Greeting from your future tutor, I have experience in teaching Chinese in the UK and back in China. I’m currently based in Amsterdam and it will be easier to teach in the same time zone. I like languages, copywriting and translation in Chinese is my freelance job, I also learn languages so It’s easier for me to understand the pain point of picking up a new language. I can adapt my teaching methodology based on what you prefer. However, it would be great if you also believe the using a language in practice is more useful for learning than textbooks.
Talk to native speakers and immerse yourself with languages no matter with books, podcast, but this also depends on how intense you want your progress be.
It’s difficult to begin with as you need to learn and remember the characters. It will be a lot easier if you only focusing on speaking and hearing.
