I’m Kamil and I’m a language tutor based in China. I can speak 4 languages now including Mandarin Chinese. Learning and teaching languages are my biggest hobbies, but It wasn’t always like this. In my middle school, my English was one of the worst. My English language teacher told my parents, that I just don’t have talent for learning languages and I need to accept it. One year after, my English was best in my class. What happened then? Well, I didn’t spend a single second learning English at home, I just met some English-speaking friends online and I wanted to communicate with them. At first I was using an online translator responding them like: „My doesn’t understind”, but after couple of months I realized that I don’t even need to use translator anymore. This experience taught me, that the best way of learning languages is learning like children; make mistakes, guess how to say something, listen to the others and copy them.
After some time I learned Russian. My learning Russian method was similar; learn the most common Russian words (use flashcards) and then just try to use them talking to Russian people. After Russian I decided to challenge myself and learn – many people say – the hardest language in the world – Chinese. After couple of months learning Chinese I realized, learning Chinese is different from learning European languages, and I - based on many books and scientifically proven learning methods – modified my learning methods especially for Chinese learners. In my courses I use exactly these teaching methods.
Is Chinese really the hardest language in the world? I don’t think so. It’s just different from European languages, so It needs a little different way of learning. Using right methods, you can learn Mandarin fast.
Hi I am Yuanli from Chengdu, China, you can also call me Xiao(my Chinese surname). During college, I spent most of my free time teaching Chinese to foreign students. I also taught English to children in China as a part-time job during summer and winter vacation. Through my experience in teaching, I have formed a unique and effective teaching style.
My English level is TEM (Test for English Majors) level 8. The goal of my teaching is not only to help people learn Chinese in a fun and relaxed way but also to help them communicate and understand each other better without language barriers.
Now as a Online Mandarin Chinese tutor I work with students of all ages, from children to adults. Their level of Chinese fluency might differ. I emphasize the teaching of conversational rather than textbook Chinese. With this method, students learn to have a greater sense of self-confidence and accomplishment in their language mastery.
Looking forward to being your Mandarin teacher!
