Chinese/ Chinois (Mandarin) Spoken Course for All Levels

你好! I am Lena. I hold a bachelor's degree of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language, and I did my Master degree in Social Science in the UK. I am now currently doing an internship in Switzerland. My experience working and studying in different continents enabled me to understand different languages, and spread Chinese culture and language among my international friends.

Chinese is a charming language with substantial historic and cultural contexts. If you feel like learning Mandarin, practice to get emotionally and situationally involved in the language is one of the most effective approach. In this way, you’ll remember things a lot better if you feel it when you learn it. This isn’t only my experience.

In the courses, I will be able to provide suggestions for suitable learning materials, and help you to find a approach that suits you to improve your spoken Chinese. The content of the course will be designed based on your practical use and interest, and I will combine the most interesting and trendy issues with the topics to enable an enjoyable learning experience.The course could be delivered both online of offline (If you are currently in Geneva).

Besides the mentioned above, I am very keen on discussing about the food, history, tourist attractions, and other cool stuffs in China, as well as my own interesting experiences in different countries. I also have knowledge and experience of Chinese Calligraphy, and it could be introduced and practiced in the courses too.

If you are interested, feel free to ask a question or send me a message. Let's break down learning Mandarin while making new friends!

About Me

I am Lena, a Chinese girl now doing an internship in Geneva. I love cooking, travelling, and doing yoga.I have experience travel, study, and work in many countries in different continents. I have been using my knowledge of Chinese language and culture to make more people understand and learn about China. I believe the relaxed conversation is an excellent way to learn a language, to make the learner emotionally involved in the language. This has not only been proved in psychology studies, but also has been my own experience learning French living in a local family. I hope to be not only a teacher, but also language partners, friends with you. I am always keen on learning more about people from different backgrounds and with different interests. If you would like to get more idea about learning Chinese, please feel free to get in touch with me!

Experience / Qualifications

Chinese Lessons for Beginner Learners - 1 Hour Classes
Hi there! I'm from Singapore, and I'm proficient in both English and Mandarin Chinese. The former is my native language, and the latter, my Mother Tongue. I've done my academic studies in both languages, and lived in Singapore - a country where both languages are used everywhere, most of my life. The lessons would follow a 4 week plan, where the aim is for students to achieve an elementary level of speaking in Mandarin Chinese, as well as a basic level of written Mandarin (simplified version). You'll be learning useful words and phrases tweaked to fit your interests / daily activities.
