About Me

I have been working as an artistic researcher and language teacher in Amsterdam for five years now. I am involved in artistic projects supported by prestigious funding and have presented my own artistic research at multiple international conferences. In my spare time I like to share Chinese culture with interesting and smart people. It is always rewarding to see people learning a completely other-worldly language with fantastic results. Language learning is absolutely more than a hobby and I look forward to embarking on this journey with you!

I love philosophy, literature and art but I am also very into dancing as a sort of sport and often go on impulsive walks around the cities.

I hope we can open up and nourish each other's life even more through battling Chinese together!

Hi, 你好! I am Zhou and have helped people from age 3 to more than 80 with all levels of Chinese. I have developed my unique curriculums and teaching methods for Chinese language lovers ranging from absolute beginners to highly advanced with more than 5 years of teaching experience here in Amsterdam. Unlike most institutions, I work no only with standard textbooks but also with thoughtfully curated contemporary Chinese content and Many More Surprises Along the Way. ;-) Chinese is easy and one can learn it WAY FASTER with the right guidance and method. From pronunciation to conversation making, from listening ability to in-depth cultural understanding, you name it. Life is precious and I look forward to spending it unlocking the rewards of learning a new language with you! See you soon, Zhou

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.

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, and what class 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.
