From AustraliaHi, I am Susan. I am totally a new beginner of Chinese and my tutor is Jenny. When I firstly started, I just couldn’t pronounce some Chinese initials such as zh,ch,sh. Jenny was very patient to help me cope with many difficulties, and taught me how to grasp the key points of Chinese. After having repeated many times, now I can make a good chat with my Chinese friends and they think my pronunciation very good. Fantastic!
From GermanyDa jia hao, I have been an English teacher in Changchun for a few of years. I am able to communicate with others with about 2,000 spoken words, but I cannot read. As you know, many places in China are identified in Chinese, so I always felt confused. Now I have been learning Chinese here for three months. My tutor taught me how to read, write, and how to differ the differences from those similar words, now I become much more confident.
From USAI love travelling and I plan to go to China this year. This ancient but new country attracts me to hug, but I have to face language barrier as others do. I have been studying Chinese here for three months. I chose a short-term course (4 months), so my tutor made a special plan for me, combined basic life expressions with repeated practice of vocabulary about travelling. Now I feel much more confident than ever to go everywhere in China.
