Helen is an excellent teacher for learning Mandarin Chinese. She has been teaching our 13 year old child since September 2021 on a weekly basis and has continuously managed to keep her attention. She teaches in a very didactic and structured way and we always get a 'lessons learned' and 'homework' for the next course. We highly recommend her.
Very easy to understand. Very patient. Thank you!
I have been taken Chinese classes from Helen since June 2021. From my first contact with Helen I felt very at ease which also contributes to my lessons with her. I find it important that my courses (which I do besides my full time job) fit in my work/private schedule, and Helen has shown immense flexibility on her side, which helped me a lot. After 3 months, we have gone through almost the entire first part of the Course. Helen has adjusted her lessons to my personal needs after the first couple lessons which helps me to stay focussed every single lesson. What I also find very important personally, is that I also have fun during my lectures. I can say with much excitement that not one of my classes has been boring, repetitive or predictable. This keeps me as the student motivated to log on every week and do my homework. After 1.5 month taking Chinese courses from Helen, I travelled to China and it proved her lessons were very effective. I was able to communicate on a general level and have basic understanding from others to get myself travelling through the Xiamen, China. Overall 5-star rate for Helen, based on my fun experience during the online courses, her flexibility and the amazing results after 3 months already.
Goede leraares

Zhou
Chinese Language and Culture-Listening, Speaking, Writing and Reading
Hi, 你好! I am Zhou, graduated cum laude at a first-rate Chinese university in Journalism and Communication, currently pursuing postgraduate studies at the Univerisity of Amsterdam. As a humanities grad student and a Chinese native, I am well equipped with the sophisticated vocabularies and critical thinking required to present the cultural nuances in the Chinese language. I already have over 400 hours of tutoring experience here in Amsterdam for dutch learners ranging from beginners to advanced. Amazing improvements have been witnessed:) From pronunciation to conversation making, from listening ability to in-depth cultural understanding, you name it. Unlike most institutions, I work no only with standard textbooks but also with thoughtfully curated contemporary Chinese content. So absolutely no need hesitating to contact me XD. Look forward to embarking on the learning journey with you! Best, Zhou

Private Chinese/ Vietnamese teacher in Hanoi/ Online (to French/English/Vietnamese speakers)
As you studied your mother tone, learning Chinese also start from listening, copy, speak, read and write. Pronunciation is the very first step to start to speak a language, and it's inseparable from listening. Then from word, we build phrases, then conversations by differents topics that are useful in daily life. Through the personal tips/videos/songs/ interactive game or language missions, I'll guide you how to practice effectively and gains.

Christina Yen-Chun,
Mandarin Chinese, 9 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient
Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.

Bailing
Mandarin Chinese; Traditional Mongolian language and script and Cyrillic script
I am a doctoral student majoring Chinese language and literature. I speak Mandarin Chinese and Mongolian. My goal is to keep student intrested in learning languages and cultures and showed the diversities in China. The focus of each class is to learn vocabulary, grammar and practice listening and speaking based on different topics with different culture tips.

Shohnura
English and Chinese courses for beginner and elementary students
In my online classes your child learns the language informally and with all the senses, through games, singing, movement, painting and above all fun. The emphasis is placed on understanding the language and speaking freely. The vocabulary is slowly but steadily increased with many age-appropriate teaching materials and games so that the children are soon able to hold simple conversations in English and understand short stories. Children learn basic grammar intuitively and it is consolidated with special games and exercises. Reading, writing and grammar rules are added according to age and level. The first six years of a child’s life are the most important for the development of the human brain. During this period of time all of the important connections between the individual brain cells are created in the brain. The more influences the young child receives the more diversely the brain develops. Studies have proven that learning a second language at this age positively influences development and intelligence. But even after the age of six a second language can still be learned effortlessly and almost without an accent. However the ability to learn effortlessly is irretrievably lost at the beginning of puberty - around the age of 11 years. If the child has already learned a second language at pre-school and primary school age it has a great advantage in later life during lessons at school: the child has already acquired comprehensive knowledge and can prepare for complex learning in a simple and relaxed manner.

Learn Chinese from A1 to C2, from having fun to prepare test
I run private lessons, where all levels are welcome. But if you’re a total beginner then I offer basic classes to help you find the way to get into it. I develop diverse methods of teaching for the students. For the around 5-8 years old kids, I would like to set certain games to play with them, thereby the kids can learn the new language during the interaction and communication. In this way, different media, like color pictures, puppets, or storybooks are essential to make the course very attractive. For the teenager or advanced students, a structuralized teaching content based on scenarios or textbook could help the students to develop their language capacity efficiently in different aspects – listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Besides, I would like to give a deeper perspective for the Chinese- not only learning the language from the textbooks, but also the knowledge of the language, the culture, and the literature. Also, based on your need and situation, we choose different textbooks and make a personal teaching plan for you.
