Hi, I'm Jing, I'm currently living in Shenzhen, China. I used to work as a Chinese-English translator in Cyprus for 2 years, and did a 1 year volunteer work in the UK. I have a postgraduate diploma in specialized translation at KU Leuven in Belgium. The experiences I gained from living and working abroad give me advantage in helping you with Chinese as I understand the difficulties in between learning and utilize another language. Besides, I'm rather calm and openminded, we can discuss various topics together.
Me as a Teacher
As a native speaker (Level 1 Grade B of Mandarin Level Test), I will be able to help with your pronunciation and grammar through conversations. In my opinion, the best way to master a language is to use it.
My lessons & teaching style
Chinese, in my point of view, is rather simple in terms of grammar (compare to most European languages) yet difficult in mastering the characters. Thus I personally believe speaking could be relatively easier to achieve. My classes focus on speaking. Most of the time we will do conversations, I can prepare the topics and you are also welcomed to send me any subjects you are interested in before the class so I could adapt to your needs. If you are interested in Chinese characters, I can provide an introduction for you to have a basic idea about it.
