Lifelong Language Learner! I speak four languages, two fluently and two proficiently. I have lived, worked, and studied in Beijing. On italki I hope to get back to that level of Chinese and continue learning beyond it.
Chinese teachers to especially focus on vocabulary and speaking ability.
I am looking to practice my Chinese language skills. I have taken 5 years of Mandarin in school. In 2013 I studied abroad at Peking University where I was enrolled in a Chinese immersion program. While in Beijing, my Chinese dramatically improved. Since then, I feel I have lost some of it since textbook study is nowhere near as effective as 1-on-1 conversations. italki seems like the perfect way to maintain and advance my skills. I am looking for a language teacher that can help me with my speaking ability. On italki I could also help others with Spanish or English!
