Chinese Lesson and cultural exchange for all levels students

Hi, I'm Siqi, a native Chinese grown up in Sichuan and Guangdong. I am a master student studying at the University of Oxford and I have had over 10 foreign students who learned Chinese with me. I love sharing my language and my culture with new friends, and I am good at designing classes for all levels' students. The class will be highly personalised and is for everyone who is interested in learning Chinese for business/study/fun.

I love traveling and I believe that we'll be good friends! For my previous students, I love taking them to Chinese restaurants/shops to study Chinese in an immersive environment. If you are interested in that, don't hesitate to sign up :)

Looking forward to meeting you online/in person.

Hello, my name is Yunus Emre. I'm Turkish and live in Izmir. I can't wait to learn Turkish with you.🤗 I love teaching Turkish. If you want, I would like to briefly tell you how we can learn Turkish.🤓 First, in our first lesson, we determine your level together📝 and start our lessons suitable for your level. Our lessons include reading📕, writing✏️, listening🧏🏽‍♀️, and speaking🗣️. I want you to read and translate reading passages in the reading section. Here, we write down and memorize the new words and verbs we learn.🧠 Then, after listening to a text related to our topic, I want you to explain in Turkish what you understood. Of course, understanding the texts might be a bit difficult at first, but we overcome this and learn together. 💪Then, we come to the most fun part, of course, the speaking part. In this part, we talk about the texts we have read and listened to before. Of course, we try to use new words and verbs more. I love people who talk a lot in my classes. It's not a problem even if it gives me a bit of a headache🤕😁 As long as you learn🙏❤️. And finally, I give you a writing assignment related to the topic and eagerly await our next lesson. Also, you can contact me anytime outside of class.📲 I look forward to having you in my class and getting to know you and learning Turkish together. Take care.👋🏾
