    Tailored Chinese courses at all levels, learning while enjoying (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 Chinese/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 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.

    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.
    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.

    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.

    Do you want to speak Chinese with confidence and use the right vocabulary?
    • My mother tongue is Mandarin. • I teach English and Chinese classes to children in 2 private schools. • To teach adults, I would focus on conversation and vocabulary. • I love Asian cuisine, you can cook together by practicing Chinese! • I give priority to spoken language but memorizing vocabulary is a must. • Among DIY activities, songs, cooking, drawing, painting. • I start the lessons with immersion, then I adapt how to learn by student.

    Click the Chinese language and Asian culture on/off-line with the help of an articulate and humorous native!
    Hey, I am Yu. Nice to meet you! This lesson can help you set out to learn how to speak Hanyu, read, and write Zhongwen. For this purpose, you will study the Chinese alphabet (Hanyu Pinyin), characters(Hanzi), vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, and common words and phrases. If you want to learn the Chinese language, you've found the right class! Course materials can be: -Standard Course HSK (for language ability test) -Experiencing Chinese (for immersive classes) -Learn Chinese with me (for schoolchildren and teenagers) -AP Chinese -....... -any tailor-made materials that interest you This course is designed in three versions for different kinds of participants: 1) A Beginner! - Have little or no prior knowledge of the Chinese language; - Want to learn how to make yourself understood in Chinese when traveling, for example, understanding and speaking common everyday words (and sentences) in different typical scenarios ; - Hope to express 1-10 and some larger numbers in China in speech or by gesture decently. *Some examples at this stage: - Hello! Thank you. How are you? - Sorry. / You're welcome! - I can speak Chinese! What's your name? - What's the date today? What's the time now? - I'd like a cup of coffee. Is this seat free? - (and other current Chinese usages in any scenarios you're interested in! Definitely I can teach you fast haha) **Naturally, pronunciation and the four vowel tones are an important part of the lessons, but participants also learn the principles of Chinese writing and gain an understanding of Chinese culture! 2) An Intermediate Learner - Have upper-intermediate knowledge of Chinese; - Need to increasingly enhance our active language skills, to expand your vocabulary, practice reading without Pinyin, and master more advanced grammar and fixed structures to be able to make longer sentences; - Interest yourself in being able to express your views on common everyday topics, like foods, drinks, gifts, weather, Chinese habits, and common practice. 3) An Advanced Learner - Can speak and understand Chinese reasonably well; - Attempt to deepen your understanding of Chinese culture and learn more advanced grammatical constructs to communicate more specific and complex ideas in Chinese, both verbally and in writing; - Focus on topics dealt with leisure and hobbies, hospitality, culture, arts, poetry, history, dynasties and civilization, of modern and ancient China. ***I have lived in China for over twenty years, traveled to many cites (including Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Hongkong, Macau, and so on), and was educated at respected schools and universities. Currently, I am studying Social Sciences in the Netherlands and I am a fan of Chinese literature/Japanese anime/Marvel films, so it's also welcome that you would like to have an informative and interesting talk in Chinese about these topics. +China captures the imagination with its fascinating contrasts. A modern-day global economic entity that proudly upholds ancient traditions. Definitely, a good way to start learning more about China is by taking Chinese!

    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.
