Chutian Metro Daily (Journalist Le Yi) reported a number of foreign prospective teachers took internships in Hubei, which has already been for 5 days both in the second and third kindergarten of Hubei provincial authority. Eight undergraduate students majored in Pre-school education from Telemark University College have come to Hubei kindergartens to accumulate international education experience. This is also the first time for foreign prospective teachers coming to Hubei as interns.
25th, February, journalists went to the second kindergarten of Hubei provincial authority to have a close look at their interaction with Chinese children.
As shown in the picture, the senior class 1 had an activity called making hot dry noodles. Lisa prepared hot dry noodles with special Norwegian taste and fed Xinxin (a child). Xinxin liked it very much, which made Lisa quite happy. She smiled proudly to her friend Theresa. In junior class 6, Ning played an acrobatic performance, all the children thumbed up and shouted “wonderful” to her.
A few days ago, when these four foreign teachers just came, the children felt a little bit surprise and fear. Gradually, the four Norwegian girls eliminated the children's strangeness by their sweet smile and hug. They arrived at kindergarten at 7:30 every day. However the arranged time is 7:45 actually.
Ms Yi said “In their eyes, the responsibility of pre-school teachers is not only to take care of the kids, but also to play with them”. Now the four Norwegian teachers are the most popular teachers in the kindergarten.
Ms Li also said “when the four foreign teachers play with kids, they usually sit on the floor together with the kids, which make children feel kindly and friendly. Moreover, they are eager to learn new things. I asked them to learn some simple Chinese words and phrases in order to communicate with the kids more easily. Then they brought simplified Chinese books the other day and they can speak around 20 Chinese sentences now”.
As is understood by the journalist, Telemark University College has signed a new agreement with Hubei provincial child education school on 7th of April, 2010. According to the agreement, on 13th of February, 2011, there would be eight students from Telemark University College coming to Wuhan to have 35 days’ internship in four kindergartens respectively.
