I grew up in Shandong, Jinan. It is a city between Beijing and Shanghai. Right now I live in a small town called Alcalá de Henares 30 mins to Madrid. I speak both English and Spanish fluently.
I have been teaching Chinese for over ten years now, to both native speakers and non-native speakers. For students older than 16, I use HSK (official) STANDARD COURSE textbook for the class, and workbook for homework, unless the student wants something else specific. Besides many years of teaching experience, I also hold a master's degree in language teaching.
To practice pronunciation, I use tongue twisters and children's short poems.
To explain vocabulary, I use mind maps to connect related words, as shown in the video.
To help my students understand Chinese grammar and remember the sentence structure, I always compare the Chinese sentence to its English or Spanish translation.
Let me help you with your Chinese learning. You will see, it will be fun and easy.
