We welcome opportunities to work with schools and local communities to promote Chinese language and culture and to develop understanding and stronger links between U.S. and China. With this in mind, we are offering these cultural workshops:

If your school would like us to run a language or cultural workshop, please contact Valerie Chou at cico@binghamton.edu or 607-777-3056. We are also happy to run tailored China enrichment programs for schools. So if what you require is not included in the list above, please get in touch and we will do our best to help.

Chinese through Song Workshop 唱歌学中文学习班

singing chinese

This workshop will introduce the groundbreaking approach of teaching Chinese through song.  The participants (Chinese language teachers) will go through a step-by-step learning progression to obtain the basics of vocal techniques, including posture, breathing, voice projection, and singing expression. In addition, they will be trained to teach singing and conduct a chorus.

这个学习班将介绍富有创意的唱歌学中文的教学法。学习班的学员(中文老师)将循序渐进的掌握唱歌的基本技巧,如姿势、呼吸、声音传送及歌唱表达等。此外,他们也将接受教唱歌和指挥合唱的训练。

The workshop will be highly engaging and interactive. After a PowerPoint presentation of this innovative approach, participants will stand up and start to warm up their voices. Their roles will shift from choral singers, to soloists, to chorus conductors, and finally, returning to language teachers furnished with new approach and strategy. The instructor will demonstrate singing and conducting at the podium, but will mainly walk around to function as the “guide on the side,” rather than as a “sage on the stage.”

本学习班将是高度投入和互动的。在用多媒体介绍这个创造性的教学法之后,学员要站起来练声。他们的角色将转换为合唱队员、独唱演员、合唱指挥,并最后又回到掌握了新的教学法的语言老师。教员将在台上示范演唱和指挥,但更多的是来回走动,更像是“身边指导”而非“舞台圣者”。

Each participant will also receive a packet of selected songs that are suitable for this purpose. They will walk away with the confidence and skills to improve their students’ pronunciation, diction, and language expression through singing Chinese songs and enhance their interests in Chinese music and culture.

每个学员还将收到一本为此目的而精选的歌曲。他们离开时将得到通过唱中文歌改善他们的学生的发音吐字和语言表达并提高他们对中国音乐和文化的兴趣的信心和技巧。
