SpeaksEnglish, Chinese

Features of My Chinese Teaching: 1. Learning Chinese through Chinese classic literature 2. Understand Chinese philosophy through reading; learn to speak a "literary" Chinese 3. Speak right after your learned it in class! Have you ever felt no time reading? Do you want to learn to speak a more literary Chinese than the other learners? I have been teaching Chinese Mandarin both simplified and traditional to Foreigners for more than two years in London. My student successfully learned to speak a more profound-leveled Chinese embedded with Chinese philosophy, Confucius and Daoism. Let's learn Chinese differently from the perspective of this language background. The background of its history and culture through literature and philosophy studies. It is never difficult to learn a language by understanding its story background! Customized teaching materials from ancient poetry to modern chants, from Confucianism to Daoism, I will help you find a way to learn Chinese! 1) Conversation Practice (Primary level): For those aiming at picking up the language quickly and able to engage in a conversation. The class will be conducted through simulating situations; for example, expressing opinions, asking questions, making a statement...etc. 2) Literature Class (Primary level): For those who have a basis in the language and interested in or wish to improve to a more profound level. The materials range from poems, prose, article excerpts from different times in Chinese history. 3) Conversation Practice (Advanced): For those who have no problems in conversing with native speakers but wish to advance to more structured discussions. In this class, we will have a set topic every time for discussing and putting thoughts into practical speaking. 4) Literature Class (Advanced): For those who have good level in understanding the language and literature but looking for an advanced tutorials. The materials are mainly philosophy class; for example, Confucius, Taoism, Mozi. You will be expected to do 80% speaking practice and 20% reading in Conversation Practice class. Students who wish to improve speaking the language are encouraged to ask questions and lead the direction of the content in class. It is because in this way you will learn it more efficiently and quickly pick up the language well into conversation. For Literature Class, it is mainly for sharing the beauty of learning literature. Literature is to guide and to train the students' critical thinking, independent judgment and attitude toward life.
