I'm a local Beijing girl and would like to provide private Mandarin classes to expats. Interest is the best teacher so I would try to ease the atmosphere and keep the class in a daily life tone - or it can be professional based on your request.
Lessons can be based on your level (Absolute beginner to Advanced). Classes revolve around speaking and listening skills over a coffee chat - usually one to two hours at a time.
I could provide study materials - it could be about topics that local ppl talk about, local headlines, or certain topics you or me find interesting in.
I prefer to meet in the following areas (west of Beijing): XiDan, Fuxingmen, or along the Financial Street.
No charge. This is meant to be a language improving experience but not an exam preparation course - since we will meet at a coffee shop I would be happy to receive a cup of coffee in return tho =p
I'm looking forward to make more friends across nations. Email me for more details: Protected content
