Please Register for DBCS 2020-21

Dear Parents,

Our registration is ongoing with a slow start. The 1st day of class will be on Aug 15. All registered students can pick up their textbook on 8/14, 6:30-8:00pm, at the front gate of Diamond Bar High School. We will send a reminder again next Wed.

If you have already registered for 2020-21 Chinese class, thank you very much. If you have not, please do. If you have friends that may be interested in taking our classes, please share our information with them and welcome them to join us.

This academic year will be very challenging for everyone. We understand that online language learning is not ideal. However, it is our belief that hard time calls for extraordinary efforts from all of us, teachers, students and parents. We think uninterrupted Chinese learning is crucial, because our experiences told us that some gap years or even months may be too much for the student to get back to normal learning pace and may therefore lose interest. Once that happens, it will be very hard to pick up later on.  In a language environment we live in, a slow but steady Chinese learning experience would be most beneficial. This is what we learned from years of both good examples and sad lessons.

Online learning is hard but not impossible. We will take several measures to ensure success.

1. Small class size, K to 1 levels will be capped at 6, the rest at 10.
2. Split sessions for lower levels, as youngsters often have hard time to stay focused for long sessions, we will split into two parts, one on Wed and one on Sat.
3. Free individual Chinese homework tutoring available for students that can not get enough help from the family

To help those families hard hit by the pandemic financially, we also will provide financial aid.

For many of us, Chinese classes are a part of our life. Now, the way we teach and learn will be changed, but we should not let students' Chinese learning be interrupted.

For returning students, if you have not registered yet, please send an email to us to register.
For new students, please use the following google form link to fill up the registration form.

各位家長,
新學年的註冊開始了,進展緩慢。開學是8月15日,所有註冊的學生將可以在8月14日, 6:30-8:00pm, 到鑽石吧高中大門口繳費和領書。我們下週三會再次提醒大家。

如果您已經註冊,謝謝!如果還沒有,請給學校發郵件,告知學生姓名就可以完成註冊,請盡快!請大家轉告親友,歡迎新同學!

新學年對我們每一個人都是挑戰。在線中文學習效果不理想。但是,我們相信非常困難的時期正是需要我們每一個老師,學生,家長的非常的努力來克服困難。從學校多年的經驗來看,中文學習最忌較長時間的中斷。學習中斷后,學生本來培養起來的學習中文的習慣會完全消失,已經掌握的中文內容也會遺忘,再次進入中文學習的狀態是很難的,這種困難隨著年齡的增長將更加難以克服。所以,在海外這樣中文學習的環境中,不怕慢,就怕站。保持中文學習的興趣与保持中文學習的習慣都是學好中文的必要條件。這些是我們從多年教學中的經驗和教訓中總結出來的。希望家長和同學們不要輕易放棄這一年的中文學習。一年的堅持,即使只能學到以前一年學到的八成,也是值得的。因為放棄,意味這很可能需要用兩年甚至更多的時間來彌補。

在線學中文不容易,但不是不可能。我們將採取很多措施來推動在線中文教學的成功:

1. 小班教學,確保老師可以對每一個同學有關注,也便於每一個同學參與教學活動
2. 對低年級的班實行分兩次上課,這樣每次上課時間較短,不會注意力不集中
3. 為家庭中缺乏中文學習指導資源和幫助的學生提供在線中文家庭作業輔導

另外我們還為因為疫情面臨經濟困難的家庭提供助學金。我們的目標是每一位想學中文的學生都能夠得到良好的中文教育。疫情擾亂了我們的生活節奏,但我們不應該讓學生的中文學習因此而中斷。

去年的在校生報名只需要給學校發郵件或者打電話確認就可以了。新學生報名請填Google Form的報名表。


Thank you very much!

DBCS
