Did you know that pronouncing students’ names correctly is a signal that their names and identities are honored? This can foster a sense of belonging and build positive relationships in the classroom, which are crucial for healthy social, psychological, and educational outcomes. With more than 50% of the international undergraduate student population at VT being from China, learning to pronounce Chinese names is a great place to start. This session is designed to provide a basic guide to pronouncing Chinese names.
