Pronunciation is the very first step to start to speak a language, and it's inseparable from listening. Then from word, we build phrases, then conversations by differents topics that are useful in daily life. Through the personal tips/videos/songs/ interactive game or language missions, I'll guide you how to practice effectively and gains.

Christina Yen-Chun,
Mandarin Chinese, 9 years of experience, Daily Chinese, patient
Chinese is both deep and interesting. Its grammar is simple, but the reading and writing are full of "surprises". I am Taiwanese and very happy to share and teach my native language. I live in Delémont, Switzerland. In Taiwan, I taught Chinese to foreigners; i have been in international business for almost 20 years and have been exposed to cultures from over 50 different countries. Everyone is always full of freshness and curiosity for Chinese ... Now I will share with you the pleasure and the harvest of learning Chinese. My course is mainly oral, and at the end I hope to be able to speak to you in Chinese. The goal is obviously to be able to express oneself. I personalize all my documents so that the level corresponds to everyone's interests. My students are regardless of their age. (They are teenagers, adults and even retirees) I also created a "WhatsApp" group to promote learning on a daily basis because it is important to continue having fun. I am really passionate about my job and would love to teach you my native language.

Ella
Biology GCSE Tutoring Online with Ella, Flexible Hours
GCSE Biology Tutoring! :) Hi I'm Ella, I recently graduated secondary school with an A in Biology at A-Level and I 9 at GCSE and am about to start a Bio-Veterinary science degree. I love science and would be a patient and passionate tutor. Classes with me would be fun, engaging and overall beneficial as I aim to have memorable sessions to help you learn. Here is my basic lesson plan; To begin with, we would go over the chosen topic together, I would use slides to make it easy for you to make notes. Secondly we would discuss what was just learnt and turn it into a colourful diagram or drawing. This method of visualising concepts is more engaging helps you to understand and retain information. Finally we would do a series of exam questions in order to check understanding and to practice recall and exam style answers. You choose which topics to cover as you know where you need help. All notes, practice questions and diagrams are for you to keep to refer back to later. This lesson style will not only help with the content but will also teach you ways to study efficiently on you own, setting you up for the future. As a student, I understand the pressure of exams and how overwhelming they can be, I would like to help you feel confident and ready to answer any question that comes up!

Xingying
Learn Chinese from A1 to C2, from having fun to prepare test
I run private lessons, where all levels are welcome. But if you’re a total beginner then I offer basic classes to help you find the way to get into it. I develop diverse methods of teaching for the students. For the around 5-8 years old kids, I would like to set certain games to play with them, thereby the kids can learn the new language during the interaction and communication. In this way, different media, like color pictures, puppets, or storybooks are essential to make the course very attractive. For the teenager or advanced students, a structuralized teaching content based on scenarios or textbook could help the students to develop their language capacity efficiently in different aspects – listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Besides, I would like to give a deeper perspective for the Chinese- not only learning the language from the textbooks, but also the knowledge of the language, the culture, and the literature. Also, based on your need and situation, we choose different textbooks and make a personal teaching plan for you.
