How easy to learn Chinese?
It depends on how it is delivered. If following a logical and constructive method, you can achieve a lot more with much less fruitless labor.
Chinese words are monosyllables, the phonetic system was developed based on Roman letters in 1950s. Majority of the sounds are similar to English. It is actually not as difficult as you imagined.
Many of my learnder achieved top score within 1-2 years and become a fun of Chinese language.
Follow me one hour a week, you will be not only fluent in Mandarin, but love the sounds, the images and meanings.
I am a qualified and experienced language tutor and cross cultural trainer. I have been actively delivering tuition and training since 2009 both in the UK and contenient Europe. Over thousand of people from all backgrounds and levels enjoyed my trainings.
My strength is to tailor the courses to meet the students' needs, beginning with developing their Individual Learning Plan and defining their Personal Learning Style. And apply various approaches to make the learning interesting and effective. All my school students have scored As in their GCSE and A Level exams. While the adult learners have achieved excellent outcomes.
I am happy to deliver structured courses to all.

I was very pleased with our first lesson and found your approach interesting and constructive. Rather than just have me repeat words you helped explain some of the culture and history which was very useful.
I am now in Thailand and go to China next week where I hope to practise some of the words you taught me.
See you on my return,
Thank you for your feedback. I am really pleased that you enjoyed our first lesson and you were doing very well.
I am looking forward to seeing you again soon.
