Learn Italian or Mandarin Chinese with Francesca! Fun and Online

Hello!
I’m from Rome and am fluent in Italian, English and Mandarin Chinese. Previously studied in Italy for 5 years, I improved my Chinese translation skills while taking a double BA in Mandarin Chinese and Art History at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London (SOAS). Due to my interest in Chinese language and culture, I had the opportunity to live and study in Beijing for several years. I passed the Chinese Proficiency Test HSK5, and now self-studying for HSK6 (top level).
My experiences in translation (Chinese- English; English-Chinese) have been of exhibition materials and conferences in Beijing, as well as part 3 years translations for Italian companies working in hospitality and events. Thus, after studying Chinese for almost 10 years and English for 17 years, I can guarantee the highest level of accuracy in my translations. On top of that, professional attitude and flexibility allow me to successfully accomplish any project needed. Please, do contact me at any time.

About Me

Hello,

I’m from Rome and am fluent in Italian, English and Mandarin Chinese. Previously studied in Italy for 5 years, I improved my Chinese translation skills while taking a double BA in Mandarin Chinese and Art History at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London (SOAS). Due to my interest in Chinese language and culture, I had the opportunity to live and study in Beijing for several years. In Beijing, I taught English to preschool children and teenagers. I passed the Chinese Proficiency Test HSK5, and now self-studying for HSK6 (highest level). If you are interested in studying IELTS or HSK, I can give you effective tips to succeed. My style of teaching is to have active conversations supported by grammar exercises. It will be a fun interactive class, different from those at school! Looking forward to hearing from you!

Ciao! I'm from Rome but I have a clean articulated Italian accent and clean diction. If you need to work on your conversation skills, I can help you reduce your accent, improve fluency and also use the Italian hand gestures! Don't worry if you are a total beginner, an expert or in the middle, my teaching method is based on active conversation supported by grammar exercises, quizzes and everyday phrases to help you get the most out from the first lesson. The post-session exercises will be tailor made according to your level and needs. You will be followed both online and offline: I will be always open for questions before and after the lesson and actively helping with the most suitable study method for you. My students are mainly English native speakers, but I'm able to teach Italian also to Mandarin Chinese speakers.

Emma
- Italian language; Italian course or conversation.
- I´m a professional Italian teacher from Italy, now living in Rome. I have 8 years teaching experience. I am very patient and I love to make a relaxed and friendly class environment. I have qualifications and experience teaching at different levels and in different contexts. I can help the student to improve the oral, written, and comprehension skills. Most important is that each course is based on the needs, interests and availability of the student. - The method is mainly what is called communicative, aimed at stimulating the student to speak immediately and put the focus on the functional aspect of the language. For beginners, I usually follow a specific program, I prepare a course and for each lesson I send students the files that I scan from the various books. Also the lessons can be essentially developed as conversations on specific subjects.

Peishan
Chinese turor for Chinese/ Mandarin (simplified and traditional )
Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.
