The teacher Tao-chung “Ted” Yao 姚道中 was well-known in the academic world for his contributions to the learning of Chinese. Explorations in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language has been designed by his colleagues and friends in his honour and includes a series of articles on teaching Chinese as a second language.
Description by the publisher:
The spirit of Professor Yao lives on in his colleagues and students, who contributed to the compilation of Explorations in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language to honor his memory. In this volume, you will find articles on teaching Chinese from leading voices in the field. Instructors and researchers will benefit from these essays on best practices in instruction, Language Flagship programs, Chinese linguistic studies, heritage learner identities, curriculum development, teacher training, and more.
