Frequently Asked Questions

Do any of the teachers on LanguaTalk also offer in-person conversational Chinese classes in Richmond?

While some teachers on LanguaTalk may offer in-person conversational classes in their local area, the majority specialize in online teaching. This approach is more convenient for them, allowing flexibility and the comfort of working from home. Most teachers are not based in Richmond and are spread across the globe, so if you're looking for a class with LanguaTalk, you should anticipate an online learning experience.

What's the best way to find conversational Chinese classes near me in Richmond?

If you prefer in-person learning over online classes, LanguaTalk might not be the best fit for your needs. For local classes, you can search through community boards or local service listing websites. However, we encourage you to explore the convenience and effectiveness of online classes. You can start with a free trial session to experience the benefits first-hand, such as access to a broader range of experienced teachers and potentially lower costs.

How does participating in a Chinese class via video call differ from attending a Chinese class in person in Richmond?

Many students initially have reservations about participating in online Chinese classes, thinking the experience will be vastly different from in-person classes. However, they often discover that online classes can be just as engaging and effective. In an online Chinese class, you’ll interact with your teacher and classmates as if you were all in the same room. The teacher may share resources (like articles or videos) and will collaborate with you in real-time using tools like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper, ensuring an interactive learning environment. The biggest benefit is convenience: there is no need to travel, and you can book lessons for when it suits you.

Are Chinese lessons in Richmond more expensive than learning online?

Whilst not always the case, Chinese classes in Richmond are typically more expensive than online learning options. This is due to the costs associated with using a classroom, as well as travel time and expenses for teachers. Online classes, on the other hand, eliminate these overheads. Additionally, online instructors often live in countries with lower living costs, which can further reduce the price of online classes.

If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial lesson. Many, but not all, tutor offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be reduced to 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at a minimal cost.

Trial lessons are 30 minutes long. They allow you to evaluate whether the tutor is a good fit for you and experience learning online. The tutor will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so they can customize any lessons you decide to take. You will be encouraged to speak in Chinese as much as possible, but you can also speak in English if needed.

If, after your trial lesson, you don't feel that the tutor is right for you, you can schedule a trial lesson with another tutor for 30 percent of their full lesson price.

On LanguaTalk, you can find highly qualified tutors who offer personalized 1-on-1 Chinese lessons based on your goals and learning style. Here's how it works:

1 - Search for a tutor who meets your needs by reviewing videos, ratings, prices, and availability.

2 - Schedule a trial lesson. Many tutors offer a 30-minute trial for free, while others offer a discounted price.

3 - Take your personalized lessons with your chosen tutor via video call. Or, you can try a different tutor if you prefer.

You can pay for each lesson individually or purchase multiple lessons at a discounted rate (view a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).

The advantage of taking lessons online is that you can learn at any time and from any location. When you select a tutor, check their calendar to ensure that they have available slots that fit your schedule. Some tutor may have limited availability due to high demand from other students.

Most students take 55-minute lessons. However, some tutor also offer the option of 30-minute lessons. If this is available, it will be noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).

In general, we recommend 55-minute lessons for most students. You may want to consider 30-minute lessons only if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice, or if the lesson is for a child.

Lessons are conducted one-on-one, allowing you to receive personalized attention from your tutor. lessons are conducted via video call, and you can use any device with a stable internet connection and a webcam to join the lesson.

Your tutor will create a customized lesson plan based on your goals, learning style, and current level. During the lesson, you will have the opportunity to speak, listen, and interact with your tutor in real-time. Your tutor may also provide you with additional materials, such as audio recordings or written exercises, to help you practice and consolidate your learning.
