Mandarin Chinese 1 Tutoring FAQ

Mandarin Chinese 1 courses equip you with knowledge of the core fundamentals of the Mandarin dialect and prepares you for more advanced studies in the language. While this may be the first in a sequence of Mandarin classes that you are planning to take, you should not assume that it will necessarily be the easiest one. It's possible you may encounter more trouble in this class than in more advanced ones because of the initial challenges that learning Mandarin Chinese presents. Throughout the course, you will be expected to familiarize yourself with several different ways of representing Chinese text, including Pinyin Romanization, simplified characters, and traditional characters. For students who grew up speaking a language based on the Latin alphabet, this can present a large obstacle from the very first day of instruction. Additionally, students must learn to work with both hand-written and typed forms, which can cause additional stress. If this challenging subject has you down, get connected with a Mandarin Chinese 1 tutor in your area for one-on-one instruction.

Certain features of spoken Mandarin also present a bit of a learning curve. For example, Mandarin Chinese's use of four tones can create a stumbling block for new students. English makes extremely little use of tones, while Mandarin speakers rely on tone as a significant factor in determining the meaning of a spoken sentence. These initial difficulties must be surmounted before students can proceed with the main work of Mandarin Chinese 1, which is learning the core vocabulary needed to express yourself and communicate with others in the language.

Online Mandarin Chinese 1 Tutoring review by Wei
In this class, we worked on the Chinese consonants and vowels. As a singer, the student was very talented in grasping different tones, he was able to read every tone accurately. We also practiced reading more pinyin by showing some sample words. We will do more practice and introduce some characters in Chinese.

The student had a good session today. He learned his dictation words and copied two sentences containing those words. He read a passage out loud in Chinese. He checked his work and made corrections to previous workbook page and completed one additional page in his workbook.

Online Mandarin Chinese 1 Tutoring review by Ginger
The student and I went over the previous session's dialogue on date and time, and then we went over a new dialogue involving hobbies. We also reviewed basic sentence structures and various modifications of sentence structure, and we practiced a few grammar drills. We also discussed ways to maintain Mandarin skills, including watching movies or TV shows in Mandarin.

Online Mandarin Chinese 1 Tutoring review by Mingzhang
We mainly reviewed the characters learned in the past two weeks. I asked the students to read and recognize the characters I put on the presentation paper. The characters were about colors and common objects in real life so I also reviewed the meanings of them by asking them to connect the colors to the objects by reading the characters. We played a game in which the squares were presented in Chinese characters to improve their recognition. I also introduced a traditional Chinese food, zong zi, as today is the holiday to have that food.

Online Mandarin Chinese 1 Tutoring review by Jessica
I taught the student eight words (up, down, big, small, you, me, hello, goodbye) and reintroduced the word for dog. We did some charades to help memorize the new words and created very simple sentences to help her remember and contextualize the vocabulary. For example, I taught her how to say "my dog is big" and "your dog is small". We used flashcards to help teach this point, which I think helped a lot. I told her to study her flashcards and bring them to our session next week.
