Learning Mandarin as a foreign language is not an easy task because there are so many alien elements to the language. Here we will put forth a teaching alternative to help students to overcome their fear and make the learning process easier. Teaching with a blog is like putting all the pieces of the jigsaw together for our students. Furthermore, the blog empowers students to share the teaching and learning experience. They will take on the ownership of the blog and make the learning become a very personal experience. We will demonstrate some of our teaching and share our experience. Specifically, we will look at how the blog can enhance all four skills effectively. We will also discuss how we can achieve this under the pressure of teaching commitments. Finally, we will examine how teaching with a blog lends itself well to the future of flip learning and online schooling.
