About meI am Yue Ling Yu, born in China. I came to Hickory, North Carolina in 2001, and lived there for 14 years before I moved to Denver in 2015.Being a foreign language teacherI am currently a full time Mandarin language teacher at World Compass Academy teaching from first grade through to the seventh grade. We have a solid Mandarin teaching curriculum in line with the state foreign language standard. The goal of my teaching is to create an environment for the students to be interested in learning the language through diverse activities such as culture sharing, folk-song singing, dancing and martial arts exercise.Teaching about a Chinese traditionMid-Autumn Festival is on the 15th day of the eighth month of every year in the lunar calendar. This year it is Oct. 4. The festival celebrates the unity of family and friends, who pray for fulfillment of future and life. The moon is a full moon on the day representing unity and fulfillment of dreams. It also celebrates good harvest because lunar August is the golden season when the crops and fruits are ripening. That is why the festival is also called in particular the Harvest Moon Festival. Our students celebrate the festival with moon-related story sharing, new words learning and Mooncake eating. Even the homework is about the Moon Festival!Learning a foreign languageLearning a foreign language can broaden one’s view not only by language but also by culture. These view-opening advantages can help the students perform better in academic studies as well. Young people learn second languages easier and quicker. World Compass Academy is an international-focused school and we want to prepare our students well to become an excellent member in the global community.My adviceI think it’s good to try to help others because “Helping others is helping oneself.”
