Hello, I'm Ling, a native Chinese speaker. I can speak both French and English. Now, I'm working as a full-time online teacher on Verbling. I have my own website ( https://bilingoal.com/). My goals are to help you improve your pronunciation, speaking, and also let you get ready for HSK exams ( HSK1-4 ).
Apart from this, I'm also working as a part-time Mandarin speaking tutor at Easy Chinese which is located in Guangzhou, China.
I have experiences teaching both adults and children, especially beginners. I'm patient, responsible and optimist. I love the students who question me a lot during the lessons, and I love your mistakes! IIf you just started this language or want to improve your skills, don't hesitate to contact or to book a trial lesson with me, I will be happy to be your teacher!

▲ Package ▲
*For absolute beginners: Learning Pinyin is the first step to learning Chinese, therefore Pinyin Package ( Chinese Introductory course - Pinyin) is specially designed for you, this package is divided into 10 sessions. In the first session, I am going to introduce you the language and how to learn Pinyin (Chinese phonetic alphabets) efficiently, easily. In each session, we will learn several Chinese alphabets (finals & initials), I take you to do pronunciation practice ( tone changes, sound discrimination etc). In the meantime, you will be asked to master 1 or 2 Chinese characters for each lesson if you'd like to. I can also show you how to write the characters properly (stroke orders, radicals). If necessary, you will be given some homework.
1. 学 vs 学习 (xué / xuéxí)
Both words mean ‘to study’ or ‘to learn’, whereas 学习 can be used both transitively and intransitively, 学 in normally reserved for transitive use.
