Hi, this Kay. I am an experienced Mandarin Chinese teacher. For ten years, I have been teaching different countries students, whose Chinese level ranging from zero, the true beginner level to advanced. The learners’ difficulties in Chinese learning are obvious different from each. Therefore, I incorporate these into the teaching material to help students learning easily.
“Student-centered” is one of my teaching philosophies. The classes will be proceeded differently due to the variety of the student features and objectives. That is, the teaching content and curriculum will be adjusted to take into account the differences of students and learning purposes. Communication is the main purpose in learning language. Therefore, Listening and speaking will be the most important in my class. And, reading takes priority over writing.
Learning a language is painful but it’s fun, and Chinese learning is not easy, either. learning difficulties in Chinese include Tones, character writing and recognition, vocabulary, grammar, etc.. Therefore, maintaining interests, goal-oriented, practical content and a little pressure will maintain your learning motivation. Let us learn with fun!
