Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How to improve conversation skills in Chinese?

Wether you're a beginner or already quite fluent in Chinese, the best way to improve your skills is with a conversational Chinese tutor. For beginners, it is vital because they need more direction. But even fluent non-native speakers have things to tweak and perfect, which is what a tutor can help with.

How to practice Chinese conversation?

To practice conversational Chinese, you need to have conversations. Your tutor is a great conversation partner, but they don't have to be the only one. You can practice chatting with your fellow learners. You can speak out loud to yourself to practice the actualy verbalization of your thoughts in Chinese. It's also a good idea to watch some YouTube videos in Chinese or TV shows where you can pick up some helpful expressions.

Chinese conversation classes online or offline?

One of the first things you have to decide is whether you want to learn Chinese online or offline. While offline learning may be good in some aspects, online lessons are greater because you don't have to go anywhere. It frees up some extra time for you. Plus, you get to learn in the comfort and familiar environment of your home. You can direct all your focus on the actual learning.

Do I need a native Chinese-speaking tutor?

If you're a beginner, you're better off with a tutor who speaks your native language. This way, you can ask about anything that's not clear to you. Similarly, the tutor can explain things in detail so you understand things. But when you feel confident enough, it's a great idea to switch to a native speaker if you want to improve your spoken Chinese. Non-native speakers can phrase sentences correctly, but they just don't always sound natural. Non-native speakers use more complex words and constructions where native speakers would throw in a phrasal verb and say things in a simpler way.

How to choose a great conversational Chinese teacher?

  1. Introduction video. It'll give you an idea of how this Chinese conversation tutor is, how they speak, how they carry themself.
  2. Rating and reviews. Read what other students are saying and if they mention specifically that the tutor is great with conversational skills.
  3. Qualifications. In the tutor's profile, see if they mention any certifications they have.
  4. Have a trial lesson with a conversational Chinese tutor. See if you like the way they speak. It might be a good idea to have your tutor as your spoken-Chinese role model.
