Click the Chinese language 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 the 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)
-Learn Chinese with me (for schoolchildren and teenagers)
-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! )

**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 have been 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!

Extra information

The Chinese language is actually very simple, but unlike European languages, many Westerners and non-native speakers find it difficult to learn.
What distinguishes this class from other Chinese language courses or tutorials is that it exactly teaches you how to pronounce the characters and words at ease and with confidence, to conjugate verbs and to make your own sentences - in a way that is, hopefully, fast and easy to understand!

I had a great experience with Yu. Lesson was extremely helpful and engaging!
Yu was very patient with my 6 yr old, and found some interactive ways to teach her. We will have more lessons!
Yu is very patient and comes prepared. I enjoy that she is very focused and does not get distracted easily. This does not mean that she is too serious, she keeps it light but always brings the attention back to the class. Also, she takes her time to explain words and sentences in their appropriate context. So instead of simply teaching you the meaning, she explains why it is said/structured in a certain way. Very much enjoy her style.
Today I had a great lesson with Yu Gu! She was well prepared and I can recommend her to everybody. Thx!
Yu is a pleasant teacher who gives good feedback. I'm an absolute beginner, but even though we had to start from scratch, the lesson was useful and enjoyable.

Learn Chinese language and culture (all levels)
"It's Chinese"!? Maybe, but he is very mysterious and logical. With me, you will learn how this logic works, and you will also discover, the beauty of its originality. I have been giving private lessons since 2010 and my students are of all ages. (they are adolescents, adults, or even retired) My classes are written and spoken, and I hope to be able to talk to you in Chinese. The goal is of course to be able to speak it. I base my texts on dialogues, stories, great moments of China, but also poems, songs, culture, etc. I personalize all my documents, so the level adapts to the interest of all. I have also created a "WhatsApp" group to make day-to-day learning easier, as it is important to keep it entertaining. I am really passionate about my work, and will be happy to teach you my native language. In addition, I also teach Chinese meditation (Jinggong, which refers to qigong achieved through self-control of awareness and breathing without moving the body.).

Taiwanese Mandarin Classes : dealing with the problems you encountered in real daily life with Chinese in Taiwan
My teaching style is to let learners choose the topics they want, whether it's about their interests, asking questions, or to focus on the issues they encountered in their daily life with Chinese in Taiwan. I also make customize materials for them so that they can review or preview even they are not in class. I like to let my learners be the person who chooses the topic for our class since I thought that's more helpful for learning a language - learn the things you want (but not the offensive topics) or learn the things for solving the problem you encountered with Chinese. I also let my students be able to read tickets from banks, to understand what natives said in text, to practice what to say when get to glasses stores, even learned things about eyelashes in Chinese .etc by learners' need. I offer classes whether for listening, speaking, reading and writing. For the Chinese conversation in my class, we can role-play and you can try to speak more and more as you can. Don't be afraid to say something wrong. I invite you to make more and more mistakes when you use this language in my class. If you make more mistakes, you can learn more from them and be more impressive. I would help you so no worries! Just have fun together and improve together.
