About me

I'm Sarah, 29 years old. I come from Shenzhen,China. It's a coastal city in the south of China, close to Hong Kong. I'm now in Oregon, USA. My native language is Chinese mandarin, and I can speak very fluent English. English is my second language and language for work.

I have a bachelor's degree, majored in English teaching. I had three years full-time teaching experience. I've also gained very good experience of teaching Chinese when some of my foreign friends turned to me for learning the language.

Since Chinese characters are logograms, the pronunciation and writing are very unique. Learning Chinese is indeed difficult, but there are rules to follow, just as learning any other languages. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced learner, I can help.

Let's go step by step, and make it easy and fun learning Chinese.

Here we go!

About me

大家好!

我是小马老师。

我来自中国大陆,居住在中国南部的海岸城市——深圳,现在美国俄勒冈州。

我的母语是中文,工作语言是英文。

我的大学专业是师范教育,有3年的全职教师经验。

因为身边有很多喜欢中文的外国朋友,我因此也积累了一些教中文的经验。

由于中文是象形文字,有别与英语、法语等语言体系,所以发音和语言规律都非常独特。

学习中文确实比较难,但是也有其规律。

除了中文和英文,我也在学习法语和其他语言,

在学习过程中我会去对比和总结不同语言的规律,这也让我能体会到外国朋友学习中文时的困难,从而更有针对性地教学。

不论您是零基础的初学者还是中高级学习者,相信我都能够帮助到您的中文学习。

希望通过这个平台能够认识到更多想要学习中文、喜欢中国文化的朋友们。

Qualifications & Experience

大学是师范专业,受过系统而且专业的语言教学训练;

有全职语言教学的经验;

英文流利(有中国英语专业最高等级证书——EMT 8级);

Teaching Approach

根据学生的语言水平指导教学,给予初级、中级到高级各个水平的学习者有针对性的教学内容。

根据学生的学习目的制定教学内容,例如“日常交流用途”、“商务应用”、“旅行用语”等等。

夯实基础,有了一定基础后,结合一些语言规律,让学生能够有自主学习的能力。

学习中文时,常见的问题和困难是发音和书写。

关于发音,我建议一定在语言学习初期同时学习“拼音”,也就是中文的音标。有了“拼音”的能力,也就掌握了很重要的自主学习技能。

关于书写,由于中文是象形文字,发挥想象力的同时更多时候是需要记忆的;有了一定的基础文字的积累后,我会教一些文字规律去记忆和理解结构复杂的文字。

我会很有耐心地讲解,频繁地互动,鼓励您多练习,建立学习中文的自信心。

最后,非常感谢您学习中文和了解我们的文化!期待和您交流,帮助您学中文。欢迎你们来到中国,品尝我们的美食和更多的中国人交流!
