*I teach ENGLISH, MANDARIN, and CANTONESE 我教英文, 中文和粤语*
I'm a TEFL-certified teacher. I got my Bachelor's degree in Psychology in the States, after graduated I did some conservation volunteering in Australia, and then I spent my gap year for cultural exchange in China before studying for my Master's degree in Linguistics at Leeds, UK. I love cross-cultural communications and I made friends with people from all these countries and more. I speak fluent English, Cantonese, Mandarin, and basic Malay. I can read some German and Korean, I used to study them in college but I got really rusty now. And I'm also learning French now. I love movies, food, travel, writing, beach, exploring new cities, visiting gorgeous museums, and quirky local cafés.
I do conversational classes with most of my students. The main focus will be getting you to speak naturally in your target language through fun topics and conversations with some extra materials like articles or websites. I will correct your pronunciation and teach you the ways to speak more like a native instead of translating word by word from your native language. We can talk about any topic you like. I enjoy talking about food, travel, movies, technology, internet, health, humanity, language, and culture.
我们上课的主要焦点是让你自然地用英文/中文/粤语交流。上课的教材会用视频或网站，还有有趣的话题。 我们聊天的当儿我会纠正你的发音，并教你如何说得更自然更像当地人，而不只是用你的母语逐字翻译。我住过美国, 英国, 中国和马来西亚, 所以聊相关的主题我都很有经验。我们可以聊任何你喜欢的话题。我也喜欢聊饮食 旅游 电影 文化 科技 电子产品 人性 健康 语言 等等。
My most effective way of learning a language is exposing myself to something I love in the target language. So learning through a topic you love is a better way to get higher fluency. You can bring any topic you'd like to talk about to our class, and we will discuss everything such as meaning, pronunciation, and context about the language. The major takeaway from our lesson will be finding yourself relating much better to your target language than before.
