    Tailored English courses at all levels, learning with fun (one on one and group)

    Language is the window to a culture, and at the same time an integral part of a culture.
    The overarching learning goal of my classes is for students to:
    a) master English (speaking, reading, listening, writing) at different levels through various teaching activities which engage, challenge and motivate them at corresponding levels,
    b) experience a different culture and acquire a different (new) perspective of looking at the world through the language they are learning.

    I will provide customized learning materials and handouts, and share various learning resources.

    For beginners, you will learn basic grammars and simple daily expressions.
    For advanced learners, you will learn intermediate grammars with the purse of gaining the competence to conduct daily conversations and read simple articles.

    Born and raised in China and educated as an English major, I'm fluent in both Chinese and English. Through many years of experience in language teaching, I have mastered the skills and found the fun in exploring the beauty of languages and cultures together with students.

    Strictly speaking, this is not a class, but a sharing of culture. My intention is to share some typical dishes and food from Northern China, and thereby provide you a bite of Chinese culture. You can invite friends to participate together, and make the "class" a dumplings party, or food party.
    When you are uncertain about your essay or thesis (for instance the structure, argument or format), the opinion of a reader who is experienced in academic writing will be of great help. The goals of this class are to train your skills in academic writing in the aspects of text structure, logic, coherence, argument and format, and to improve your essays and theses. You will be provided the fundamental knowledge in the above-mentioned aspects, followed up with exercises and feedback. If you have a ready text, I will work on it together with you, sentence by sentence, paragraph by paragraph. In this process, I will ask you questions concerning your text to help you better form your argument, you will be informed of various argument valencies if there is any, and you will receive advice concerning the structure and format of your text. For essays and theses in the field of linguistics and culture studies, I will also provide feedback and advice on analysis.

I will provide customized learning materials and handouts, and share various learning resources. For beginners, you will be introduced basic daily expressions, the pinyin system and basic grammars. For advanced learners, you will learn intermediate grammars with the purse of gaining the competence to conduct daily conversations, read simple articles, type, and write in Chinese.

    I'm available for hourly sessions where we can practice increasing the fluency, comprehension, speaking, or writing level you're at with the English language. I'm open to planning and customizing lessons based on your level of ability, but also your general comfort level. We can also work with the materials you bring if that's something you want to do. But I do want to make sure that you're being challenged (or are challenging yourself) enough or in ways that feel meaningful to you! I'm happy to work with anybody, in any age group, and for any purpose. I'm also a freelance copyeditor, so we can work with texts, essays, speeches, e-mails, forms, etc. I'm very flexible in terms of what we can work on or work with, so just send me a message if you have any particular needs, preferences, or concerns. We'll work something out!

    Conversational English: Conversation Practice and Improvement
    I teach conversational English. The initial purpose of my lessons is to get my students to practice speaking English. "Practice makes perfect", it's true, but during our practice sessions, we will soon discover our weak spots and we will have to address them. The real purpose is not just practice but IMPROVEMENT. So we will dedicate a portion of our sessions together to fixing pronunciation and learning the proper way to use tenses and grammar in everyday speech. We discuss movies, literature, politics, sports, music and anything that two friends might talk about. Role playing, in which we act out situations from everyday life can be a lot of fun. The topics of our conversations largely depend on your interests. By the end of this course, you should be able to speak English fluently and confidently.

    Swedish, Danish and English courses from beginner to business.
    I have worked fulltime, for the past 12 years, as a language teacher and translator. I was born in Sweden, to Danish parents and live with an Englishman. I teach said three languages to both private and commercial clients, placing great emphasis on client needs and abilities. Cultural knowledge is also very important to the understanding of any language and is therefore included in all courses. The dreaded grammar is the fundamental building block to a language, but I try to make it as fun as possible.......as well as the homework and self-study.

    Corinne
    English: Pronunciation (British or American). NO grammar lessons. Adults only.
    I have facilitated workshops and given classes throughout my career all over the world. English pronunciation is essential these days because English is spoken everywhere and all the time. I followed specialized training such as the verb tonal method, Feldenkrais or mental coaching. We are therefore going to work in a slightly different way by combining articulatory techniques, movement, rhythm, intonation, warming up of the jaw and tongue, stretching of the neck, neck and shoulders to arrive to very fast results.
