    A native Mandarin Chinese teacher with 15+ years teaching experience

    I grew up in Beijing and has been living in Hong Kong for 20 years. I got my Putonghua teaching certificate at Hong Kong Chinese University and has been awarded the first-class grade in the National Putonghua Proficiency Test. I have been teaching Mandarin for over 15 years and have also worked as a Mandarin Chinese curriculum designer and instructor.

    My young students are mainly from GSIS, FIS, HKIS, AISHK, Kettett School, Hong Kong Academy, ESF, ISF. Besides the IB, I am familiar with IGCSE Chinese, as well as AP Chinese requirements.

    My adult courses are carried out in accordance with the HSK levels from Beginner onwards. I am using the good HSK framework, to help students progress milestone by milestone.

    I teach any degree of students, so even if you are a beginner, don't worry.

    In our first class, I will spend a little time asking about your needs, what class do you want to take, which allows me to find the right materials to make textbooks.

    I will design a course according to the needs of the students. Whether it is listening, speaking, or reading, I will make a textbook for you, so you can review it after class, which will make you progress quickly. If you have any questions during class or after class, please feel free to tell me.

    In the course of learning, I will use the example sentence instead of the explanation, so that you can clearly know the context in which the sentence can be used.

    You will have a textbook for each class, I will also give you homework after class if you want to practice more.

    You are also welcome to take a conversation with me. You can talk about any topic you are interested in, which will greatly enhance your conversational skills.

    What to learn in pandemic? Chinese! Easy, affordable and fun!
    Language learning should always be affordable, fun, and easy to begin with. Learn how to listen, speak, read, and write Chinese in one month, I'm here to help you. You'll find Chinese is just as easy to learn as I find English is, and there's no need to fear the different culture or language structure. Leave out the bulls*t, and stereotype, we can begin as soon as possible. I was born and raised in Yunnan of China, where borders Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam. Culture and language differences are well understood and embraced here!

    Click the Chinese language and Asian culture on/off-line with the help of an articulate and humorous native!
    Hey, I am Yu. Nice to meet you. This lesson can help you set out to learn how to speak Hanyu, read, and write Zhongwen. For this purpose, you will study the Chinese alphabet (Hanyu Pinyin), characters(Hanzi), vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, and common words and phrases. If you want to learn the Chinese language, you've found the right class! Course materials can be: -Standard Course HSK (for language ability test) -Experiencing Chinese (for immersive classes) -Learn Chinese with me (for schoolchildren and teenagers) -AP Chinese -....... -any tailor-made materials that interest you This course is designed in three versions for different kinds of participants: 1) A Beginner! - Have little or no prior knowledge of the Chinese language; - Want to learn how to make yourself understood in Chinese when traveling, for example, understanding and speaking common everyday words (and sentences) in different typical scenarios ; - Hope to express 1-10 and some larger numbers in China in speech or by gesture decently. *Some examples at this stage: - Hello! Thank you. How are you? - Sorry. / You're welcome! - I can speak Chinese! What's your name? - What's the date today? What's the time now? - I'd like a cup of coffee. Is this seat free? - (and other current Chinese usages in any scenarios you're interested in! ) **Naturally, pronunciation and the four vowel tones are an important part of the lessons, but participants also learn the principles of Chinese writing and gain an understanding of Chinese culture! 2) An Intermediate Learner - Have upper-intermediate knowledge of Chinese; - Need to increasingly enhance our active language skills, to expand your vocabulary, practice reading without Pinyin, and master more advanced grammar and fixed structures to be able to make longer sentences; - Interest yourself in being able to express your views on common everyday topics, like foods, drinks, gifts, weather, Chinese habits, and common practice. 3) An Advanced Learner - Can speak and understand Chinese reasonably well; - Attempt to deepen your understanding of Chinese culture and learn more advanced grammatical constructs to communicate more specific and complex ideas in Chinese, both verbally and in writing; - Focus on topics dealt with leisure and hobbies, hospitality, culture, arts, poetry, history, dynasties and civilization, of modern and ancient China. ***I have lived in China for over twenty years, traveled to many cites (including Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Hongkong, Macau, and so on), and have been educated at respected schools and universities. Currently, I am studying Social Sciences in the Netherlands and I am a fan of Chinese literature/Japanese anime/Marvel films, so it's also welcome that you would like to have an informative and interesting talk in Chinese about these topics. +China captures the imagination with its fascinating contrasts. A modern-day global economic entity that proudly upholds ancient traditions. Definitely, a good way to start learning more about China is by taking Chinese!
