Passionate bilingual speech pathologist with 7 year Mandarin second language teaching experience, gives lessons (beginning to advanced level) to those interested in learning Mandarin.

Methodology

I decide how to teach based on how my students want to and are best able to learn, as well as what they want to learn. I always try to make the lessons fun and practical. My lessons will be theme/topic based. Vocabulary will be learned through context, grammar will be taught through practice. Chinese characters will not be learned through memorising strokes, but through understanding how each character is created and developed. Of course practice is required if you are interested in learning how to write the characters. Chinese cultures will be incorporated into language teaching. I will try to get students immersed in Mandarin speaking environment if it is possible. Watching videos, role play, games and drilling practices will be included in lessons.

Background

I am a native Mandarin speaker currently working as a speech pathologist in South Australia. I am always passionate about teaching Mandarin and I have 7 years of Mandarin teaching (to both first and second language learners) experience in China. I would love to help those who are passionate in learning Mandarin language, from beginning to advanced learners. .
