Abstract

The purpose of the article is to argue that the future trends of teaching Chinese characters should and will emphasize the use of embodied cognition and computer technologies in classrooms. We first compare the differences between CFL (Chinese as a Foreign Language) and ESL (English as a Second Language) by revealing the unique nature of Chinese characters. We then review and synthesize current literature on embodied cognition and use of technologies in a language classroom. We provide the argument that teachers should implement embodiment and technologies in classrooms for student’s better Chinese character learning. We further discuss practical implications and propose possible future research directions.
