My children (ages 10 and Protected content been studying Mandarin in school for years before we moved to Sri Lanka. They are currently enrolled in weekend classes at the Confucius Institute, but the classes do not allow each individual student very much speaking practice. Because I don't speak Chinese myself, I am looking for a native Chinese speaker who could come to our house for an hour or two per week and speak Chinese with them--conversation, watch videos and discuss them, etc. You don't need to be a trained teacher or tutor, just an educated native speaker who likes kids. You don't even need to speak English! (In fact, it might be an advantage because you would then force them to listen and respond only in Chinese.) I am willing to pay a good hourly rate. Please reply through the group or call me at Protected content .
