    About Me

    I have been teaching English in Shanghai Lansheng Fudan Middle School, which is an elite private school (ranked No. 2 in 2016) in Shanghai, since 2014. During my teaching career, I have been seeking improvements and innovations in English language teaching in the school and collaborating with other more experienced teachers and scholars in Shanghai. In 2016, with my district teaching supervisor Victor Lu, I published my first workbook on English reading comprehension for middle school students in Shanghai. I also held multiple public lessons on the district level. My students' improvement of the language study has always been my first goal to achieve in my work and I would like to grasp more opportunities to improve my own knowledge on linguistics study and teaching methodology.
    I am currently doing my master's degree on Linguistics in University of Amsterdam.

    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! 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 some coffe. 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.)

    Traditional or Simplified Chinese Course
    Yes, the Chinese language may seem complicated at first glance, but I can help you discover it or make you progress. I propose courses adapted to your desires and needs. You just want to communicate? So, no need to learn writing. If you want to better understand this language then, I will add reading and writing characters. You can choose simplified writing (used in China) or traditional writing (used in Taiwan and Hong Kong). Do not hesitate and let yourself be tempted!

    Mandarin Chinese and Japanese lessons (all levels, ages)
    I specialise in teaching Chinese and Japanese to students of all ages and abilities. For both of these languages, my pronunciation, grammar and fluency are at a near native level, and my students benefit from my ability to explain concepts in English. I am a creative teacher, however I do not shy away from traditional approaches to teaching, and as a teacher of languages, I particularly enjoy teaching grammar and pronunciation and have developed a thorough approach to each of these, along with all other aspects of language-learning. I have considerable experience devising and implementing my own syllabi (something I also greatly enjoy!) to cater for the diverse needs of my students - particularly younger learners. The exact format for my classes therefore differs from student to student: some prefer to focus solely on speaking and listening; others (schoolchildren for instance) study more writing and translation. A typical syllabus followed could include the following on a weekly or fortnightly basis: pronunciation training; writing practice; focussed work on grammar and grammatical structures; reading exercises; conversational role-play; vocabulary testing; essays on history and culture For more information, please enquire.

    Mandarin and Cantonese for All Levels, with Stories behind this Old Language
    To learn a language efficiently, passion and inspiration is the biggest motivation, no matter you are a child or adult. What's fun about Chinese is that there's a lot of stories behind each word and phrases. I'm a native Chinese speaker, and when I was young I loved to explore the interesting facts behind Chinese when I learn it. I believe it's a pleasure of mine to share about this old language to friends all over the world.
