Teaching approach:
I’m a very patient and adaptable person, always have a smile on my face. I understand the cultural differences, difficulties and setbacks of learning a 2nd language.
In my lessons, I teach using a variety of multimedia such as Youtube, animations or video and discuss a range of interesting topics, focused on teaching the most useful words and expressions in real life situations, sharing opinions with you in a relaxed conversation.
I interact with my students, encouraging them to talk and practice all the time helping them to improve their pronunciation and use of phrases.
I customise the lessons according to individual interests and needs, happy to use different textbooks upon your request. Before the lessons start, you can contact me to allow me to know your level in Chinese and requirements.

Yu
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!

Chinese Mandarin Lesson for all levels, online and offline
I am a Chinese teacher. Currently, I live in Rotterdam, the Netherlands🇳🇱. I can offer online and offline classes at all ages and levels. The offline class is only for students based in the Netherlands. Due to Covid situation, right now only online class available. 🎓 master degree in linguistics certificate of teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages 🇨🇳 two years’ teaching Chinese to adults in China 🇫🇷 two years teaching children (5-15yrs old) at an international school in France 🇳🇱 currently teaching children from 4 yrs old at a Chinese school in the Netherlands ❤️ languages 🇨🇳🇬🇧🇫🇷🇳🇱 travel theatre music museum My teaching approach is to integrate the stories of Characters into lessons because I believe that the most powerful element of Chinese is its characters and they are the root of this language. The basic characters were originally drawings, which are closely related to their origin, culture, and history. Therefore I have a special interest in telling stories of Chinese characters and more importantly encouraging students to discover its beauty and build a relationship with them. If you learn some stories or even tell some stories by yourself, it'll be easier for you to understand the language and culture. Apart from learning characters, the purpose of the class is to enable: - beginners to communicate in Chinese for daily use purpose and read and write in short paragraphs; - intermediate students to communicate easily with native speakers and read and write short articles; - advanced students to communicate fluently with native speakers over a wide range of topics and read and write long articles. Learning materials including homework are designed/selected by myself based on students' level and needs. If you'd like to learn Chinese with me, please feel free to contact me or book lessons directly!

Handle Chinese Language Step by Step, no matter which level
As a professional, experienced and enthusiastic tutor, I have taught Chinese for over three years and taken the training of teaching Chinese as the second language. You may think it's a bit too difficult to handle this language. But if you find the right way to learn it, you can find the learning process is interesting and easy. I adapt my methodology according to each student's abilities and unique requirements in order to ensure that the most value is gained from each and every lesson. If you need any help in learning Chinese, or preparing for exams or practising with a native speaker, please don't hesitate ;)

Xingying
Learn Chinese from A1 to C2, from having fun to prepare test
I run private lessons, where all levels are welcome. But if you’re a total beginner then I offer basic classes to help you find the way to get into it. I develop diverse methods of teaching for the students. For the around 5-8 years old kids, I would like to set certain games to play with them, thereby the kids can learn the new language during the interaction and communication. In this way, different media, like color pictures, puppets, or storybooks are essential to make the course very attractive. For the teenager or advanced students, a structuralized teaching content based on scenarios or textbook could help the students to develop their language capacity efficiently in different aspects – listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Besides, I would like to give a deeper perspective for the Chinese- not only learning the language from the textbooks, but also the knowledge of the language, the culture, and the literature. Also, based on your need and situation, we choose different textbooks and make a personal teaching plan for you.

Huong
Private Chinese/ Vietnamese teacher in Hanoi/ Online (to French/English/Vietnamese speakers)
As you studied your mother tone, learning Chinese also start from listening, copy, speak, read and write. Pronunciation is the very first step to start to speak a language, and it's inseparable from listening. Then from word, we build phrases, then conversations by differents topics that are useful in daily life. Through the personal tips/videos/songs/ interactive game or language missions, I'll guide you how to practice effectively and gains.

Peishan
Chinese tutor 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.

I find ways to be creative all the time so the books and video materials I use in my class are always fun! Learning Chinese is not just about enhancing your vocabulary or your skills, improving your accent, nor perfecting your grammar. Learning a certain language is about bridging gaps and breaking barriers. So in my class, you would expect that you are not only going to learn, but at the same time, you are going to have fun-filled moments during the quality time we are gonna spend together. Making friends is one of my best skills and I easily get along well with people. I believe we will learn something from each other.

Online Mandarin/Chinese Course (Beijing Syllabus) for Complete Adult/Teenage Beginners
Course Description: This course is specially catered to adults and teenagers who have zero or minimal knowledge in Mandarin/Chinese and wish to learn Mandarin/Chinese from the very beginning. Students will learn the course using mainly 3 books: (1) Mandarin Conversation Book (with learning elements in conversational role playing, grammar and Chinese culture & tradition) (2) Chinese textbook (with learning elements in listening, speaking, reading and writing skills) (3) Chinese workbook (with plenty exercises and drillings complementing for the core four skills found in the Chinese textbook). At the very beginning of the course, students will learn the Hanyu Pinyin System (Mandarin phonics & its notation system); getting to recognize and pronounce Mandarin vowels, consonants and their combinations correctly. In addition, students will also learn the four Mandarin tones accurately. Once students have mastered the Hanyu Pinyin System and the four Mandarin tones, they will venture into learning daily conversational Mandarin, Chinese vocabulary & essential grammar rules; as well as appreciating the Chinese culture and tradition, of which are found in the Mandarin Conversation Book. In order to further develop speaking & listening skills, and picking up different critical skills such as reading and writing simplified Chinese characters, students will also study the other two books at the same time: The Chinese textbook and workbook for these purposes. Indeed, these two books are arranged with the same topics sequentially; and therefore are interlinked and they complement closely with each other. On the other hand, the Mandarin Conversation Book contains themes that can also be mapped very well onto the Chinese textbook and workbook. For instance, after students have learnt conversing in a dialogue on the topic of family members in the Mandarin Conversation Book, they will then learn more about reading and writing simplified Chinese characters on the same theme (i.e. family members) in the Chinese textbook and workbook. As such, these three books are used interchangeably as they share common themes/topics that will enhance students’ learning more effectively in an organized and coherent manner; providing a lot of role playing, oral and written practice work for students to work on. As for the learning aids, students will get to listen to a lot of audio playing during lessons, mostly for developing listening skills; and listening to conversations. Besides this, I will also use the internet to browse for specific information related to the lessons during teaching and show these to students. Moreover, there will be ample opportunities for students to practise dialogues/conversations with me. In short, students will get wholesome Mandarin/Chinese learning from this course, without getting a compromise in any of the core four language skills – Listening, speaking, reading and writing. And certainly, the ability to speak, communicate and understand well in basic Mandarin conversations would be the most appealing motivation in learning Mandarin, and this is exactly what this course is providing for you and what you are looking for! Do not miss this precious Mandarin learning opportunity! Mandarin is the second most-spoken international language, after English; and it is also spoken by most people in the world – more than 1.4 billion people! Flame and propel your passion in learning Mandarin! Come and join this exciting course and learn with a highly-experienced, qualified and warm native Mandarin speaker and educator!
