English Abstract

This paper explores the roles that business Chinese teachers can play in the classroom. Generally speaking, the teacher role is closely related to teaching style. A teacher would play neither one single role nor many roles in the classroom at the same time. In terms of the teachers’ self-recognition and students’ expectations, the research aims to identify the business Chinese teacher roles in priority. This paper first begins with literature review on the definitions of various types of teacher role, followed by the report of research method and survey results. Based on the teacher and student perspectives, the paper ends with the most important business Chinese teacher roles for future teacher training and development. These teacher roles include: motivator, communicative learning facilitator, learning behavior controller, and fair evaluator. This research paves the way for the future research to understand the choice of teacher role and its impact on teaching and learning outcomes.
