Game-based Learning

We aim to stimulate learners' interest in learning through games, creating a relaxed and enjoyable classroom environment. WuKong Chinese courses combine teaching aids (10%), courseware (20%), tones and intonation (30%), and bodily expressions (40%) in an effort to boost learners’ intrinsic motivation for learning and thinking, while consolidating what they have already acquired. During games, we discover the different personalities of each learner, which helps support our personalized instruction.

Learners will acquire new knowledge in each class, including new characters, words, sentence patterns and Pinyin.When students learn new sentence patterns, we will simulate a scenario involving watching TV, and provide corresponding pronunciation (natural human voice) to make content easier to remember. During practice sessions, role-playing games are used to make course content more compelling, while also helping learners to use what they learn flexibly.
