Hi everyone! My name is Cathy, and I am from Jiangxi Province in China, but now I live and work in Zhejiang Province near Shanghai. I have big dreams about living abroad in the future, probably just like you!
I believe oral practice is the main point of learning ANY language. Growing up, you didn't focus on grammar, pronunciation or vocabulary building. You heard the language, and you used it. That's called the Natural Acquisition Cycle, and that's how I choose to teach. So, my main focus is on general conversation and using what you have learned.
I've helped foreigners practice Chinese for two years, and they've made a lot of progress! Learning a language is better when you keep it relaxed.
I offer affordable, oral Mandarin practice for those of you who are looking to just practice speaking the language without spending a lot of money. Since I started learning English, the biggest problem for me was finding someone who could practice with me. I could study vocabulary and grammar all day by myself, but then not be able to use it because I wasn't speaking out! So that's what I want to do for you too.
Come practice Mandarin with me, and use what you've learned. We can talk about China and Chinese culture, and you can take a step towards your China dream.
