Design of a Beginner-Level Chinese Language Textbook for Thai Students
Teaching Chinese in Thailand
Chinese teaching materials in Thai
In recent years, nearly every Thai university has developed a Chinese language program. Non-governmental organizations have also created Chinese language schools to meet demand for Chinese language instruction. The number of Thai students of Chinese within Thailand has multiplied due to the increasing popularity of Chinese studies; as a result of this development and the dearth of qualified Chinese teachers in Thailand, class sizes continue to increase. Currently, in numerous Thai universities, graduates within the Chinese department often choose to remain at the university and transition from being a student to being a professor. This situation is less than ideal, since such students typically do not possess the teaching experience or the requisite skills in the language to be successful professors. According to Liu Xun (2006), “Teaching is a concrete manifestation of overall design, which reflects objectives, teaching requirements, teaching content, and teaching principles; at the same time, teaching materials are the basis for classroom pedagogy and testing.” Therefore, even when a beginning teacher has sufficient knowledge of Chinese, his or her lack of experience with regard to curriculum design, classroom instruction, and assessment means that quality teaching materials will become all the more necessary. The circumstances described above led me to consider the nature of Chinese teaching materials in my country. Therefore, the purpose of this thesis is to design teaching materials for Thai students learning elementary Chinese. The research process is as follows: research into existing materials has fostered a deeper understanding of Chinese teaching in Thailand and the status quo of students needs with regard to Chinese learning materials. Moreover, the research delves into Chinese language teaching theories as well as the requisite resources used in the creation of said materials. Subsequently, the intent was to design teaching materials and merge them into a practical application during the actual teaching process. After applying the materials, the author reviewed the extent to which they aided in the enhancement of the Thai student’s four basic language skills in Chinese. Finally, the author has prepared a Thai version of the proposed materials.
