A Foreign Online Language Academy for Kids Enters China

微龄:专业儿童在线外语教育登陆中国 菠菜爸爸 11-17 11:03 341 大 2016年11月12日,首家国际儿童多语言在线教育学院微龄在中国正式上线。微龄总部位于新加坡,提供针对儿童的英语、法语、西班牙语及德语在线课程。自2013年创办以来,全球学员遍布30多个国家,得到家长及相关教育机构一致好评。 针对儿童在线教育的专业师资 微龄专业儿童语言教师均为纯正母语者,全部拥有本科或研究生学历。所有教练不仅拥有TESOL英文教学资格证,而且均通过专门针对儿童在线教学的VOLT- YL的培训和考核认证。 据了解,目前国内已有多家在线教育机构,但教师培训及认证情况并不乐观。儿童教育专家指出,对于儿童语言在线教育,教师的培训尤为重要。因为儿童获取语言的方式和成人有很大差异,如果没有专门针对儿童的学习特性进行相关培训,那么教学效果很有可能并不理想。 “而目前国内多数学校所宣称的TESL/TEFL培训认证体系并非直接针对儿童,也不适合在线教学。” 微龄学习部总管Abbie Adeyeri介绍道,“不仅如此,教师所使用的课程体系同样需要针对儿童在线教育而特别开发” 微龄基于英国诺丁汉大学所研发PCA语言教学法,推出ViLLA©儿童在线语言学习框架。该体系针结合儿童大脑发育特点及微龄多年实际教学经验,约定了儿童语言学习的基础,微龄相对应的教学法、使用工具,以及优秀教练应具备的能力等,更适用于儿童在线学习环境。 个性教学开发儿童语言天赋 “个性是孩子的天性。对于儿童语言教学来说,寻找孩子的兴趣点,发挥孩子天性尤为重要”微龄联合创始人王子涵说道。 据相关研究结果显示,通过充分调动儿童学习积极性,儿童学习成绩可提高达43%。微龄所使用的ViLLA©儿童在线语言学习系统,就明确将以儿童兴趣为导向的上课方式作为其核心,并以此最大程度开发儿童语言潜能。 王子涵向记者说道: “没有孩子不喜欢学习外语,只是传统的教学法往往难以调动孩子积极性。微龄的个性化课程能够精准找到每一位孩子的独特个性,结合孩子的性格和喜好来量身打造最让他心动的个性化课程。不仅让孩子成绩提高,更让他乐在其中。” http://m.sohu.com/n/473421036/?_trans_=000115_3w
