Learning Chinese through poetry (Entry level to advanced level)

If you would like to know more about the culture, learning through its literature is the best way. I'll teach the formation of words/characters, the usage and the logic behind their formation through a carefully selected group of poems ranging from contemporary poetry to classic poetry. It doesn't require prior knowledge, as long as you enjoys a little contemplative journeys through words and cultures.

Extra information

Bring a notebook is always good.

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 have been giving private lessons since 2010 and my students are of all ages. (they are adolescents, adults, or even 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. In addition, I also teach Chinese meditation (Jinggong, which refers to qigong achieved through self-control of awareness and breathing without moving the body.).

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.

Ibtissam
Learn Chinese culture and language, communication, and learn character writing
Laureate of the Faculty of Letters and Human Sciences, Chinese Studies, at the Confucius Institute. Having the teaching of foreign languages and audiovisual as a part-time job allowed me to gain experience; I know this area well and I am competent to lead a course. By working with comrades of different nationalities (French, Chinese, English, American, African ...) in festivals and seminars I have well developed the competence of cross-cultural communication. My courses are aimed at young and old alike, from those who want to know the basics of Mandarin to those who prepare for competitions or who wish to improve their pronunciation / accent. I can also teach you to write Chinese symbols if you want. Depending on the objectives of each, I undertake to propose an adapted methodology, which can then be discussed in order to be optimized according to the requests. Smiling in life and serious at work. My studies and my stay in China allow me a good command of the Chinese language, a rich knowledge of the didactics of Chinese, as well as a strong communication capacity. In addition, I have a good level of Mandarin Chinese (level 1,2 3 and 4 in the oral and written Mandarin test which is called HSK and HSKK). My academic background in journalism allowed me to perfect my journalistic writing skills which encouraged me to write many articles in Simplified Chinese, as well as I developed my translation skills. Except the language, I will be able to explain Chinese calligraphy and Chinese culture (Chinese history, mythology, Buddhism, Taoism, etc.) to you at the same time. I developed these subjects for 3 years and presented in the university "SKEMA Business School" for one year. Besides the Chinese language course, you can also learn about my Chinese culture topics. It's up to you. In addition, I master 2 Chinese instruments, the bamboo flute (Dizi / 笛子) and Guqin (古琴). If you are interested, I will be happy to give you instructions. I also do martial arts, we can talk about it. I look forward to your message!

Ruijiao
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.
