Exploring China: Language, History, Culture & Politics

How to make the place where you live in China now feel more like home?

The answer is to be both linguistically and culturally closer to the Chinese people!

This course will offer you an immersing experience in Chinese language and culture, history, and even politics. Seperated into three different sections, the class material includes Mandarin tutoring and cultural practices in China, Chinese history, and an introduction to Chinese political system.

Mandarin tutoring and Chinese culture (English and Chinese): Jump into the mandarin-speaking world with native speakers. You will learn about the inner workings of the "unfathomable" characters and the correct use of slangs and daily phrases. You will also attend special activity classes after every three normal lectures, in which you will be brought to a down-to-earth Chinese cultural experience: the best restaurant in town, the most trendy make-up workshop, or even a conversation with a Chinese grandma in the morning market!

Chinese history (Mainly lectured in English. Technical terms are in Chinese): As the sole survivor of the four ancient civilizations, China has a splendid story to offer. The deceased dynasties, the epic wars, the revolutionary inventions, the great philosophies... You will explore the past of China chapter by chapter, diving into the love and hate hidden behind the ashes. However, our course is not limited to the past, but also makes connections with the contemporary events and issues. What happened in the past promotes what is happening now.

Chinese politics (Mainly lectured in English. Technical terms are in Chinese): It is not as forbidden as it seems. Aren't you curious about the voting system? What are the autonomous regions, special regions, and their specialized policies and their relationships with the central government? What are the major policies the Chinese government is adopting at the moment?... Don't let those questions remain mysterious. We combine accurate information from the Chinese politics textbooks and latest news from the Western media to show you an unbiased full picture of the politics in China. Start understanding the Communist party from now.

Extra information

There is no age limitation for the course. The only thing that you are expected to have is the interest in the content mentioned above and an open mind for political discussions.

About Me

你好! Hello! Bonjour! Hola!

This is Carol. I was born and raised in Inner Mongolia, but I moved to Shanghai at the age of 15 to start studying in an international high school on a full scholarship which I am still continuing now.

Do not underestimate the power of the young generation. I am fluent in Mandarin and English, and at the level of B1 for French and A2 for Spanish. I have so far backpacked to 13 different countries around the world all by myself. The special experience facilitates me to look at the situation in China and many global issues from a unique perspective.
I have always been one of the top students in school. I am particularly interested in history, culture and language. Starting this tutoring was my own idea, but I invited many of my peers, who are young talented and enthusiastic about the same topics, to join the teaching team with me.

The future belongs to the youth, thus it's very important to see the mindset of the young generation. Aiming to be members of the global leaders, we are trying to stand out from the traditional Chinese students and embrace the global community as a whole. One of us has already launched a teaching program in Shanghai for primary school students; now we wish to spread the educational ideas and promote Chinese language, culture and history to the world.

Education

Graducated from a traditional Chinese middle school in Hohhot city, Inner Mongolia

I am now attending WLSA Fudan Academy, one of the best international high schools in Shanghai/China

Average GPA for the past school years: 4.0

Experience / Qualifications

I have volunteered in teaching English in a local primary school in Shanghai and an educational organization in Jakarta

I have been an online tutor on the application Enter teaching English

Mandarin Chinese Tutoring - Native Speaker (Beginners -Advanced)
I am a native Mandarin Chinese speaker. Growing up, I've spoken the language in my household, with parents and relatives and I've also took Chinese classes to further improve my understanding of the language throughout college. My class with my unique teaching method is suitable for students of all ages! I'm able to work with adults and children alike in improving their conversational Chinese language. For basic learners, I can help with pronunciations, the Chinese alphabet, and also character writing! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me! I'm more than happy to help and looking forward to hearing back from you!

Yu
Click the Chinese languange 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 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) -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! Definitely I can teach you fast haha) **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 was 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!

Peishan
Chinese turor 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.

The biggest number of popular English language texts comes from the USA and the UK, however, there are many other places where English is spoken as a native language and interesting texts are produced. You can learn with me the following subjects: 1. American literature (including native American literature). 2. British literature (including Welsh and Scottish literature). 3. Selected areas of literature in English from Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.
