Chinese Mandarin classes and Chinese traditional culture

This class is composed of two parts.
1. Chinese Mandarin. In this class, you will learn Chinese listening and speaking. Do not worry about your current level, because I will give you a tailored plan according to your own situation. A few lessons later, you will be able to use Chinese to learn courses taught in Chinese and communicate with others in life. Or if you are preparing for your Chinese Proficiency Test(HSK), I can help you with some targeted training, such as grammar mistake checking or writing.
2. Chinese traditional culture. In this part, you will have a chance to explore the magical world of Chinese traditional culture.
Do you know the importance of the 24 Solar Terms? Do you want to know the origin of the Spring Festival? After learning this course, your Chinese will become much better especially your understanding of this language and this country.

About Me

Becoming a Chinese teacher of foreign students and leading them to fall in love with Chinese and Chinese traditional culture is one of my biggest dreams.

Hello! My name is Jianlin. I'm from Sichuan Province, a place famous for hot pots and pandas. If you are interested in Chinese food, I believe I can introduce you to many wonderful things about Chinese food (such as different types of spices, cuisines, and cooking methods).

Firstly, I am sure that I am very professional. I have a Mandarin Level II, Grade A certificate issued by the State Language Commission, which is a necessary condition to become a radio/TV host or a Chinese phonetics teacher.

Besides, I am experienced in teaching children, teenagers, and adults to learn Chinese.

- Children: I taught a 4-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy. For the 4-year-old girl, I taught her learn to sing Chinese songs, recognize simple Chinese characters, and have daily conversations. For the 7-year-old boy, I taught him Chinese words, making sentences with Chinese words, and topic-oriented daily conversations (such as talking about the weather, travel, hobbies, and food).
- Teenagers: I taught a 14-year-old girl. We use Chinese test materials to learn Chinese. Specifically, the textbooks we use are Chinese Book 5 and HSK book 4. In addition, I will teach her to write Chinese characters.
- Adults: I taught a man over 40. He is very interested in Chinese culture so our main form of teaching is daily dialogue. In daily conversations, I will explain to him the twenty-four solar terms, the twelve zodiac signs, the eight major cuisines, and major festivals.

Finally, I am passionate about teaching Chinese and enjoy talking with every student. I love Chinese traditional culture very much and I enjoy spreading it all over the world. If you want to learn Chinese happily, please don't hesitate to contact me!

Chinese (mandarin) lessons for adults and kids of all levels
I have been giving chinese lessons for more than 10 years. Before that, I was a radio broadcaster and a journalist in China, hence I have a perfect pronunciation of the official mandarin, without any accent. It provides my students the best conditions to learn chinese, as the tone you give to words when you speak chinese as a foreigner is of great importance if you want to be understood by natives. I have a strong working experience helping students preparing their HSK exam, I also often teach diplomats, to help them acquire the necessary skills and understand properly the vocabulary specific to their job. I also love to work with kids, as I was a mandarin teacher for 2 years in an international school in Singapore. I give them a playful learning environment and use fun learning methods, so even the youngest can stay focused!
