🇨🇳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...

About Me

I'm a positive and interesting soul with lots of hobbies. I like doing sports(pingpong, badminton, volleyball, hiking, cycling, yoga...), reading books( literature, biography, philosophy, psychology,,.), travelling, photographing, cooking, making friends from different cultural background.

I'd like to teach students in the way that could stimulate their enthusiasm for learning to the greatest extent and guide them to study effectively and joyfully. Language learning shouldn't be isolated from daily life, my students would be suggested to use the expressions learnt as often as possible in various ways. Along with the Chinese language teaching, I'll also combine with some Chinese culture, Chinese people's mindset and popular topics about China.

Teaching for me is an interactive journey, I'll always be the reliable guide for you to explore in the Chinese world.

Yu
Click the Chinese languange 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 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 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! Definitely I can teach you fast haha) **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 was 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! (K-12 Math tutoring class in English/Chinese is offered as well.)

Mandarin Chinese classes for children / adults / business(native speaker)
Dear friends, 亲爱的朋友你们好! If you want to learn a new language especially you don't have much time to feel that in the country, then you will have another option - talk to the native speaker online maybe it's a great way for you keep the natural language environment. and that's how I do before and it works very well. I gave Mandarine Chinese to some teenagers from the states and right now I am in Canada to teach the kids Chinese(they just begin from scratch). I worked for the exhibition company as a project director when I was in China and yes I know how to develop and make business from home and abroad. I have travelled to many countries and I like to share my story/experience and culture to different ones that they like and would like to know the oriental culture. I specialise in tutoring project, project management, business communications, clear business goal, social media. No matter you are a student or college or business requirement, just contact me and I will offer Chinese courses to you.

For the Chinese conversation in my class, we would 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 :)

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.
