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!

Chinese (mandarin) lessons for adults and kids of all levels
I have been giving chinese lessons for more than 10 years. Before that, I was a radio broadcaster and a journalist in China, hence I have a perfect pronunciation of the official mandarin, without any accent. It provides my students the best conditions to learn chinese, as the tone you give to words when you speak chinese as a foreigner is of great importance if you want to be understood by natives. I have a strong working experience helping students preparing their HSK exam, I also often teach diplomats, to help them acquire the necessary skills and understand properly the vocabulary specific to their job. I also love to work with kids, as I was a mandarin teacher for 2 years in an international school in Singapore. I give them a playful learning environment and use fun learning methods, so even the youngest can stay focused!

Xue
Excellent Chinese teacher with abundant working experience
I was born in China with love and encouragement from my family and teachers. From an early age, my mom, dad, and brother told me many funny and famous stories and fairy tales about Chinese Culture. All of these beautiful and traditional histories teach me how to love and respect others, how to be brave, and how to persist in my passion. I love my country and its charming, traditional culture. I hope I can convey what I have learned to others someday. And then my dream comes true. Education I am studying at the Geneva Graduate Institute which is a famous university focusing on political research and analysis. Before studying in Geneva, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Social Work in Shandong Normal University(China). Experience 7-year working experience with teaching. Especially, after graduating from the university, I became a 2-year volunteer teacher in a remote village in China. What you can learn through my courses: - Learning with fun. I know it is not easy to study another language. But there are several ways to help you (your children) love to study Chinese, such as Picture Book Teaching, Chinese songs, or intriguing multimedia tools (movies and videos). -Specific teaching method for yourself. My past five-year working experience is to teach teachers how to improve their learning skills. One of the most important methods is to adjust and design the teaching method according to the ability and interest of each student. I will teach you (or your children) to study in an appropriate way through the pre-course testing, assignments, and interaction. -Chinese language and culture. China has a long history of 5,000 years, and there are so many histories, poems, and stories during the long period of time. You( or your children)can learn a lot about Chinese culture and local customs while studying Chinese. -Chinese certification(HSK). I can help you pass your HSK examination with my rich teaching experience. I am studying at the Geneva Graduate Institute now which is a famous university focusing on political research and analysis. It is my first time to study and live abroad. I believe this is a good way for me to learn and communicate with local people(you or your children). If you are interested in my course, please contact me through WhatsAPP(86+15770321645). Happy to see you!
