It would be dependent on the age of the student, their level, their personality and whether it is a 1-1 or group class (as languages are interactive). Assuming a young learner, aged 4, 1-1 with no knowledge of Mandarin Chinese, I would begin with topical vocabulary that would interest children, such as colours, animals, number and games. Once they possess the ability to introduce themselves in a very basic way (我叫.../我很-开心/难过/怕/生气/..., 我...岁) and understand some of the vocabulary which would grasp their interest, I would then begin with more complex topics, such as reading and writing.
I am a language teacher and a language teacher recruiter.
I taught English to Chinese students for 3.5 years in Guiyang, China. While teaching English, I was required to only speak English in the classroom as this is the most effective language teaching method. I studied Mandarin in my spare time and also by way of university study. I completed the HSK5 in 2017, and now would be HSK6 (C2) due to my having worked as the UK project manager for a Chinese company-most conversations were in Mandarin.
Using my language proficiency in combination with my teaching capability, I am certain that I can effectively teach Mandarin to learners of all ages (from 3-18+), as teaching anything is a skill in itself-one that I possess in abundance.
While I don't expect to be paid extra to travel, try to understand that if the price of petrol is equal to or greater than the profit gained from having taught a class, there is literally no point in my travelling there-so if a class is to be held far from home, please kindly ensure that it exceeds an hour in length.
