    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.

    Click the Chinese languange and Asia culture on/off-line with the help of an articulate and humorous native!
    Hey! I am Yu-GU. 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 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) -AP Chinese -....... -any tailor-made materials 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 travelling for example, understanding and speaking common everyday words (and sentences) in diffrent 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! Definitely I can teach you fast haha) **Naturally, pronunciation and the four vowel tones are and important part of the lessons, but participants also learn the principles of Chinese writing and gain and 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, potery, history, dynasties and civilization, of modern and ancient China. ***I have lived in China for over twenty years, travelled to many cites (including Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Hongkong, Macau and so on), and was educated at respected schools and university. 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! (K-12 Math tutoring class in English/Chinese is offered as well.)

    Chinese course for everyone - all age and all level
    hey guys, I set up this course basically is to help you practice your Chinese by talking, reading or writing. The easy part of Chinese language is that it doesn't have much complicates grammar or tense. However everything else is quite difficult until you have build up a Chinese language system in your mind. We can use any textbook if you want or if you want mainly practice speaking we can pick up a topic each time and talk at the level you are comfortable with. Or if you just want to have help with your report or homework, it's also fine with me.
