Teach me mandarin
"I could not recommend Emma highly enough! I joined Airtasker with the intention of gaining a mandarin coach and as well as that I gained an amazing friend! I have never met anyone so dedicated, thoughtful and enthusiastic towards teaching. I would absolutely recommend Emma to anybody and everybody. As a matter of fact, I have already connected her with another friend of mine who is wanting to learn Chinese. What an amazing person! Xoxox"

Choose the offer that’s right for you.
Before you pick your Mandarin tutor, you may want to ask them about:
You can find Mandarin teachers right here on Airtasker! To start, tap the “Post a task” button and fill out all the details - if the student is a child, GCSE-level student, or adult; what you’d like to learn and why; your availability; if you want online lessons or in-person sessions; your budget; and so on. Tap “Get quotes” and wait for potential Taskers to send you their offers. Go through the offers and customer reviews, then pick your Mandarin tutor.
This depends on a Tasker’s approach when it comes to teaching Mandarin. Some may be used to a live set-up similar to that of a classroom. If you prefer learning online, it’s important to indicate this in your task post. This limits the offers to Mandarin tutors who have already taught Mandarin online or are willing to adjust their teaching style to fit your needs.
In essence, yes. Mandarin is a dialect of Chinese. Other Chinese dialects include Cantonese, Shanghainese, Wu, and others. Most of the Chinese speak Mandarin, but not all Chinese-speaking countries do. For example, Hong Kongers speak Mandarin, but Cantonese and English are the country’s languages of choice. Meanwhile, Macau and Taiwan use Traditional Chinese, while Mainland China and Singapore use Simplified Chinese.
While it is possible to learn Mandarin on your own, this is a language that depends heavily on tones, so it’s essential to converse with someone and receive feedback. This is the best way to hear the tones and practice them yourself. If, for example, you only want help with creating marketing materials or writing documents in Mandarin, you can use Airtasker to look for marketing experts and writers who know Mandarin.
For native English speakers, it will take around 2,200 class hours (that’s 5 hours of practice for 88 weeks) to become fluent in Mandarin. But don’t get intimidated by this - you can start by booking Mandarin lessons for beginners, then proceed at a pace set by you or your tutor. With enough practice, you’ll get to your desired level of Mandarin fluency.
Environment Science Tutor
When you request for Mandarin lessons via Airtasker, you’ll get a tutor who can conduct basic or advanced classes for you. You can ask for in-person lessons, or online sessions if this is something you prefer. You can also find teachers for toddlers, children, and even adults.
Your tutor’s approach may differ, as they may have learned Mandarin as a second language or they might be a native speaker from the start. But, overall, here is what you can expect when you start your Mandarin lessons with the help of a Tasker:
If you’re new to Mandarin, your Tasker may begin by teaching you how to introduce yourself and greet people. Your tutor may then explain Chinese numbers, time, money, and terms for various family members, occupations, and ages.
There is no Chinese alphabet since the characters are all syllables that are put together to create words. Hence, you’ll go straight to forming words or phrases. Next, your Mandarin tutor shows you how to construct basic phrases and questions.
Your Mandarin tutor needs to know your motivations for learning the language, since they may tailor this to your needs. For example, if you intend to do business with Mandarin speakers, you’ll need to learn business terms and etiquette. If you are vacationing in China, you’ll want to know how to request items from shops or order from a restaurant.
As you get deeper into the lessons, your tutor will cover Mandarin grammar elements, such as tones, nouns, verbs, adjectives, and prepositions. The four phonetic tones don’t exist in European languages and English, so it’ll require an attentive ear and lots of exercises for you to master this aspect of Mandarin.
Nouns don’t have articles or genders, nor distinctions between singular and plural. Verbs are relatively straightforward in Mandarin - they don’t change depending on person, tense, and number. Instead, you’ll make use of tense makers and measure words to convey additional information, all of which your tutor will test you on.
If you already know basic Mandarin, you may want more advanced lessons, such as those covering questions, negative statements, requesting items, “because” sentences, and more.
By this time, your Tasker may expect you to be able to read, listen, write, and speak quite a lot of Mandarin. They may have you read Mandarin books or watch Mandarin videos, have you converse with others in Mandarin, or even write essays in the language.

We are an Australian family with a 7 year old daughter who is in grade 2. She has spent the last few years learning basic mandarin. Although last year with COVID we were unable to have a tutor in our house so she was only able to have lessons for term 1. We would like to have a tutor come to us in Preston 2 or 3 mornings per week from 7-8.30am to continue lessons with our daughter. We would like this to start at the first week of term 1. Although if you have time in the next few weeks we could start some lessons during the day while she is on Easter holidays. Thank you

Hi, We have two boys - aged 4 and 7 - and we are keen to get them to learn Mandarin. The oldest has 1 lesson a week at school but we'd like to look at a permanent, 2 lessons a week after school i.e. 3-4pm or 3-430 We are flexible on days but would like to lock in the same days each week (except for holidays etc). Start date would be mid April Please let us know your thoughts on teaching two kids of different age and how much they would require to start to learn Mandarin but also still enjoy it. We do NOT want this to be hours of homework and drills for now, but a fun lesson that helps them develop pronunication and language skills. The ultimate goal is that by the time they are 16 or 17 they are fluent like a native.
