It was such a surprise that I am part of the 2018 UVa STARTALK Program. It is the program that changes my point of view about teaching. Influenced by Tseng laoshi, Zhong laoshi, Cai laoshi and all my peer teachers, I started to think about teaching in terms of effectiveness and authenticity. I feel inspired when Tseng laoshi asked us “How many types of authentic materials do you have?”, when we ask each other “Is this question communicative?” I know there are so many take-aways waiting for me to apply in my classroom and I will do my best to achieve them in the future.
