My name is Zhijie, I have completed a bachelor's degree in Classical Studies with honors at the ANU and currently studying for a master's degree in General and Applied Linguistics.
I'm a native speaker of Mandarin and Cantonese, a proficient reader of Literal Chinese, and confident in tutoring these languages. I don't have any experience in tutoring Mandarin and Cantonese yet, but I have experience as an intern teacher and experience in tutoring other languages, such as ESL, Latin, Ancient Greek, and Sanskrit for more than 2 years.
Yes, and no. It really depends on what the purpose is and what methods are used. For example, learning vocabulary with morphology would be a more efficient way than learning without morphology; learning Chinese for travel is obviously easy, and reading Chinese literature is difficult.
Again, the purpose is very important. Chinese is a language with diglossia. If you would like to learn the vernacular language, the Chinese community in Canberra is big and there is always a chance to practice with native speakers. If you would like to learn a more formal or literate language, then learning Chinese in Canberra may not be easy.
