    Teaching Approach

    First of all, you can choose whether to learn Chinese through English in which way many people feel comfortable, or learn through pure Chinese (sounds challending but really safe and fun)

    Secon dly, a large amount of real, funny, useful learning materials are gathered, recreated or designed, to make the "contexts" more "real". Even if you are not able to take advantage of the communities in Beijing, you won't miss the chances of learning how to communicate in Chinese.

    I know different people have different learning styles, we can have a chat first then we choose the right thing for you.

    Program Description

    The most important point of all is that the process of learning a language should be happy. I hope my students all enjoy themselves in class.

    Tea ching should also be effective. With over 3 years' experience in teaching Chinese to speakers of other languages, I know the easy items and the difficult ones, I know which items are perfect to begin with in the various of contexts and how to build the connections between old lessons and new knowledge. Knowing the differences and similarities between Chinese and English, I teach with special methods and techniques which make it much easier for English speakers to gain and master Chinese language.

    lessons are tailored according to the learning context and the learner's needs/whishes of learning.

    I have taught many different subjects including Chinese writing, reading, Chinese characters, grammar, Conversations , Chinese culture, HSK and CSP (Chinese for special purpose, such as Chinese for business, Chinese for academic purpose).
