Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

👨‍🎓 How to choose a Chinese tutor?

All Chinese tutors, both Cantonese and Mandarin, have a profile on the platform with information about their qualifications and experience, teaching methodology and availability. 

📖 How do the Chinese classes work? 

It depends to a large extent on the modality chosen. In the case of tuition centres, students follow a predetermined itinerary with common objectives for all students. Private tuition at home, or online tuition, can be customised according to the learning pace and time availability of the students. 

👀 Are there native Chinese tutors at FindTutors? 

Many of the Chinese tutors available on the FindTutors platform are native speakers. Having a native Chinese tutor will help you to accelerate they learning. You can familiarise yourself with the pronunciation and accent, as well as learn first-hand about the culture and customs. 

💷 How much does private tuition in Chinese cost? 

The average price of private tuition ranges between 12 and 16 pounds. Factors such as the type of classes, the number of sessions contracted per week and the qualifications and experience of the Chinese Mandarin and Cantonese tutors are decisive when it comes to establishing the cost of tutoring.

More about private tuition in Chinese

Get the most out of your Chinese classes 

Learning Chinese means joining a community of more than 1.1 billion people around the world who share this language. Do you know what this means academically, occupationally or socially? Exactly. A multitude of opportunities in all areas of life. Work, education, residence, holidays... The fastest and most effective way to learn the language is to sign up for private tuition. 

A Chinese private tutor can design a personalised learning path to help you to learn Chinese from scratch, step by step, or to expand your knowledge. 

Why learn Chinese? 

Learning Chinese can bring many benefits. Getting to know an ancient culture, travelling to the country to learn more about its customs, getting to know its literature, cinema or music... These are some of the advantages of taking private tuition in Chinese. 

  • Improve your job skills and get a better paid job: More and more companies are requesting profiles that are fluent in Chinese. In a recruitment process, if your skills are similar to those of other candidates, learning Chinese could be the differentiating factor in getting hired. 
  • Because it is not as difficult to learn as you have been told: It is true that you need a lot of private tuition to master the language, but making yourself understood and understanding your interlocutor is not so complicated if you follow the teachings of your Chinese tutor. 
  • Living and working in China: A Chinese language course can open doors to a job market where the technology, marketing and business administration sectors are in constant demand for experienced talent. You can also use private tuition as a bridge to Japan to work in the tourism sector. 

Find Chinese tutors for private tutoring 

In order to learn Chinese, it is essential that you find a Chinese tutor with experience in teaching the language. Here are the three most accessible ways to do this:

  • Chinese tutor at home: Depending on the city you are in, you may be able to hire a Chinese tutor to come to your home to give the class. This is a good alternative if you don't feel like travelling, but you run the risk of not being able to find tutors close to where you live. 
  • Chinese tuition centres: Chinese tuition centres use a tried and tested methodology to ensure that students learn Chinese. Many of them have native Chinese tutors on staff who can facilitate your understanding of the language. 
  • Online Chinese tuition: One of the most popular ways to learn Chinese in recent times is online tuition. Online Chinese tutors give their classes through videoconferencing platforms such as Skype or Zoom. Students connect at the agreed time to practice conversations, resolve doubts or use collaborative work tools such as Google Drive with their Chinese tutor

Tips for learning Chinese 

If you want to optimise and accelerate your learning, in addition to private tuition you can use some strategies like the ones we share below. Here are some tips for learning Chinese

  • Look for series or films in Chinese: The aim, especially if you are taking beginners' Chinese classes, is not for you to understand the conversations, but to get used to the rhythm and tone of the voices. 
  • Use lists of words, numbers and basic expressions: One of the secrets to learning Chinese is to stay motivated. To do this you need to see results, and at first it is not always easy. But if you have some lists of basic words such as greetings, numbers, colours or even names, you can practice both pronunciation and writing and check that you are making progress with your private tuition. 
  • An app to practice Chinese: A good complement to your tutor's teaching is to download an app such as "Hello Talk". This is a platform designed for

intermediate-advanced Chinese learners. It is very similar to WhatsApp. You sign up, enter their language and start chatting with other Chinese learners. If you get lost in the conversation, you can use its simultaneous translator. 

  • Chinese classes on YouTube: Although not as effective as private tuition with a Chinese tutor, you can find free Chinese courses on YouTube to reinforce your learning. Always consult your Chinese tutor for personalised recommendations according to your level. 

How to get the most out of private tuition in Chinese 

In order to get the most out of your Chinese private tuition, it is essential that you become an organised person, that you are consistent in your learning and that you put into practice everything your Chinese private tuition tutor teaches you.

  • Study Chinese every day: It doesn't matter if you have a Chinese class or not. Reinforce your learning everyday and set aside at least half an hour every day to increase your level. You will master the language in much less time than you think. 
  • Participate in your Chinese classes: Whether you have chosen private tuition at home or you have enrolled in a Chinese tuition centre in your city, one of the best techniques to accelerate your learning is to actively participate in the classes. Ask questions, participate in the forums, speak without fear of being wrong, ask your Chinese tutor to share resources and tools that will help you improve... 
  • Create a study schedule: Organise your time to learn Chinese around a study schedule in which they include private tuition schedules and short, medium and long-term goals. Set aside a place to study Chinese at home and get rid of any distractions during the times set aside for learning.
