Suffice it to say that learning any language remotely is far from ideal. Students tend to divert their attention away from the PowerPoint slides or even doze off during the online ZOOM session. What is worse is they could feel isolated without real-time in-person interaction with classmates and language instructors. This can lead to lower performance by the students compared to face-to-face classes. Over the past year and a half, I experimented on a number of methods on how to build an enjoyable and engaging online Mandarin Chinese classroom. In this talk, we will walk through some tips that are applicable to various levels of language classes.
