Sue English
ENGLISH TEACHER from ENGLAND excellent quality lessons
Hello, are you looking for an English teacher, qualified from the UK? Do you wish to improve your pronunciation, your grammar and get ready for your job/school? The English lessons here are especially designed to meet your needs. Do you wish to have your work corrected, to work on literature/ business subjects/ linguistics or prepare yourself for an exam? Don’t wait and send me a message. The teacher can prepare you as well for specific examinations like IETLS or specific English programs (A-Levels, GCSE…). Why learning English? English is a worldwide language and you will need to have solid basis in English for your job or for leisure when travelling. Did you know? Knowing an extra language is extremely appreciated by recruiters because not only you are familiar with a foreign language but also you will be open-minded, knowing various cultures. 😊 You have the possibility to have the lessons via Skype (the majority of my students prefer having their lessons online, technology is fun!). If you have further inquiries, don’t hesitate to let me know, it will be a pleasure to help you and present you to your teacher.

Sophie
Learn mandarin in a fun way; Chinese, Mandarin tutoring, Chinese teacher, Mandarin teacher
Hello, everyone, This is Teacher Feifei, you could call me Sophie. Many people think Chinese is hard to learn. Pronunciation, Chinese character, grammar, all of them are very hard? So is Chinese really so hard? Pronunciation Mā má mǎ mà, is it one word, or four words. Many people are confused. The most important thing is to listen and speak more when learning a language. Keep listening and imitating the pronunciation of native Chinese speakers, I’m sure the pronunciation will gradually become more and more standard. In my class, for students of intermediate and advanced level, I will adopt an immersive Chinese teaching method, give you as much Chinese input as possible, and encourage you to do Chinese output. This not only exercises your listening skills but also improves your speaking skills. Chinese character people say that Chinese characters are just like pictures, and they don’t know where to start. In fact, there are only 8 basic strokes of Chinese characters, and all Chinese characters are composed of these eight strokes. There are basic rules for writing Chinese characters. As long as you master the rules, Chinese characters are easy to write. In my class, I have a special section to teach how to write Chinese characters. Grammar Some grammars in Chinese do not exist in English, such as bazi sentences and so on. Chinese, like any language in the world, has grammatical rules. In my class, I will show the basic structure of grammar, use simple and practical scenes in life to guide students to make sentences. For Chinese grammar, as long as you master the rules, it is not difficult too. Whether you are a child or an adult, a short-term learner or a long-term learner, preparing for the HSK test or studying business Chinese, you could book lessons with me. I will make a special study plan for you according to your special needs and Chinese level, and adopt different teaching methods. For children learners, I will mainly use interesting cards, animations, or music to stimulate children's interest in learning Chinese. For junior-level adult learners, I will use a combination of Chinese and English to explain and guide learners to imitate and practice Chinese. For intermediate and advanced level learners, I will use immersive Chinese teaching methods, which will provide learners with good listening and speaking opportunities. After class, whether you are a student who has booked my course or a former student of mine if you have any questions about Chinese learning, you can leave a message on the Verbling platform and I will provide a reply in time. If you are interested in learning Chinese with me, please book my course. I will accompany you to improve Chinese proficiency together and look forward to seeing you in my class.
