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

Xingying
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.

Christina Yen-Chun,
Chinese Mandarin, 8 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient, 1 by 1
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.

Yu
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!

Huong
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.

Gwendolyn
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!

Zejia (Luna)
Customized Easy and Fun Chinese class (online/offline)
With the certification in teaching, I have been teaching for almost 5 years and my students come from different countries with different backgrounds and from all walks of life. I have taught kids and adults both online and offline. My teaching style is also customized according to the level and goal of the students. I find ways to be creative all the time so the books and video materials I use in my class are always fun! Learning Chinese is not just about enhancing your vocabulary or your skills, improving your accent, nor perfecting your grammar. Learning a certain language is about bridging gaps and breaking barriers. So in my class, you would expect that you are not only going to learn, but at the same time, you are going to have fun-filled moments during the quality time we are gonna spend together. Making friends is one of my best skills and I easily get along well with people. I believe we will learn something from each other. Couldn't wait to know you :) Just send me a request and I am ready to talk more with you at first!
