The stereochemistry is an important and difficult part in the teaching of organic chemistry. The application of different teaching languages in stereochemistry teaching is discussed from three aspects. How to reveal the characteristics of a concept in a concise manner, especially the short description of the key elements of enantiomerism in as short as 32 words; how to use creative metaphor and figurative expressions to help vivid understanding; how to promote the intuition and improve the efficiency of study using multimedia technology.

Key words: Stereochemistry, Teaching language, Key element, Metaphor, Multimedia
