The workshop aims to address the challenges teachers face in effectively engaging students in language education. Utilising Chinese songs as a valuable resource, we can boost student motivation and overcome difficulties in pronunciation and cultural comprehension. Through this workshop, participants gain the resources to rekindle students' enthusiasm and provide a vibrant, culturally immersive Chinese language learning experience. Teachers are also encouraged to share their own creative contributions during the session.
