Every student is different so whilst my all classes cover the basics, they all are developed to personally meet your requirments and expectations.
I use various teaching methods, such as role play, newspapers, television episodes, even a trip to chinese resturant as well as a variety of text books and mock tests.
I will explain the grammer and how culture effects the language.
I speak with the standard correct Chinese pronouciation and use both simplified and traditional characters and even classical.

Moreover, she tailors the lesson to my stated need, namely to acquire some conversational Chinese rather than trying to learn literary Chinese which would involve lengthy study of the Chinese characters.
Hui-Mei was very flexible in setting up our lessons so that I could learn what I needed to for a short trip rather than being forced into traditional way of learning from scratch.
This allowed us to create a lesson plan based around my holiday plans and questions and conversation for this trip.
We concentrated on travel essentials such as food, currency, basic greetings etc which was essential as I only had a 9 week time frame to learn.
