Chinese teacher, Master degree, 5 years' teaching experience. Chinese classes well designed differently for children and adult. Preparation of exams (HSK, CNED etc.). Presentation of Chinese culture

Methodology

Hello everyone,

My name is Camillus BAI, I'm 29. I'm a native-born Chinese, my hometown is Chengdu, China. My highest diploma is Master degree. I live in Paris since September 2016.

I have 5 years' experience on teaching Chinese language and preparing for exams. In the same time, I've organized the conferences in university on various elective subjects of Chinese culture.

Chinese is my mother tongue. I speak English, French, and a little Slovak, Arabic and Sanskrit.

I was conferred a Chinese teacher certificate in Chengdu, China in 2015.

I propose Chinese language class/exam preparation in all levels for adults and children.

I only accept face to face classes and no internet class. Because the quality of face to face communication is much better, and both student and me will be more dynamic.

Beside Chinese language, I also teach Chinese calligraphy and Chinese culture (history, mythology, Buddism, Taoism, etc.). I've developed my Chinese culture subjects for 4 years and once presented them in SKEMA Business School during one year. When you learn Chinese with me, you can also learn my programs of Chinese culture. It is your choice!

I master 2 Chinese instruments, the bamboo flute (Dizi/笛子) and Guqin (古琴). I'm not yet ready to offer class for these instruments regarding some technical/cultural obstacles are difficult to overcome. But if you are interested, I'm happy to explain to you and give you some instructions.

I also practice Chinese martial arts (Jeet Kune Do) since 6 years. We can also talk about it, but in consideration of its danger, I'm not willing to offer class for it.

I'm here waiting for you with impatience! Let's start our cultural journey!

Interview with Camillus BAI

QUESTION 01 | 08
Parlez-vous couramment cette langue en raison de vos origines ou parce qu'un professeur vous a donné envie de l'apprendre ?
Camillus BAI — Je parle chinois couramment comme la langue maternelle, je suis né en Chine et j'ai grandi là-bas jusqu'à 26 ans.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Citez le personnage vivant, historique ou fictif qui est, selon vous, le représentant emblématique de la culture en question !
Camillus BAI — J'aime un héro dans la mythologie chinoise, il s'appelle 盘古(Pangu), il a décidé de créer notre monde, en suite prendre la responsabilité de construire le monde jusqu'à la mort. Son histoire bien explique la sagesse et la responsabilité dans la culture chinoise.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Y-a-t-il, dans celle-ci, un mot, une expression, une tradition ou un comportement typique qui vous amuse particulièrement ?
Camillus BAI — J'admirer le grand maître LAO TSEU, j'ai appris plein de chose à ses côtés. Par exemple, l'amour et responsabilité, il a dit "故贵以身为天下,若可寄天下;爱以身为天下,若可托天下。" (13ème chapitre, 《TAO TE KING》), qui désigne qu'à celui qui estime le monde au prix de sa personne, on peut remettre le monde; à celui qui gouverne le monde comme sa personne, on peut confier le monde.
QUESTION 04 | 08
En quoi savoir parler cette langue est important, que ce soit scolairement, professionnellement ou d'un point de vue plus personnel ?
Camillus BAI — Aujourd'hui la Chine est une grande partie de l'économie mondialement, parler bien le chinois, vous pouvez trouver un travail facilement. Le chinois est de plus en plus important pour les manager supérieur qui travaillent dans un environnement international. En suite, à mon avis, apprendre le chinois vous donnera une nouvelle façon de penser et de connaître le monde, ce qui est le plus précieux pour la vie personnelle.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Quelle est la difficulté principale de cette langue et ce qui peut favoriser son apprentissage ?
Camillus BAI — Le chinois vient de la famille de langue "Sino-Tibetan", ce qui est totalement différent avec les langues européennes, qui sont dans la famille de langue "Hindu-European". Il y a beaucoup de difficultés pour apprendre le chinois, quelques prononciations ne existent pas dans les autres langues, donc c'est difficile de prononcer les syllabes chinoises correctement. Le chinois est la seule langue d'écriture symbolique, et l'écriture de caractère chinois est dur pour tous les élèves.

Pour favoriser son apprentissage, l'élève doit bien s'entraîner la production orale, parle souvent avec son professeur et corrige la prononciation sous une propre instruction. Et aussi, il faut écrire le caractère régulièrement, ne pas essayer d'apprendre beaucoup de caractère en un seul jours, mais 2-3 par jour, continuellement.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Une anecdote en rapport avec votre métier ou votre scolarité à nous raconter ?
Camillus BAI — Quand j'étais encore un étudiant de SKEMA Business School, j'ai fait souvent des conférences de culture chinoise dans mon campus. Une fois, je parlais le sujet "histoire chinoise", j'ai discuté les différences entre la Chine et l'Europe avec mes camarades est mes professeur (les professeur de SKEMA participe mes conférences aussi). On a trouvé beaucoup de choses intéressants, ces expériences m'encouragent souvent d'avancer dans ce chemin.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Aidez-nous à vous connaître un peu mieux en évoquant vos différents voyages.
Camillus BAI — J'ai voyagé en Thaïlande pour 10 jours, en Viêt-Nam pour 2 semaines, en Australie pour 1 mois et demie, en Slovaquie pour 1 mois, et j'habite en France depuis 2 ans.
QUESTION 08 | 08
Qu'est-ce qui fait de vous un Superprof, en + de cette capacité à s'exprimer en plusieurs langues ?
Camillus BAI — La patience et la persévérance sont les clés de devenir un bon professeur, mais l'amour est le plus important. J'aime enseigner la langue et j'ai beaucoup de passion de partager mes cultures.

J'ai une richesse de savoir de la culture chinoise. J'apprends le Bouddhïsme depuis 14 ans, Taoïsme depuis 5 ans et Hinduïsme depuis 11 ans, ils me donnent une grande connaissance. Je maîtrise 2 instruments chinois, Bamboo flûte (笛子), Guqin (古琴), et je fais arts martiaux (截拳道). Tous ces savoir me offrent un profil culturellement riche.

5 ans d'expérience d'enseignement en 3 pays (Chine, France, Slovaquie) me donne une grande capacité. Je suis capable d'expliquer la langue chinoise et la culture chinoise en beaucoup de manière.
