• Going through different conversational topics depending on what YOU want to learn and what we lead to & flow into during each lesson.
• Through the process, I bring up & explain grammar points, vocabulary, sentence patterns for you based on what we talk about.

• Topics can be: day to day conversation, things you want to complain together with your coworkers or things you guys want to discuss about, weekend friend-making ice breaking ideas, things when one goes through different relationship phases, or even deep person thoughts about life topics.
• Topics are not limited from above!

你好！I have a degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language and have lived and worked in China for close to 10 years. I'm also an English teacher, so I definitely know the differences and difficulties of learning these languages!
If you're a complete beginner, I will start off by introducing you to the basic pronunciation and grammar rules. After 2-3 classes, when you get a feel for the language, we'll move on to specific units. I'll help you learn relevant vocab and grammar, and how to express yourself.
If you're more of an intermediate or advanced speaker, you'll love my speaking classes! Each class focuses on a topic or article (news, magazine or blog article) and you'll practice speaking by discussing these topics. These discussions will also help you gain a better understanding of Chinese society and culture.
Of course, classes will be modified according to your needs and wishes. You'll just have to let me know after you book a lesson with me!See Reviews From Students
Hey everyone, I'm Mabel who is a full-time traveler and also a part-time online Chinese tutor.
I've been traveling for 7 years now, I've done tons of different things during my travel, Au pairing in Belgium, the US, and Mexico; Working holiday in New Zealand; Backpacking in Europe and Latin America; Working at a resort in the Maldives; volunteering in South Korea and more.
I'm considering that I'm a patient person, very outgoing and open-minded, and maybe a little bit crazy too(in an adventurous way).
I have 4 years of experience teaching Chinese since my first au pair year in Belgium in 2014. And I'm still giving online Chinese classes to my host kids whom I was taking care of as Au Pair in the US, but there isn't much work and I'm thinking about why not give classes to other people who want to learn Chinese, and this always makes me super proud! Thank you for learning my mother tongue!
I will mainly focus on conversation and also pronunciation, as a traveler and also a language lover, I learn some languages during my traveling. I picked up some French and also Spanish, not much but I totally feel you. So, I think communication is the key to getting to know the people and the culture first, but don't worry we'll go over grammar too, It is all-important.
But of course, the class can be tailor-made, everyone has different opinions and I will love to help! But I will be honest that I have a lot of experience with beginners.
Thank you for taking your time to go through my long-talk profile and hopefully I have a chance to talk to you.See Reviews From Students

You can pay one lesson at a time, or buy in bulk for a discount (open a tutor's profile to see their pricing options).
We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.
To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the '?' in the corner of the screen. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.
1-on-1 lessons are perhaps the best way to improve speaking skills, and because of this many students use LanguaTalk to learn to speak Mandarin fluently. That said, some students have other, more specific goals. Tell your tutor what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Most tutors offer a trial for free. If they do not, they’ll offer a trial session at a discount compared to their usual hourly rate.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in Mandarin as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too!
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
Most of the Mandarin tutors on our site are able to teach students of all levels. When you click on a tutor's profile you'll see if certain levels are not supported. For example, certain tutors cannot teach complete beginners.
Likewise, you can also see on the tutor's profile whether they're suitable for all ages. Online Mandarin lessons are sometimes taken to support school/college studies. Usually, the tutor will be able to customise the lessons to follow the material and topics covered in the student's exams. Please note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever Mandarin tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
We want students to have an exceptional learning experience on LanguaTalk, so we only accept the very best tutor applications. Though we consider qualifications and experience, we place equal value on communication skills, personality and reviews from previous students. Almost all tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and we require that they can speak English too.
Each tutor is different - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right Mandarin tutor for you.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. To see tutors who are likely to fit your weekly schedule, use the availability filter at the top. Then when you see a tutor you like, check their profile calendar to make sure their time slots work for you. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have lots of students.
Our booking system is designed to be incredibly easy to use. You can see tutors' available hours in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to purchase them one at a time, or buy in bulk with a volume discount. You can pay securely by card on our website.
You can manually add bookings to your personal calendar, or if you use Google calendar, you can add bookings automatically with our syncing feature. You'll also be able to receive email reminders to help ensure you don't forget to turn up.
You can reschedule or cancel lessons in a couple of clicks. Note that this can only be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. This rule is required to protect tutors, who lose income when lessons are cancelled at the last minute.
Sometimes students feel uncertain about learning Mandarin online because they think it’ll be totally different to learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a strong relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen Mandarin tutor online, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. They’ll usually also share learning resources with you (using Google Docs, YouTube etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time.
If you live in the US or Europe, face-to-face Mandarin lessons may cost anywhere between $20 and $60 (USD) per hour. Online tutoring tends to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel to you. An online Mandarin tutor could cost anywhere from $13 to $50 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, Mandarin tutors typically charge between $14 and $40 per hour.
Of course, learning 1-on-1 with an experienced Mandarin tutor is not the cheapest way to learn; you could learn via a free app instead. But if you're serious about learning, nothing beats 1-on-1 Mandarin lessons with a great teacher.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take lessons, you can use a free app such as Duolingo to build your vocabulary. And to improve your listening skills, you can watch TV and listen to podcasts in Mandarin. But to learn how to actually speak a language, you need to talk to a native speaker on a regular basis and receive accurate feedback so that you improve. If you want to make fast progress, it's best to take 1-on-1 lessons that are tailored to your needs by an experienced online Mandarin teacher.Arabic tutors | Chinese tutors | Dutch tutors | English tutors | French tutors | German tutors | Greek tutors | Italian tutors | Japanese tutors | Korean tutors | Portuguese tutors | Romanian tutors | Russian tutors | Spanish tutors | Swedish tutors | Thai tutors
