Abstract

This paper provides the background to a doctoral project examining the use of enhanced technology and music in teaching English to Chinese children. It begins with a brief overview of the literature on this topic, pointing out that few of these studies have focused on nursery students in a Chinese context. Next, the first author describes her short-term preliminary experience in Glasgow as one of the teaching staff in a summer camp for ethnic Chinese students. In this course, the author tried applying the combination of enhanced technology and music in class, and after the class, the students, teachers and parents all gave positive feedback and comments on the learning results. This experience encouraged the first author and will inform the design her doctoral fieldwork on teaching English to Chinese nursery students using similar teaching methods.
