Amiee Ho

Aimee Ho graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a Master of Arts degree in Applied English Linguistics. During her postgraduate years, her research focused on Second Language Acquisition, Curriculum Design, Sociolinguistics, and Psycholinguistics. These study streams enabled her to have a deep understanding of language education, and equipped her with the capabilities of guiding students in language learning. She also practised English teaching in a private language school during the time when she was in the university, teaching students Cambridge English there.

I believe that it is of significance to discover students’ language talent by using appropriate methods which are in accordance of their aptitude. When I was in the university, I have done research on students’ aptitude in language learning. It was this research that made me realize the individual differences in language learning aptitude, and inspired me to explore more in teaching methods so as to motivate students and provide them with a smoother language learning pathway.

The Importance of Readers in Chinese Learning

This content is only available in Chinese. 談到學習中文,我有一個心得,就是要多閱讀中文書。學懂中文不是一朝一夕的事,閱讀中文書可以幫助學生不斷吸收書中的知識、引起他們對中文的內在興趣並激發他們掌握中文的信心。 我有一個學生,從她身上我看出了長期閱讀中文書給學生帶來的變化。她是一個小四的學生,因為小學沒有寫作課程,所以她在學校裏沒有學過寫作。但是我發現,在i-Learner的寫作課上,她寫出的句子很自然流暢,詞語運用和句子結構都很好。這一開始讓我覺得很驚奇。但是,當我慢慢了解這個學生,我發現她非常喜歡中文閱讀。在課前,如果她早到了課室,她就會拿起中文書,津津有味地讀起來。到目前為止,她已經能閱讀六年級水平的中文書了。 經過這個學生的啟發,我更加認定讀本對中文學習的重要性。回想一下自己的中文學習過程,從小我就是一個愛讀書的人,小三就已經在看四大名著。正是因為在書中吸收的知識,讓我的中文學習更加得心應手。而且,因為我能寫能認的中文字比其他同學多,這也幫助我提高了中文學習的自信心。 常言道:「萬事開頭難。」一開始也許學生會覺得閱讀的時候會遇到很多生字、讀不懂書中的內容。但是,經過逐漸的積累和興趣的加深,我相信他們是可以克服生字這個困難的。現在很多學生喜歡閱讀英文書,一開始也會有很多生字,但是最後堅持下來的學生往往能大大地提高英文水平。既然他們能養成讀英文書的習慣,為甚麼不試試中文呢?                          … Read More
