Top Mandarin Tutor related questions

What should I ask a Mandarin teacher?

Before you pick your Mandarin tutor, you may want to ask them about:

  • Why they wanted to be a tutor
  • Their prior teaching experience
  • Their curriculum
  • Their students’ success
  • What you can expect from them
  • Their experience with kids/toddle

Where do I find Mandarin teachers near me?

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.

Can my Tasker do online tutorials?

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.

Is Mandarin the same as Chinese?

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. 

Can I learn Mandarin on my own?

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.

How long will it take to learn 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.

What do Mandarin lessons include?

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: 

Introduction to Mandarin

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. 

Basic Mandarin Phrases

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. 

Basic Mandarin Grammar

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. 

Advanced Mandarin Grammar

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. 

If you’re short on time but need to learn Mandarin to create business presentations, you might like to hire a Mandarin translator in your community.
