- Chinese as a foreign language, tone, teaching method, music
- The world's language is divided into two categories: tone language and non-tone language. The melodic tone of Chinese is the main feature that distinguishes it from other languages in pronunciation, so it is also the difficulty and emphasis of teaching Chinese as a foreign language. Based on the full analysis of the characteristics of Chinese tone music and the summary of predecessors' teaching experience, this paper puts forward the idea of using music as a bridge to assist tone teaching. The four tones of Chinese have the sense of melody and rhythm of music. By using the melody art of music to teach Chinese phonetics as a foreign language, we can get twice the result and make the teaching of complex tones lively, interesting, clear and effective. Meantime, "student-centered" teaching idea can be embodied.
