|Yamin Ma from ACT-Education Consultancy Limited||在MYP中文课程中怎样来贯彻以概念为基础的理论？||Various teaching pedagogies are reviewed including concept-based teaching and learning, which the MYP curriculum is based on. It is believed that the MYP curriculum should be viewed as a framework, and the actual teaching of Chinese in the classroom needs to be well thought in order to help the students achieve mastery of language knowledge and skills, which can support deeper and conceptual thinking and understanding.

|Louisa Yen from The University of Hong Kong||让学生爱上中文的10大法宝||“I hate Chinese”可能是中文老师们最害怕听到学生所说的话，可惜在国际学校里，的确有很多外國学生对中文学习欠缺动机，因而衍生許多行为问题，造成师生关系紧张。中文对二语学生来说是个“外星文”，很多学生学习多年仍然没有进展，老师们也十分无奈。中文教学如何突破给人“难”和“闷”的刻板印象？中文老师如何和外国学生建立融洽的师生关系？如何帮助二语学生有效地学习中文？如何让学生从“I hate Chinese”变成“I love Chinese”? 这个讲座将分享师生关系的建立和一些有趣的教学策略，也欢迎大家分享经验！|
|Ms. Vivien Ting from Island School||近母语中文教学现状及展望||Teaching Chinese to near native students in international schools is a special field worth exploring since it is neither teaching Chinese as a native language nor as a foreign language. According to my observation, the effect of teaching Chinese to near native students in international schools is yet to improve. The main issues lie in the following areas. Firstly, students begin learning Chinese from kindergarten, but most of their proficiency level is not high when finishing secondary school. Secondly, the students learning Chinese tend to have a bottleneck at the stage of Primary three and four. Some of them will even quit. Thirdly, the speaking and writing ability of the students is generally weak. I will explore teaching Chinese to near native students from a few perspectives, such as what type of course it is, what and how the students should be taught as well as the goal of teaching Chinese to near native students. I will also share and discuss the experience and results of teaching Chinese to near native students in the past years.|
