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

Hello! My name is Julie and I am 16 years old. I am in secondary school and I offer tutoring classes, homework help and I also teach Dutch and Chinese. Did you know that Chinese is the most spoken language in the world? It's impressive, is not it? I am a very patient and motivated girl. And it's very important to be patient when you learn a language like Chinese. Mandarin is my mother tongue so I speak it perfectly. I mainly give Chinese lessons to children.

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.

Cécile (Yi)
Learn Chinese Culture and Language - Mandarin
Hello, law student and philosophy (master), I offer private lessons Mandarin. Of Shanghainese origin, I offer my services to those who are interested in Chinese language and culture. My goal is to advance the linguistic knowledge of the student without overloading him, and while remaining in a playful atmosphere. In order for the linguistic experience to be enriching and interesting, I integrate, in addition, cultural, literary and social elements in this course. In general, classes consist of four parts: oral, written, audition and cultural understanding. For those who are starting learning, there is also a basic writing part (PIN YIN and basic ideograph study). But, I can also adapt the courses according to the particular requirements of the student (exam, quick knowledge for a business trip, etc.) In general, I propose a weekly work (vocabulary review, reading an excerpt or watching a Chinese movie (for advanced students), etc.) and evaluate the progress of the course once a month so to quickly remedy certain shortcomings. Thank you for wanting to trust me and see you soon!

Waston
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.
