Do you know of the Chinese Phonetic system-PINYIN? it's the very foundation for Chinese language. There are almost 90 thousands Chinese characters, How many did you know...
I am a Chinese tutor in Thessaloniki, Greece. it seems Greeks they are more enjoy relaxing than anything esle. There are totally different story in China, Chinese can sacrifice their weekends even holidays in order to find more chances or upgrading themselves. nevertheless, my Greek students, they couldn't accept any more classes during summer holiday, how about u? if you are also interested in learning Chinese, drop me a message!
From Yesterday i have 4 more new students, their ages are from 6 to 13, and dad of this 4 kids, i understand they are very excited about learning new things, but i felt like the class out of control and funny at the same time, they have too many questions while i was explaining something else, since they are very exciting to repeat after me-so very noisy either. actually teachers in china they are very strict, they don't allow students talk at all in the class, but i am here in Greece now, i could not use exactly the same way to deal with the same situation. anyhow, i am enjoy teaching them.
Nowday, I am just trying to find the way to do it effectively, so that they could absorb the knowledge quickly and improve myself either.
Lately i have already set up my own goal-my Greek students are able to write his own blog in Chinese in the future!
