Local Chinese Textbook Published 孔子学院出版本土汉语教材

A new Chinese language textbook for young beginners, Hanyu Qihang, (Book 1), compiled by the Confucius Institute staff, came off the press at the beginning of the new school year. It is the first textbook for school beginners of Chinese language designed especially for Australian school students. Based on the syllabus of Youth Chinese Test (YCT), a standard Chinese proficiency test system for young learners, this textbook aims to provide the students in Australian schools with integrated and effective, practical and interesting materials for learning Chinese. The textbook not only serves as language learning material but also resource for understanding Chinese people and culture.  Meanwhile, it also well reflects the features of Australian social and cultural environment.

Currently, students in Shenton College, Hale School and Creaney Primary School are the first to use this new textbook in their Chinese classes.  Meanwhile, the Confucius Institute staff are compiling Book 2 with the hope that this local textbook will facilitate the teaching and learning Chinese language in WA schools.


《汉语启航》为汉语零起点的中小学生编写,适用对象包括公立和私立中小学的汉语初学者,同时也适用于其他相应水平的中文教学。这套教材有以下特点:1)针对性强。教学内容设计依据YCT考试对于汉语语言知识和技能的要求,学完上册可以达到YCT二级考试水平。 2)实践性强。教学重点突出,教材的话题和内容贴近学生生活。侧重听说训练、在日常生活情景中培养学生的汉语交际能力。对汉字要求能认读,不作书写要求。3)趣味性强。教材内容生动有趣、呈现形式活泼、插入歌曲游戏,增强互动性。4)注重文化融合。教材力求学习中国语言与了解中国文化和社会生活相结合;每篇附有英文的中国文化常识,让学生了解中国的国情、文化以及同龄人,增强学生的多元文化意识。5)凸显本土特色。教材内容尽量体现西澳当地人文自然特色,教学容量尽量考虑到西澳州的学期和课程设置等因素。

目前,西澳州的Hale 学校、Shenton 中学、Creaney 小学等中小学已经开始采用《汉语启航》为中文课程的教材。西澳孔子学院正在组织全体教师设计课件、建立教学资源库,作为教材的配套支持体系。同时,在听取各方面反馈意见和建议后,西澳孔子学院将尽快着手组织《汉语启航》(下册)的编写。期待着《汉语启航》这套专门为澳州中小学生编写的中文本土教材为当地中文教学带来新的活力。


Chinese New Year celebrated in schools 学校春节庆祝活动丰富多彩

Chinese New year is not only the most important traditional festival to Chinese people around the world, but also a good opportunity for promoting cross-cultural awareness, especially in a country like Australia, which embraces cultural diversity. 19 Feb is Chinese New Year’s Day and during the festival week many schools are in a festive atmosphere with Chinese decoration of the character of “福” (blessing), Chinese knots, lanterns, red scrolls, etc. The teachers and volunteers from Confucius Institute in more than 20 schools including those in Albany and Bunbury help to organize the Chinese cultural activities, which enhances students’ knowledge about Chinese New Year while engaging in learning New Year greetings, decorating classrooms, discussing the New Year customs, making/tasting dumplings, receiving red packets,  writing “福”, and paper cutting. It is really enjoyable learning experience.


学说祝福 学说春节问候和祝福语,是与中文教学最密切相关的文化内容。Bunbury 的Dalyellup和Tuart Forest小学等学校的中文老师都教学生说春节问候语,并在教学活动中反复运用,还鼓励学生用中文向家人和朋友送问候、表祝福。

传统故事 春节文化源远流长,内容丰富。Methodist 女校、Lance Holt等学校的中文教师都借助了丰富生动的视频和图片给不同年级的学生讲解了中国十二生肖和“年”的故事以及春节的由来,让学生理解中国新年的独特传统。

了解羊年 2015年是羊年,学校的春节文化活动中凸显了“羊”以增加活动的趣味。季承老师在Creaney 小学教学生学习汉字“羊”,让学生把山羊的图片和“羊”字进行对比,进而理解了汉字“羊”的象形渊源。

体验年俗 邱理萌老师在Shenton中学组织选修汉语的七年级学生讨论中国“春节”的历史风俗,让他们清楚了贴年画、贴对联、贴门神、贴窗花、倒贴福字、穿新衣、发红包等一系列春节习俗的起源。在Perth 现代中学,为期一周的中国新年文化活动让学生们有机会开心地体验吃饺子、拿红包、玩游戏等中国新年庆祝习俗。

图片展览 王振宇老师在Hale学校用图片介绍了了传统的新年习俗,如大扫除、购年货、穿新衣、贴春联福字、看春晚、包水饺、做年糕、拜年、发红包、放鞭炮等。Morley 中学以板报形式展出了具有“春节”元素的图片,庆祝中国新年。叶飞老师在Great Southern 文法学校布置了“中国新年”展板,向师生介绍中国新年文化。

书法剪纸 St. Hilda’s 女校等中小学组织了以写“福”字、剪“春”字和中国传统吉祥图案的书法和剪纸活动。学生们用剪纸作品装饰贺年卡和红包,在动手制作过程中真切地体验中国新年的欢乐气氛。

学唱歌曲  春节期间,Highgate小学、Dalyellup 学校等都根据学生的年龄阶段和教学内容的重点,教学生唱喜气洋洋的《新年好》、《恭喜发财》等年味十足的中国歌曲,促进学生中文学习的同时也增添了节日的欢乐。

红包抽奖 Mercedes女校在春节前两天进行了“红包抽奖”活动。每个学生随机抽取内有奖券的红包,并需说出中文的新年祝福语方可领奖。抽奖游戏新鲜又刺激,学生在游戏中了解了中国过年送红包的习俗。

品味春节 在Oberthur 小学,几位中文老师一起为全校教职员工准备了中国新年早茶,他们品尝煎饺、汤圆等中国小吃。张洁绮老师为大家表演了中国茶道,介绍了中国人过年的祝福语。校长Bamber先生还为教职员工准备了中国特色的红包。

Chinese students visit UWACI 中国学生参观西澳孔子学院

A group of 24 Chinese teenagers visited the Confucius Institute at UWA on Monday 23 February and talked excitedly with the learners of Chinese language in the beginning class.  They performed for the adult learners and sang the Chinese song “You and Me” with them, who were also excited to try their newly-learned Chinese phrases to greet the young Chinese visitors. The students were from Dacheng Yuejiawan Experimental School in Hangzhou on a study tour to WA during the Chinese New Year holiday. They are visiting St  Marks Anglican Community School, with which the sister-school relationship was established last October when the school leaders joined the Principal Study Tour to Hangzhou China co-organized by Confucius Institute and Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia (AISWA). It is the students’ first study tour to Australia  and they enjoy the schooling experience in St Marks School and the exploration of Perth and the nearby areas.  Confucius Institute is committed to promoting the school exchanges between WA and China for better cross-cultural awareness and mutual understanding among the young people.



杭州大成岳家湾实验学校是西澳州珀斯市圣马克社区学校(St Mark’s Anglican Community School)的姐妹学校。这两所学校是在西澳孔子学院2014年10月组织西澳独立学校联合会校长团访问杭州期间结成友好关系的。与他们同时结成姐妹学校关系的共有8对杭州和珀斯的学校。

2月13日晚,西澳大学Dolphin剧院外面孔子学院京剧脸谱图案的彩旗迎风飘逸,剧院内座无虚席,中国驻珀斯总领事黄亲国博士、澳中工商会西澳分会主席Adam Handley先生、诺贝尔奖获得主、西澳大学的Barry Marshall教授等与珀斯各界200余名观众饶有兴趣地观赏了由西澳大学孔子学院精彩呈献的“迎羊年春节文艺晚会”。今年的“春晚”是孔子学院首次自主筹办,在一个多月的筹备过程中,得到了当地学校、专业演艺团体和人士的大力支持,为珀斯的中国农历新年庆祝和多元文化活动增添了光彩。本台晚会有以下三个特点:

中小学生的节目精彩纷呈 近年来,孔子学院通过支持当地中小学的中文教学,与学校建立了合作伙伴关系。这次演出就得到了合作学校的支持。如Shenton中学的爵士乐团演奏、Oberthur小学的舞蹈与武术表演、Rossmoyne 中学的扯铃、Perth Modern中学的黑管协奏《小河淌水》和街舞《青春》等,这些节目用不同的艺术形式展现了学校课程中的中国文化元素。

中国民歌民乐的专业演绎 中国音乐渊源流长,不仅是华人文化基因的组成部分,也深澳洲当地人民的喜爱。西澳华裔兄弟乐队的民乐演奏的《赛马》、《春江花月夜》等中国民乐、St George 学院的小提琴钢琴协奏曲《梁祝》、歌手张晓佳女士演唱的民歌《芦花》、歌手Craig 和Kate演唱的《茉莉花》和《夜上海》等名歌,都以较高的艺术水准展现了中国音乐的魅力。

孔子学院的师生登台表演 孔子学院少儿合唱团的孩子们以稚嫩的童声吟诵了经典古诗《咏鹅》,并用中文演唱了《新年好》。孔子学院新来的志愿者教师李华和赵寒治为观众呈现了题为《武韵》的中华武术组合表演。最后,孔子学院教师合唱团以澳大利亚民歌《剪羊毛》和华人世界耳熟能详的歌曲《让世界充满爱》压轴本次羊年春晚。

整台晚会呈现出喜迎羊年、中西合璧、师生同乐的气氛。演出结束后,Handley先生、黄总领事、Barry Marshall教授以及孔子学院院长等登上舞台与孔子学院的全体教师一起合影,祝贺演出成功。
