Me as a Teacher
as a teacher, I use different techniques and teaching methods. I don't use only one book and or one internet resource, I use different books to give a comprehensive understanding of Chinese language Speaking, listening, reading and writing are essential while learning Chinese. My responsibility is to introduce the characters in visual form, let the student understand from which strokes every character consists, develop listing and writing skills, practicing tones until they start to come naturally. together we will learn Chinese from the very basic structures to advanced. So you will be able to understand and express yourself in Chinese.
