    Old scripts, new writing: learning Chinese characters and calligraphy

    Hello! :)

    Originally, I am an art teacher from China and got a Master's degree in Finland. I am inspired by cross-cultural life and learning experience here and focusing on cross-cultural education of art and language.

    Chinese is a language, but also a sign back to the ancient. In my class, I will introduce to you the roots of the Chinese characters and also the art and culture related, for example, the original meaning of the character signs, the basic way of writing, the relationship between the characters and the traditional paper cutting crafts...

    Each class you will get to learn about 20 characters under a theme. You will get inspired by these pictograms created thousands of years ago. Of course, your interests will be the first and most important priority.

    It can be an art and creativity dialogue about text and image, rather than a language class because I believe that language is invented for emotion, expression, and communication! Hope to see you!

    Extra information

    The materials will be charged additionally if needed, for example, the paper, brush, ink...

    I'm a native Chinese who has a profound understanding of English. I'm very sociable and I like to help people practice their Chinese. We can talk about music, videos, history, ... anything!

We practice all kinds of Chinese vocabulary such as daily routine talk, all kinds of subjects, business vocabulary, ... 认识你很高兴! Kind regards, Emily

    Mandarin/Chinese class with shadowing practice in Taoyuan
    For the Chinese conversation in my class, we would role-play and you can try to speak more and more as you can. Don't be afraid to say something wrong. I invite you to make more and more mistakes when you use this language in my class. If you make more mistakes, you can learn more from them and be more impressive. I would help you so no worries! Just have fun together :)

    British and American Culture and Literature, Minority Literatures
    Literature in English language is a very broad term. The biggest number of popular English language texts comes from the USA and the UK, however, there are many other places where English is spoken as a native language and interesting texts are produced. You can learn with me the following subjects: 1. American literature (including native American literature). 2. British literature (including Welsh and Scottish literature). 3. Selected areas of literature in English from Canada, Australia, India and South Africa.

    Peishan
    Chinese turor for Chinese/ Mandarin (simplified and traditional )
    Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.

    Mandarin Chinese classes for children / adults / business(native speaker)
    Dear friends, 亲爱的朋友你们好! If you want to learn a new language especially you don't have much time to feel that in the country, then you will have another option - talk to the native speaker online maybe it's a great way for you keep the natural language environment. and that's how I do before and it works very well. I gave Mandarine Chinese to some teenagers from the states and right now I am in Canada to teach the kids Chinese(they just begin from scratch). I worked for the exhibition company as a project director when I was in China and yes I know how to develop and make business from home and abroad. I have travelled to many countries and I like to share my story/experience and culture to different ones that they like and would like to know the oriental culture. I specialise in tutoring project, project management, business communications, clear business goal, social media. No matter you are a student or college or business requirement, just contact me and I will offer Chinese courses to you.

    Mandarin Chinese (all levels, all ages, all purposes)
    I have a Chinese teaching degree and for years I have been teaching students from all over the world the beautiful Chinese language, mostly only through Skype or other chatting programs. My students have been beginners up till people wanting to perfect their Mandarin. Some students only want to learn to talk a bit for a holiday, others want to be able to read and write. I enjoy making for each student a personal studying plan that fits their needs, and also the teaching material I will choose for each student individually. My youngest student started when he was 4, but I have also students who picked it up after retirement. The way I see it is that as long as you enjoy yourself, you are never too young or old to learn anything.

    Claudia
    Learn Italian with a real Italian (also for beginners)
    I am an Italian native speaker with a background in design. Usually, I tend to use a non-academic approach, by focusing on the student's interests and make him/her applying the language to their everyday life, instead of simply learning the grammar rules by heart. In my opinion, learning a new language should be fun and easy, nothing too stressful. What you will get from is a new positive and funny way to learn a foreign language such as Italian or English.
