Canadian Chinese, teacher of languages (English, French, Mandarin, and basic Spanish and basic Japanese).
English and French and Mandarin from Professional Language Scholar
I am professional language scholar. I taught English in Shenzhen Polytechnic, taught Mandarin in Université Laval (teaching in French), and now teach English and French and Mandarin to individuals in Shenzhen. I master grammars of these languages in extremely strict manner.
For Mandarin learners: I learn by heart over 500 pages of Classic Chinese essays and literature, so I explain the origin and its evolution of each Chinese character and their combination to learners, to help them better understand this language rather than only to help practise simple communication.
What I am looking for:
1. to give Mandarin courses to English/French speakers upon my availability; if you could recommend local students to me (to tutor them English or French in one-to-one basis), it would be highly appreciated.
2. to exchange with native Spanish speakers of Mandarin-Spanish. You don't have to be a language teacher since I got all the grammars from textbooks. What you need to do is to help me to practise my spoken Spanish while I teach you Mandarin. (I have had credits from École de langues de l'Université Laval, and practised now and then in centres de loisirs of the city where I lived.)
3. to get to know basic German. Native German speakers who would like to learn Mandarin are more than welcome to contact me, same way as that I teach you Mandarin and you teach me German.
