    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.

I will assign some homework after every lesson and keep practicing with the students to make sure they remember. My class is fun and chill, I'm not that kind of strict teacher speaking with a strong tongue and I want you to learn the language skills while fully enjoying the time together. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or advanced learner, I will customize the lessons accordingly to your needs.

    Chinese lessons for everybody - first speaking than reading!
    I think that the most important part of learning Chinese is actual speaking. Of course, reading, writing and grammar it’s also interesting part of this language, but the Chinese characters won’t save you in the conversation, especially with a wrong pronunciation. The lesson is just about you though and it will depend only on you which part of the language learning will be emphasized and which will stay in th background. And I will do my best to make learning exciting and enriching.

    Vietnamese tuition for all levels in Brussels (at home or at the student) / Vietnamese class for all levels After 7 years of experience in Vietnamese private lessons, I now give evening classes in my native language at a school in Brussels.

    Mandarin Chinese and English Tutoring to Expats in Brussels
    I have studied Chinese since the age of 11, and lived for two years in China. There I studied intensive Mandarin Chinese courses at Chinese Universities in Beijing and Wuhan. Therefore, I am well aware of the struggles of learning Chinese. Not only am I now fluent in Chinese (HSK level 5), but I have also learnt how to most effectively learn Mandarin. I will make an individual plan with the student, teach pinyin, pronunciation, tones, characters, phrases, grammar, idioms, everyday language and much more. I will also share my best tips when studying Mandarin. I have extensive experience in teaching English to Chinese children ages 5-17. I was both a private tutor and teacher at local Chinese high schools when living in China. Therefore, I can assist in teaching English to expats living in Brussels
