For high-level learners, I will use real-life situation to practice more your speaking and listening. I'm always available off the classes to give you feedback, for example, you can send me audio anytime and I give you feedback.

I’m Chinese native speaker, and I can speak English, Portuguese and Spanish. I have more than ten years mandarin teaching experience, and I have Brazilian, British and other European students. I got my degree in Portuguese language from a Chinese college and I had an exchange student experience in Brazil and I am an MBA graduate from a top UK business school.

Perfect! Christiane was a very energetic and attentive teacher. I enjoyed our first lesson practicing conversational mandarin and learning new vocabulary along the way. She wrote down all the terms afterwards and sent me a word document so I use it to practice afterwards - very helpful!

I just had my first class with Christiane Lao Shi and she was great! Very easy to understand and thankfully for me extremely patient. She makes the difficult task of learning Chinese interesting and fun. I immediately book more classes with her for the upcoming weeks.

This tutor is excellent, helped my daughter speak Chinese very well! Fast replies and large availability. Would definitely recommend!

I'm doing Chinese classes with Christiane for more than one year, her class is very helpful to me! I think because she can speak 4 languages, she showed a lot the efficient and practical way she uses to learn Chinese. Very recommended!

Interview with Christiane

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Christiane — I speak Chinese fluently because of my origin, but I still can speak Portuguese fluently, which is not my original language, I learned this language because I had a very wonderful teacher who uses the great method to let me practice a lot, and I'm using the same method that my portuguese teacher used.
QUESTION 02 | 08
2) Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?
Christiane — I think the character may be "long history and great future"
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?
Christiane — The local expressions in Chinese, different regions have different ones, and they show the personality of the region, I like to study them.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking this language matter to you?
Christiane — Firstly, I think the country is moving to a leading role in the world, and there are more career opportunities in this country. Secondly, China is a country so different from others, the culture is so charming, I think it's a great experience to live and work in China.
QUESTION 05 | 08
5) What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?
Christiane — According to my Chinese learning students, the most difficult part is speaking and listening, because Chinese is not a language that respects all grammars, China had the first indigenous grammar book in 1889.
So there are a lot of local expressions that only can be learned with native speakers.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.
Christiane — When I was learning Portuguese, I remember I had learned "cansado" which means tired, and "casado" which means married. Their difference is only a "n" and their pronunciation is very similar for me as a beginner. And one day my brazilian friend asked me how are you in portuguese, I replied "to casada" which is I'm married... I wanted to say "I'm tired". I realized this mistake from my friend's surprised face, it was embarrassing.

So I think in Chinese learning is the same way, a very little difference can make a very different meaning. I practiced a lot with portuguese native speakers to learn, I think Chinese learning needs practice with native speakers, too.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of the language?
Christiane — I have learned two years Portuguese in China before going to Brazil, and the first few days I still can't understand Portuguese, this disappointed me a lot. But I think after 2 months living together with Brazilians, I had learned a lot of their daily expressions, even those I will never learn in a textbook, and I can communicate all in Portuguese with local people, this trip was necessary for my language learning.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in language?I came to London to do my MBA course, and I started to have european students here. One of my students recommended Superprof, he said it's being searched. I checked Superprof site, it's very organised and Superprof doesn't charge commission of tution fee if I'm in a premium account.
