About BenedictI'm studying English Language and Literature in Hong Kong Baptist University.
I'm very glad to make friends with you, because I'm here not merely for profit but for friendship.
I can help you with your Chinese, Cantonese, English or basic French. I have many students off-line, even including my teachers.
Before you take my class, I invite you to think about the following question: What is the best method of learning a new language?
Here is my answer:
For romantic languages like French, Italian or even Latin, I advocate NATURAL METHOD. This means that one must steep him/herself in that language. With a little instruction, he/she will master the language step by step.
For eastern languages like Chinese, Japanese or Sanskrit, I advocate GRAMMATICAL METHOD. This means that the teacher will emphasize grammatical rules.
However, Confucius once said: "Teach students in accordance of their aptitude." After one or two classes with you, I will apply the best method to your language study.
Both new approach and Chinese traditional approach will be used appropriately in our calss. Chinese traditional appoach means that reading and writing along with the grammar will be put at the first place, which is good for students to build the footstone of a new language.
In our class:
1. We will study a new lesson first;
2. I will introduce many interesting things about native culture, like arts or literature;
3. I would put READING (Literature) in an very important position sometimes.
4. Don't worry if you have to drop my class halfway, I would offer you useful information for your future study.
