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.

Reviews (1)

My departure toward Beijing is gaining terrain and I can freely say that has been very enriching and helpful studying Chinese with Katka. With her I discovered how beautiful and mysterious Chinese is. She shared all her experiences, her meetings, her discoverings and thoughts with me. She gave me a very special and marvelous view about China and its culture. I will never thank her enough for her passion and steadiness. All the exercises she prepared were helpful and definitely a clever way to avoid the possible sorrow due the heaviness of approaching a very different language. Super kind and available indeed! Her suggestions are precious and her teaching is very precise and diversified, complete and flexible. Thank you Katka! And her tea is very very good:) Paolo

Chinese speaking and writing, Chinese culture study(film, music, cuisine, history...)
I've been an international student in KU Leuven for 3 years till now. I'm passionate about linguistics and culture, besides my mother tongue Mandarin Chinese, I can speak fluent English, good Dutch, and some French. So I'm able to teach Chinese to you in English or Dutch according to your preference. What's more, music, museums, films, reading and writing are and have always been my hobbies. I've been playing for 18 years till now, I play classical music and jazz most of the time. I write my own blog as well(in Chinese mostly), where I share my cultural experience in Europe and my poems. Last but certainly not least, I'm a positive and easy-going communicator, a responsible and effective teacher. I can adjust to your study needs, if you don't have any, I can set up study plans for you which suit you the best. I can teach both online or face-to-face, but I prefer the latter. I look forward to meeting you, who is also crazy about cultures and drenched in the beauty of languages.

Do you want to speak Chinese with confidence and use the right vocabulary?
• My mother tongue is Mandarin. • I teach English and Chinese classes to children in 2 private schools. • To teach adults, I would focus on conversation and vocabulary. • I love Asian cuisine, you can cook together by practicing Chinese! • I give priority to spoken language but memorizing vocabulary is a must. • Among DIY activities, songs, cooking, drawing, painting. • I start classes in immersion mode, and after that I adapt the way of learning person by person.

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.

Chinese tutoring for all-leveled learners in person or online
I specialize in tutoring Mandarin Chinese for children, adults, and students. My goals are: 1. to teach you standard Chinese without any strange accents. 2. to give you lots of related and contemporary examples to make you understand the evolution and use of the characters. 3. to compare Chinese and Western cultures to give you a clearer idea of the backgrounds and history of China. 4. to speak Chinese as much as possible ( explain in English, Dutch or French when necessary ). 5. to keep in touch online when you have questions.

Angelique
Traditional or Simplified Chinese Course
Yes, the Chinese language may seem complicated at first glance, but I can help you discover it or make you progress. I propose courses adapted to your desires and needs. You just want to communicate? So, no need to learn writing. If you want to better understand this language then, I will add reading and writing characters. You can choose simplified writing (used in China) or traditional writing (used in Taiwan and Hong Kong). Do not hesitate and let yourself be tempted!

Learn Chinese language and culture (all levels)
"It's Chinese"!? Maybe, but he is very mysterious and logical. With me, you will learn how this logic works, and you will also discover, the beauty of its originality. I give tutoring since 2010 and my students are all ages. (they are teenagers, adults, or retired) My classes are written and spoken, and I hope to be able to talk to you in Chinese. The goal is of course to be able to speak it. I base my texts on dialogues, stories, great moments of China, but also poems, songs, culture, etc. I personalize all my documents, so the level adapts to the interest of all. I have also created a "WhatsApp" group to make day-to-day learning easier, as it is important to keep it entertaining. I am really passionate about my work, and will be happy to teach you my native language.
