们产生情感上的链接,并在此基础上来对他们进行英语教学,是最卓有成效的教学方式。

 

这就是为什么老师们在与学生们对话时,最常用到的词汇是“喜欢/不喜欢…”“想/不想要…”“需要/不需要…”,以及“是/不是…”等。


Each international staff member has their own preferences on how to promote English speaking, listening, writing, and reading but everyone is promoting the same language that can easily be seen and obtained around CASA. Making every interaction with the students a personal connection seems to be the most successful. This is why teachers base most conversations around these four sentence structures: “like/don’t like …”, “want/don’t want …”, “need/don’t need …”, and “am/am not …”. Any learning experience can be fostered around these personal sentence starters that can be applied to anyone or anything covered in school or seen outside of school.



另外,结合日常的实际生活经验来帮助幼儿园学生学习新的语言,是一种比常规英语课程更有效的教学方式。

Learning through real-life experiences help CASA students to pick-up new language faster than any formal English lesson ever could.



举个例子,在准备午睡时,我们的学生们很快就学会了与服装类有关的英语词汇:

“Please take off your shirt (请脱掉你的衬衫).”

“Put on your pajamas(穿上你的睡衣).”

“Put away your shoes(把你的鞋子收起来).”


The students quickly learn clothing vocabulary when preparing for naptime. “Please take off your shirt.”, “Put on your pajamas.”, and “Put away your shoes.” are just a sample of commands that students learn through hands on experiences.



更常见的是孩子们需要表达他们的需求时,他们对于常见词汇也能表达得驾轻就熟:

“I like to eat vegetables(我喜欢吃蔬菜)”,

“I don’t want to eat chicken(我不想吃鸡肉)”

“I need to go to the toilet(我要上厕所).

“I like to eat vegetables.”, “I don’t want to eat chicken.”, and “I need to go to the toilet.” is more common language acquired in the classroom because the children solely want to express their needs and wants to the teacher in order to receive their wishes. Since the international teacher is always in the classroom and co-leading the daily activities, the students are pushed to use their English language to tell the teacher what they want and get their needs met.


最后,在宁波赫德,英语游戏也是帮助孩子们提升英语能力的重要方式。在赫德日常的教学中,这样的例子随处可见。这样做的好处是可以让学生们建立一种概念:学习英语是一种吸引人的“游戏”,而不是一项乏味的任务。


The last but arguably most importantly language acquisition tool used in HD Ningbo CASA is English Play Time. This can be seen in many different ways and actually links back to how each international staff member has their own preference on how to promote the English language in every aspect of the children’s day. The idea is to mold the young learners brain into believing that learning English is an attractive “game” to play and never a tedious task.

学生 1:我能看见袋鼠班!

Pat: 袋鼠班声音很大吗?

 

学生2:是的,他们需要安静一些

Pat: 是的,我喜欢在室内保持安静。

 

Teacher Pat of Seahorse Class likes to play What Do You See? to spark real-life discussion.

Student 1: I can see Kangaroo Class!

Pat: Is Kangaroo Class loud?

Student 2: Yes, they need to be quiet.

Pat: Yes, I like quiet inside.”

后记

 

在赫德幼儿园,我们重视每一次师生之间的互动,并通过寓教于乐的方式对孩子在英语方面进行润物细无声的教育。我们希望幼儿园阶段的教育不仅培养孩子们良好的行为习惯,更能为他们之后在赫德各个阶段的学习中建立坚实的基础。

 

最后,我们相信,赫德学校先进成熟的国际化课程体系,不仅能培养学生的学术素养,开创性和批判性的思维模式,更能帮助孩子们成长为既具有民族情怀、又具有国际视野的世界公民。

 

In kindergarten perfection is not essential because time is never wasted, every teacher-student interaction is used as a learning experience. In CASA important character building experiences are used not only to sculpt future role models, but also to give them the confidence in English that will allow them to excel in all levels through their career at HD Ningbo School.
