Here are the major concepts a Min Nan tutor can cover:
Min Nan is more of a spoken language than a written one because it lacks a standardized writing system of its own. The characters that are used in their writing system are borrowed from Chinese. While the vowels in the Min Nan alphabet are similar to Mandarin, it consists of more consonants than both Mandarin and Cantonese. Min Nan is syllabic, which means that symbols are used to represent the syllables. This can be very difficult for English speakers to learn because it is nothing like English. Min Nan tutoring can be helpful in learning the alphabet because a tutor can help guide students through the unfamiliar characters. There are three main divisions of Min Nan in terms of dialects. These dialects have limited mutual intelligibility. Min Nan tutoring can be helpful in learning the different dialects because a tutor can provide insight into the culture differences between the three different dialects.
