    Xiaolin
    🇨🇳Professional Chinese course for students of all levels and ages- 🔑open the door to the Chinese world for you!
    1. Who am I? My name is Xiaolin(小林) which means little forest. I'm not only a native Chinese speaker but also my major is Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language. I worked as a university lecturer in China and was depatured by the Ministry of Education of China to Europe to teach Chinese in the university. So far, I've been teaching Chinese to foreigners of all ages for around 12 years both at the school or as a tutor. 2. What kind of course do I offer? As Confucius said "因材施教” which means " teaching students in accordance of their aptitude". I'll customize the courses and according to your learning target and your nature. Besides the time spent on the course, I could also answer your questions about Chinese learning or give you some inspiring tips to help you get to know the authentic China. I'm also good at cooking Chinese cuisine. If you're interested in that, I could cook you some real Chinese food or teach you how to cook your favourite Chinese dish:) 3. What about my former students? I still keep in touch with most of my former students. Some work for Chinese companies or Chinese related organizations, some work as interpreters and a student openned an English school in China to teach Chinese kids English. A young boy I started to tutor him when he was 2, now can comunicate with Chinese people spontaneously after 2 years learning. An adult student moved to Shanghai to live with his Chinese girlfriend( they got married last year in Otc.) and another 22 years old boy got to Chengdu to study in Sichuan university majoring in international trade. Too many stories to tell...

    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.

    Peishan
    Chinese tutor 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.

    Learn the Chinese language, do you like it? Let's go!
    Would you like to start learning Chinese? You fall right! I can help you learn the basics of this wonderful language. This language has attracted me since my youngest age, and that's understandable. Who would not be attracted by differences with the French language? The characters, the tones, the absence of conjugation! Everything is intriguing, in Chinese! In this course, you will discover the basics of Chinese, namely: - the most frequent characters, - sentences and basic structures, - the tones (very important!). If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me :)
