Top Chinese Tutor related questions

If you’re a native English speaker, you’ll find Chinese quite challenging to learn. But it’s a worthwhile endeavour - after all, it’s the most widely spoken language in the world! Learning Chinese can help you with business transactions, let you make the most out of a vacation in China or Macau, or even give you a better appreciation for the culture whenever you’re about to order Chinese food. As with any learning experience, it’s always worth the effort.

Mandarin, the most widely spoken Chinese dialect, is also the easiest to learn. This is because it has four tones (as opposed to Cantonese, which has 6-9 tones). Tone is a feature present in Chinese but not in any European language (including English). You can learn more about these tones and the Chinese languages’ differences when you start your basic Chinese lessons. 

Yes, if you study it full-time. If you’d like to be more proficient in speaking and writing in Chinese, it may take you a full 3-5 years depending on how much time you want to dedicate to your study of the language. But don’t get intimidated by this time frame! You can start with basic Chinese lessons, decide if you want to push through, then continue with advanced studies alongside your chosen Tasker.

As with most other tutors and language tutors, you’ll want to ask about their qualifications, teaching style, curriculum, and what to expect from their lessons. You may also want to ask about their experience with giving Chinese lessons to kids (if children are the intended students). If you’re about to take advanced Chinese classes, or learn in time for a trip or move to China, you’ll want to set your expectations as well.

Some Taskers may be able to offer Chinese or Mandarin lessons online. But to be safe, include this detail in your task post. This will limit the offers you’ll receive to those potential Taskers who have the necessary online learning tools. Just make sure to check your computer or Internet set-up before you decide on going for virtual classes.

You can find a Chinese tutor near you via Airtasker. Our platform lets you post requests that fully detail your needs, such as primary or advanced lessons, online or home tutors, and so on. Instead of posting on various sites or canvassing online courses, all you’ll need to do is post a task and wait for the offers! Remember: it’s not just about getting the “best” Chinese tutor available, but finding the one who is the best fit for you.

What do Chinese tutoring services include?

Chinese tutoring services will usually cover tones, vocabulary, grammar, and useful phrases. Ideally, you’ll learn how to read and listen to Chinese and how to write and speak the language. Moreover, your lessons’ coverage will vary depending on your personal needs, including the time per session, how advanced you are, or if the student is a toddler or child. 

In general, though, here’s what you can expect when you book Chinese language lessons through Airtasker:

Basic Chinese Lessons: Tones

Beginners need to learn about tones, especially since this is a language feature that isn’t present in European languages (including English). Depending on the Chinese dialect you wish to learn, you may have to master 4-9 tones. 

Introductions and useful Chinese phrases

Your Tasker shows you how to introduce yourself in Chinese, as well as how to greet others. By extension, you may learn things like numbers, ages, occupations, titles, the members of the family, and more. 

Next, your Tasker may show you how to say or write useful phrases. These may be as common as “Where is the bus station?”, “How much?”, and “Where is the ladies’ room?” or as specific as what you’ll need to learn when doing business with Chinese speakers or vacationing in Hong Kong. Keep in mind that you can have your tutor tailor this to your motivations for learning the language.

Chinese grammar and proficiency

Since you’ve already been introduced to a number of Chinese words and phrases, you’ll proceed to the rules of the language. This includes using the characters (which represent syllables) to form words, phrases, and sentences. You’ll learn how to phrase questions, negative statements, and more.  

Once you’ve gotten a grasp of the basics, your Tasker may drill you by having you read and write in Chinese, listen to Chinese conversations, watch Chinese videos, and converse using the language. You may also be asked to translate materials from Chinese to English and vice versa. The goal is to build your fluency in the language and familiarise yourself with just about any Chinese phrase you may encounter.

Advanced Chinese lessons

Advanced Chinese lessons usually cover more words and phrases. You can expect more complex exercises and more frequent conversations with your tutor (or with others, as instructed by your tutor). Some may also consider advanced Chinese lessons if they have already learned Mandarin and now want to master Cantonese.
