Hi! I'm Roy, I grew up in China. Learning and teaching languages is my biggest passion, it's totally changed my life so now I want to help others learn too! I'm currently studying languages and linguistics, and I've been learning English for almost 20 years, which has helped me learn how to explain the language well to other English speakers, and to better understand my own native language.
I think learning a new language should be fun and most of all funny, so I teach primarily through conversations about what you’re interested in and want to talk about. I won’t use any grammatical technical terms, unless you want me to of course, but I usually teach through relevant example sentences: expressions, jokes, stories, and questions. I focus on teaching you to understand and communicate naturally with native speakers, so I'll help to explain the slang and other expressions that you don't learn in school.
I also think it’s really important to focus on pronunciation, so I’ll give you a lot of tips to help you improve your accent. I personally learn languages through music, so I’m happy to help you understand and learn songs in English or Chinese.
I know learning a nw language can be very scary, so I try to make my classes fun, relaxing while at the same time effective. I personalise my lessons based on the students targets and needs.
Below are the types of classes I currently offer:
- Pinyin course
- Chinese listening and speaking class for beginners
- HSK tutoring
- Comprehensive course for beginners to advance (for learning grammar, reading, listening and speaking)
- Intense 30-day course (from 0 Chinese to basic fluency)
I’m really looking forward to meeting you and helping you learn!
