I hold Bachelor's Degree in Teaching Chinese as the Second Language from Xi'an International Studies University and a Master's Degree in English-Chinese translation from Beijing Language and Culture University.
I have tutoring experience with foreigners. One student of mine passed HSK 4 with my help within 1 year. I was able to give both online and offline classes and I adjust my teaching style to different age groups of students. We could use many teaching methods to make sure the class is as interesting as possible! such as PPT, word cards, pictures, videos, etc.
The easiest way to learn Chinese is to start with Pinyin, the most useful and fast way to be able to speak Chinese.
One year is enough deal with Chinese daily communications.
