Abstract

Chinese character teaching as first language mainly refers to the Chinese elementary student's Chinese character literacy education in China, with the literacy teaching of low-grade students in primary school as the object of investigation. Chinese character teaching as a second language mainly refers to Chinese character teaching in teaching Chinese as foreign language, namely Chinese character teaching for non-native Chinese learners. The main purpose is to let the non-native Chinese learners can read Chinese characters and cultivate their Chinese written communication skills. This paper compares elementary school’s Chinese literacy education and teaching Chinese as second language and analyzes the connection and differences between them which can improve the teaching in Chinese as a second language.
