Native Chinese Speaker in Berlin, Experienced Chinese Teacher, currently a Ph.D. Student in Political Science

Methodology

For people with zero Chinese knowledge, I always start with the proper pronunciation of Pinyin. It is vital before moving on to character learning.
For people with some knowledge of Chinese, I tailor the lessons based on the language proficiency and the personal need of the student. With songs and videos, my lessons focus on either reading comprehension or oral communication.

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Pei will plan your first lesson with care.

Background

Born and grew up in China, I started teaching Chinese to exchanged foreign students for a part-time job in the university when I studied in Beijing.
I moved to Singapore to get my master degree in International Relations, where I worked full-time in a consultancy and at the National University of Singapore as a researcher. During my time of study and work in Singapore, I continued teaching people interested in Chinese learning, just because to me it's so much fun to be able to help others and present my own culture via language teaching.
I am currently doing my Ph.D. in Berlin, and I am looking forward to helping more that are interested in Chinese learning.

Pei's CV

I have been teaching Chinese part-time since 2009. My field is political science, and I find my major particularly helpful in reading comprehension and business writing, because of the focus on details.

Perfect! Pei kommt einmal pro Woche zu uns ins Büro und unterrichtet uns zu dritt. Die Methoden, die sie nutzt, sorgen für ein schnelles Lernen und viel Spaß am Unterricht. Wir können Pei sehr empfehlen!

Pei's response

Karsten and his colleagues are eager learners, despite their busy schedules! It's been such a pleasure working with them. I would say that it is more than the Chinese classes that we have together but a cultural study! :) Looking forward to more of this in the future!

Milena

Perfect! Pei is the best teacher you can imagine. She loves the language she is teaching and she is very inspiring because of that. She will involve you in the planning of the class so you can get exactly the lesson you would like to get. Her explanations are very helpful! I can only recommend Pei as a teacher. You won’t regret this :-)

Kevin already speaks fluent Chinese. He is a fast and enthusiastic learner. All I need to do is to broaden his vocabularies by having daily conversations with him. It's been a pleasure working with him!

Michael

Perfect! Pei is a wonderful teacher. She pays attention to my knowledge and goals and even can work alongside the apps I use. Thanks a lot for helping me learn Chinese.

Pei's response

Michael is an enthusiastic and fast learner. He specifies what he needs to learn and focuses on the target. It's been a pleasure to be his Chinese teacher. I have no doubt that he will be able to express himself in fluent Chinese in the near future.

Pei helped me with my Chinese learning from January to June in 2015 in Singapore. She mainly helped me improve my listening and speaking. We practised speaking, and she showed me videos and Chinese songs to help me with the listening. Pei was patient and always came prepared. Too bad she moved to Germany, otherwise I would loved to continue learning Chinese from her.

I had some basic Chinese skills already, and Pei helped me a lot to improve my communication skills. That was very helpful because I have clients in China, and they were very happy when I talked to them in their own language :)

Pei is a great teacher. I started working with her after my Chinese beginners class to continue learning and improve my skills, and she has been incredibly patient and dedicated. She prepared super helpful learning materials for our lessons and even gave me first hand cultural advice when I was going to China for a business trip.

Interview with Pei

QUESTION 01 | 08
Wie kommt es, dass Du fließend Mandarin sprichst? Hängt dies mit Deiner Herkunft zusammen oder hat einst ein/e Lehrer/in die Leidenschaft dafür in Dir geweckt?
Pei — I am a native speaker. I grew up in Southern China speaking Mandarin, Wu Chinese, and Cantonese. My college years in Beijing definitely helped me understand the Northern-Southern differences in Mandarin-speaking much better. Aside from being a language tutor, I am also a political science researcher and a freelance interpreter, both of which require excellent linguistic skills.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Nenne uns eine Persönlichkeit, egal ob lebend, historisch oder fiktiv, die für Dich die chinesische Kultur am besten repräsentiert!
Pei — For me, the best presenter of Chinese culture is not Confucius but Laozi. As the founder of Taoism, Laozi had the pioneering vision of universe and existence, which exerted unprecedented but underrated influences to the people after him. His thoughts, just like the Chinese languages, including Mandarin, appear confusing and vague at first sight. Once into it, one may find it comprehensive, systematic, and beautiful!
QUESTION 03 | 08
Gibt es im Chinesischen, ein Wort, einen Ausdruck, eine Tradition oder eine typische Verhaltensweise, die Dich ganz besonders beeindruckt oder amüsiert?
Pei — I love the Chinese character "囧." Because of its unique shape, it means "window" in the dictionary. However, Chinese netizens now use it to express that someone has awkward feelings because it also looks like a face a man would make when he feels awkward.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Warum ist es Deiner Meinung nach so wichtig, diese Sprache zu beherrschen (sei es in Bezug auf Schule / Studium, Beruf oder aus persönlichen Gründen)?
Pei — The booming economy in China is only one of the reasons to study Mandarin. I think language learning is a great opportunity to learn about a different culture and other ways of thinking. For Europeans, learning and mastering Mandarin is such a challenging but rewarding task.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Worin liegt die besondere Schwierigkeit, wenn es darum geht, chinesisch zu lernen ?
Pei — Based on my personal observation, there are two most distinguished difficulties in learning Mandarin for my students. The first is to memorize the written characters, which have nothing to do with their pronunciations. The second is to learn how to combine different characters to form a "word." For example, "奶" is milk, but "奶奶" means grandma, and "奶瓶" means milk bottle.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Gibt es im Zusammenhang mit dieser Sprache eine Anekdote aus Deinem Berufsleben oder Deiner Schulzeit, von der Du uns erzählen möchtest?
Pei — In Chinese, when "East (东)" and "West (西)" can be combined and used to refer to lifeless things, i.e., "东西" = "lifeless things." When I told that to a student, he immediately said, "我们都不是东西。" (" neither of us is EastWest.") I laughed so hard because "不是东西" is quite an insult in Mandarin, similar to "you are such a pig" in English. It is only used when you want to say that somebody is inhumane.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Hilf uns, Dich ein wenig besser kennenzulernen, und erzähle uns ein wenig mehr über Deine bisherigen Reisen und/oder Auslandsaufenthalte.
Pei — This is a detailed introduction I wrote about myself in the advertisement on Superprof. "Born and grew up in China, I started teaching Chinese to exchanged foreign students for a part-time job at the university when I studied in Beijing. I moved to Singapore to get my master degree in International Relations, where I worked full-time in a consultancy and at the National University of Singapore as a researcher. During my time of study and work in Singapore, I continued teaching people interested in Chinese learning, just because to me it's so much fun to be able to help others and present my own culture via language teaching. I am currently doing my Ph.D. at FU, Berlin, and I am looking forward to helping more that are interested in Chinese learning."
QUESTION 08 | 08
Kurz und knapp: Was macht aus Dir einen Superprof?
Pei — I am detailed oriented. I pay great attention to what each of my students wants from Mandarin learning and what type of learners they are. My goal in teaching Mandarin is not to make every student speak "perfect" Mandarin. The most important thing for them is to enjoy this challenging yet rewarding process, so that in the end, Mandarin, together with Chinese culture, will be an interesting chapter and part of their personal memories in the running of time.
