Hello, my name is Xinran. I am a native speaker of Mandarin from northern China.
I like to get close to nature , This fills my heart with gratitude and makes me happy to help others. I would like to help you to learn Chinese.
I realize that you have to spend a lot of time, energy and money to learn Chinese. This takes a lot of effort and perseverance.
No one knows their own needs better than themselves. I will encourage you to tell me about your goals and learning styles, and I will adapt our lessons accordingly. I can write any corrections you need in Pinyin and Chinese characters. Before class, you can send me the materials you want to work on in class, or if you are not sure what to study, I can give you some recommendations. For example,I can send you PDFs of textbooks that will be suitable for you.
I appreciate that Chinese and English are very different. For example, Chinese uses specific tones for each word. The tones are very important, and some people find them difficult to master. I completely understand this difficulty and will be patient in helping you to make progress.
I also appreciate that memory can be a big problem in learning a new language. But don't worry! I feel that striving is more important than being perfect. I myself have been learning English since primary school, and it has been more than ten years now. I know very well how hard it is to learn a new language. I will try to see things from your point of view and will be very happy to give you all the time and patience you need.
Together we will be able to help you to communicate fluently with Chinese people in their own language.
