只能用320个汉字的中文写作比赛开! 始! 了! Chinese Writing Contest

by | Jul 25, 2021 | News

众所周知,学习中文的难点之一是汉字数量庞大。对此,一个普遍的观点是,学中文就是要看一共学了多少个汉字,汉字学得越多越好。于是,学生之间会经常互相问: “你学了多少个汉字了?”

可惜的是,当学生集中精力学习一个又一个新汉字的时候,当他们把目标设在尽快学会一千个、两千个、甚至三千个汉字的时候,有效的阅读和写作就被忽略了。当积累汉字成为重点时,学习就变得机械、单一和重复。学生就好像是在战场打仗一样,持续不断地挑战着一个又一个接踵而至的新汉字,花了不少时间和精力,有时精疲力竭,却完全体会不到任何阅读和写作带来的那种发自内心的愉悦感。

这种学习方法其实是一种对中文本质的误解。学中文完全可以换个学法。要让学习从一开始就津津有味,乐趣无穷,重点得放在阅读和写作上。

为了鼓励学生多读多写,位于香港的中文教育发展公司 MSL Master 连同几个志同道合的伙伴一起举办了2021年首届中文写作比赛,邀请全世界的学生使用有限的320个汉字发挥创意,进行创作,并赢取丰富的奖品。奖品包括:

  • 一套 MSL Master 的中文读写课程包
  • Du Chinese 免费使用一年
  • 两本 Mandarin Companion 出版的小说
  • Maayot 免费使用半年
  • 获奖作品由 Imagin8 Press 出版

有兴趣的同学马上开始准备吧!此次比赛将于9月30日截止收稿。

It’s time to be creative

Learning Chinese takes people into a wonderful creative field which is full of joy and pleasant surprises.

Students toy around elements of Chinese language and create interesting conversations and great stories. It’s like playing with all those small pieces of Lego. We are only limited by our own imaginations.

This creative field should be open to students from day one.

However, the theme of learning Chinese is often dominated by the question “how many characters have you learned?” This question has led many students to focus on accumulating Chinese characters. They spend so much time and energy either to look up characters or to memorise them. But these efforts hardly bring any intoxicating sense of delight. This is unfortunate. Accumulating characters for the sake of accumulating characters does not enhance students’ learning experience, nor help them develop their Chinese skills.

The real question we should ask is “how much Chinese reading and writing have you done?” With this question, students’ focus is turned into reading for ideas and writing for creation. Amazing learning results can be achieved.

Therefore, in order to encourage students to read more and to write more, this first ever Chinese Writing Contest is launched, inviting learners of Chinese worldwide to show their creativity using 320 Chinese characters.
