Based on the interviews with teachers and their students and classroom observation, the Online teaching and learning activities puts some amount of stress and burden on TCSL (teaching Chinese as a second language) teachers when they have to make sure their online teaching has the same good effects as their offline teaching. This paper centres on the features of online teaching from TCSL teachers’ perspective, and make a detailed analysis on the factors contributing their fears and anxieties from 3 different angles of physical teaching settings, their foreign students and TCSL teachers themselves.
