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...

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,
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.

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!

Ruijiao
Mandarin Chinese (all levels, all ages, all purposes)
I have a Chinese teaching degree and for years I have been teaching students from all over the world the beautiful Chinese language, mostly only through Skype or other chatting programs. My students have been beginners up till people wanting to perfect their Mandarin. Some students only want to learn to talk a bit for a holiday, others want to be able to read and write. I enjoy making for each student a personal studying plan that fits their needs, and also the teaching material I will choose for each student individually. My youngest student started when he was 4, but I have also students who picked it up after retirement. The way I see it is that as long as you enjoy yourself, you are never too young or old to learn anything.

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.

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!
