Online English Reading Class
Online English Reading Class was first started by Youth Group's Cindy and Heidi Wang, in March 2017. During the school year, we meet online once every week to teach elementary school students in 5th and 6th grade, to help them improve their English.
In this class, we first teach them phonics, which has helped their pronunciation and grammar improve greatly. After phonics, we read a short story to the class. While reading the story in English we explain important points in Chinese so that students are able to understand the story and enjoy learning English. Hearing native English speakers read to them helps enhance the students’ English listening and reading skills. Once we finish the story, we begin a short lesson and discussion on a topic related to the story, introducing some aspects of American culture.
Through our Online English Reading Class, we help students in rural China improve their pronunciation and learn English. In the process, we introduce them to American culture and help broaden their horizons.
