    Chinese language and studies by college-educated native speaker

    I'm a 30-year-old Chinese man currently residing near Schuman Roundabout, 1000 Brussels. I have a valid long-term visa allowing me to work here.

    I'm university-educated in China and have been working since mid-2011 with a top news organization where my job is to write Chinese- and English-language articles. My job actually asks me to understand Chinese politics and economics, both from within the Chinese state but also from outside.

    Therefore I'm offering not only the Chinese language, but also a balanced and reasoned perspective about China.

    I'm well-mannered and patient. I'll admit I haven't taught the Chinese lanuage - Chinese mandarin, spoken by 1.4 billion people in the Chinese mainland - professionally. But I think we will work it out.

    I can also stay online via instant messaging apps to answer your questions from time to time.

    I live in a two-bedroom, one-living room apartment all by myself so it's OK if you want to come to my place. I can also travel by public transport. I'm actually quite flexible - workdays and weekends could all work for me.

    If you are interested, pls drop me an email. I'll write back ASAP.

    Extra information

    You're very welcome to bring your Chinese-language textbooks, homeworks or reading materials.
    Please note I only speak English. I don't speak French or Dutch or German.

    Huong
    Private Chinese/ Vietnamese teacher in Hanoi/ Online (to French/English/Vietnamese speakers)
    As you studied your mother tone, learning Chinese also start from listening, copy, speak, read and write. Pronunciation is the very first step to start to speak a language, and it's inseparable from listening. Then from word, we build phrases, then conversations by differents topics that are useful in daily life. Through the personal tips/videos/songs/ interactive game or language missions, I'll guide you how to practice effectively and gains.

    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.

    Shohnura
    English and Chinese courses for beginner and elementary students
    In my online classes your child learns the language informally and with all the senses, through games, singing, movement, painting and above all fun. The emphasis is placed on understanding the language and speaking freely. The vocabulary is slowly but steadily increased with many age-appropriate teaching materials and games so that the children are soon able to hold simple conversations in English and understand short stories. Children learn basic grammar intuitively and it is consolidated with special games and exercises. Reading, writing and grammar rules are added according to age and level. The first six years of a child’s life are the most important for the development of the human brain. During this period of time all of the important connections between the individual brain cells are created in the brain. The more influences the young child receives the more diversely the brain develops. Studies have proven that learning a second language at this age positively influences development and intelligence. But even after the age of six a second language can still be learned effortlessly and almost without an accent. However the ability to learn effortlessly is irretrievably lost at the beginning of puberty - around the age of 11 years. If the child has already learned a second language at pre-school and primary school age it has a great advantage in later life during lessons at school: the child has already acquired comprehensive knowledge and can prepare for complex learning in a simple and relaxed manner.

    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.
