Text Box: Sierra Chinese school
育达中文学校

育达中文学校创建于2006年,坐落于美国加州首府沙加缅度地区。目前有十个传统中文班和四个中文口语班,总共有在校学生100余名。此次开办远程英语口语网络教学,主要是为了提供一个中美学生之间语言交流的窗口,让本校的学生有机会把他们的英语母语通过Skype的渠道传授给在中国的小朋友。与此同时,也有利于增强本校生中文的听、说、和写的能力。

育达中文学校的“小老师”都是在美国出生和长大,有一定中文基础的九年级以上高中生。他们经过育达中文学校的筛选,并且接受了一个星期以上的专门培训,兼有独立授课的能力。本校的远程英语口语教学主要招收对象是以中文为母语小学二年级到初中二年级的中国学生。依照每位学生或家长的要求,拟定教学方案,没有固定的课本。此远程英语口语教学并不要求事先签约长期合同,拟以月为约算单位。每次为时45分钟,每月1号按总次数预付本月费用。如对远程英语口语教学有兴趣的学生或家长可发电邮到wslin00@hotmail.com 或微信 ID: sierrachineseschool
