Varsity Tutors is ready to help students of all ages enroll in Cincinnati Chinese lessons. Whether you're a freshman taking Chinese I at Oak Hills High School or a student in another area school, a graduate student taking electives at Xavier University, or someone wanting to learn more about the Chinese history and culture, our courses can help you. Many times students are required to take a foreign language to fulfill graduation requirements, and Chinese is a good choice. However, learning a new language has its challenges that can't always be addressed in a regular classroom setting. Getting additional help from outside resources is one of the ways you can tackle these challenges and improve your Chinese language skills.

As the most popular language in the world, Chinese is spoken by over one billion native speakers, but it is also considered one of the hardest languages to learn. The Chinese language has several dialects, including Mandarin, one of the most popular ones. Mandarin Chinese is the official language in Taiwan and the People's Republic of China, but historically most Chinese people who live in the United States speak Cantonese. Chinese has over 50,000 characters, but knowing only around 2,500 of them can allow someone to be fluent. Each character symbolizes a syllable, making the Chinese language the only modern pictographic language.

If you're a student having difficulty pronouncing words or you're a business professional learning the Chinese language for the first time, Varsity Tutors can help you figure out which option for Chinese lessons will work best for you. Our online classes being monthly, or you may instead connect with a Cincinnati Chinese tutor within 24 hours. You aren't limited to one option, either, because you could choose to sign up for both services. Each type of lesson has its own benefits, so the decision is yours to make.

What material will Cincinnati Chinese lessons cover?

Chinese has little in common with English, making it one of the hardest languages to learn. Chinese has no articles, plurals, or verb inflections. Native English speakers know a word is plural when an "s" is added. However, Chinese nouns stay in the same form no matter whether they are singular or plural. That may sound like a difficult concept, but once you get used to it, it gets easier. You'll also learn that Chinese is a tonal language. The tone of a word changes its meaning. For instance, Mandarin Chinese has four tones, which sound like this, "flat, rising, falling then rising, and falling." Other Chinese dialects may have up to nine different tones.

A common barrier when learning a new language is the lack of being able to practice. Cincinnati Chinese lessons give you that opportunity to practice with others in a group setting and help you improve your Chinese writing, reading, and speaking skills. If you are regularly exposed to a new language, you'll have a better chance of retaining what you've learned. Consistent speaking, reading, and writing is important when you want to improve your language skills. Chinese lessons are one of the convenient ways to learn the language in a consistent way whether you're just getting started with the language or you've been speaking it for a while.

With one-on-one instruction, you might improve your Chinese skills even more because you'll have more personalized methods. Private Chinese instructors can spend as much or as little time on the concepts as you would like whether you want help learning the characters or need help understanding vocabulary. A Chinese instructor can learn more about you and make a plan based on your learning styles, whether you are a visual, kinesthetic, or audio learner. For example, you might look at your surroundings and learn the vocabulary for the things you see.

How will the two types of Cincinnati Chinese lessons help me learn?

While learning Chinese might seem intimidating at first, a Cincinnati Chinese lesson can put your mind at ease. These lessons fit into your busy schedule, whether you have school, a job, or family activities. If you choose to take an online class, you'll meet in a virtual classroom with other students and an experienced Chinese instructor. You'll be able to practice speaking Chinese with the other students, and you'll get feedback from the instructor. We can get you started quickly. New sections of classes begin each month starting at various times. You can also choose how long your classes will last-either two-week sessions or four-week sessions. You should have no trouble finding a Chinese class that works for you and your busy schedule.

We can help you find a qualified, independent tutor if you're interested in working with a Cincinnati Chinese tutor. Working one-on-one with a private instructor makes the session more personalized. They will target specific concepts for you to work on and teach using methods that resonate with you. You can choose between online or in person tutoring if you decide to go with personalized instruction. Online tutoring gives you the opportunity to attend your sessions from wherever you want, like your house or a coffee shop. You'll meet with your tutor through our Live Learning Platform. The academic mentor will use a virtual whiteboard and video chat to communicate with you and do the lesson. You can also meet your instructor in person, such as at your home or a library. It's up to you which option you choose.
