This session is designed to further explore the effectiveness of image and rhyme in Chinese teaching. The presenter will discuss how teachers can use narrative images linked with topic-specific rhymes to engage students in high-level language learning. Through the chanting of the rhymes, students are able to increase the fluidity of their sentence building. With this engaging method of practicing basic phrase patterns, students become more confident in their essay writing. Detailed images are utilized as reference points for the rhymes, thus creating a multi-modal learning technique. In Chinese.
