ABSTRACT

The Volunteer Chinese Teachers take the task of teaching Chinese as a foreign language and spreading Chinese culture. Their job plays an important role. However, because of the lack of teaching skill training and teaching experience, their teaching adaptation problem gradually revealed. Using the methods of questionnaire survey and interview, the thesis takes the volunteers in primary and secondary schools in South Korea as an example, to study the problem of teaching adaptation, including environment of teaching Chinese abroad, Chinese textbooks and other teaching resources, volunteer’s working pressure, influence of personal factors, life adaptation, learning and training before being abroad. Based on analysis of the survey data, we draw the following conclusions: the staffs in Korean Schools are friendly to the volunteer Chinese teachers, and their experience in Chinese teaching and management has a great influence on the work of volunteers. Most of the schools have their own Chinese textbooks, but the Volunteers need to get some teaching materials which are mainly from the internet. Many volunteers have a large amount of work. Some volunteers are not familiar with Chinese teaching situation and the students’ study habits in South Korea, which brings them some difficulties. So many volunteers need more than three months to adapt to their work in Korea. Most of the respondents think that the training and learning before going abroad are necessary, but that aren’t targeted. At last, the thesis gives some suggestions to the administration department of volunteer selection, pre-service training before going abroad, the universities and the volunteers themselves. We hope that these suggestions can not only provide some reference on pre-job training of volunteer Chinese teachers, but also help volunteer Chinese teachers adapt the job of teaching Chinese and culture communication as soon as possible when they go abroad.
