About Barbara

I got training in Beijing Language University for Teaching Chinese as a 2nd Language. To me teaching my native language is more than a part time job. It's also fun for a lot of reasons.

First of all it will help people a lot in their future life if they want to move to China or develop their career related to China, or if they are just interested in Chinese culture. 2nd, it will be a chance for me to communicate with people of different background. 3rd, it's a great opportunity to introduce to people the Chinese culture and history that I love. After all, teaching language is not just about the language itself. More importantly, it's about the culture where the language comes from.

I worked in China for US-based and Europe-based multinational companies for totally almost 20 years and interacted with people from various countries. Plus the Chinese teaching training I received, I understand very well the particular challenge westerners could have in learning Chinese and I have learned the right teaching methodology. My teaching is practical. In particular, I can teach business language and introduce how business is conducted in China for business people.

I am flexible in teaching hours especially if you can accept on-line teaching. I look forward to working with you! Let's make Chinese learning a fun and valuable experience!
