Chinese lessons (online or in real life) with native Chinese speaker (Madarin or Cantonese) from Hong Kong
Chinese is a complex language but don't let that stop you from learning it. My lessons will focus on communication and pronoucniation as I believe they will give students the confidence they need to pursue learning any language. I will use pinyin as a method of teaching native pronounciation. There will be writing templates prepared to help with correct writing. I am flexible to offer any help with the language depending on the student's familiarity of the language. Unfortunately I do not speak Dutch, but I do speak fluent English so I will be able to translate from Chinese to English for better understanding.

Basic Chinese conversation AND 1V1 accompany YOU in training
Brief:( I am living UK , so we have the SAME time zone) The most important thing in learning a new language is patience, especially when learning a slightly more difficult language such as Chinese, French or Spanish, and we just need to find the right way to do it. In my courses, I offer three different approaches to choose from, as the ancient Chinese Confucius said: teach according to your ability. Include: Pin Yin, common sense, Frequently Used Words, Chinese culture, introduce the country,like, which city is the nice place to travel, popular applications, and so on.

Learning Chinese through poetry (Entry level to advanced level)
If you would like to know more about the culture, learning through its literature is the best way. I'll teach the formation of words/characters, the usage and the logic behind their formation through a carefully selected group of poems ranging from contemporary poetry to classic poetry. It doesn't require prior knowledge, as long as you enjoys a little contemplative journeys through words and cultures.

Learn Traditional Mandarin Chinese with a Taiwanese
Learn how to understand and speak Chinese as well as read and write the traditional characters with a Taiwanese native. Start from the basics of Bopomofo/Zhuyin so you can pronounce correctly and type in the virtual world. Learning Chinese is only possible through hard work, therefore there will be lots of homework especially in writing which will be corrected. Live classes are intended for hearing and speaking skills.

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.

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.
