Hey guys! 你们好I am Niki:)我叫Niki。 I come from Shanghai,China.我来自中国上海。 I spent 4 years learning Teaching Chinese as foreign language. In year 2014, I came to work as a professor in Croatia directly after my graduation from university. I speak perfect English and am learning a bit of Croatian now. I love learning language and teaching as well. My job is the best because, well first of all,I really enjoy being a teacher in Chinese language, and also because that I have 16 school hours per week, this way it leaves me a lot of vacancy for most of the time. That is why I came to verbling.com to share my experience and let more people experience the beauty of Chinese language.
Why did I become a teacher on verbling.com:
I firmly believe that the motivation for learning anything new is FUN, this way of teaching is more up dated in the age of technology, since my classes are all old-school with whiteboard and marker pens. I designed a website with the Dean of my institute and did some experimental class with my Croatian students and turned out that they love it! From then, I found more and more enthusiasm in them because this platform makes everything easier. So in my class there is always games and tons of speaking practice。 But do bear in mind that Chinese is unique because of the beautiful characters, which we call them "汉字". So writing is another magic we are talking about. I have got tons of exercises designed by myself according to my different groups of students. It helps and improves a lot. I would love to share my knowledge and to progress together!
