Chinese Language Tuition

China is recognised as the oldest continuous civilisation in the world and is the world's most populous country with a population of around 1.5 billion. China's economy is one of the world's faster growing and the country is now seen as a superpower, because of its massive population, economy and miltary. As China is involved in so much international trade and business, so the Chinese language is recognised as an increasingly important language in the world. Learning Chinese offers many benefits to both professional and personal development, not least gaining a better understanding of one of the most vibrant cultures in the world.

Chinese is an umbrella language term that encompasses multiple dialects and languages, including Mandarin and Cantonese. Mandarin and Cantonese are written in the same way but are spoken very differently. There are over 80,000 chinese characters but generally only 3,500 are used in conversation. It is regarded as a very logical language. There are no verbs, no plurals, no tenses, no conjugations and no subject-verb agreements.

Mandarin Tuition

Mandarin (or Standard Chinese) is the official and predominant language of China and Taiwan, and one of the official languages of Singapore. Mandarin is shaped and based on the Beijing dialect. It is used as the mother tongue by one fifth of the world's population.

Cantonese Tuition

Cantonese is a variety of Chinese originating from the City of Guangzhou, also known as Canton, and from the surrounding area in Southeastern China. Cantonese is spoken in Hong Kong, Macau, Guangzhou. Most overseas Chinese communities, such as those in the UK and USA, also speak Cantonese because historically Chinese immigrants came from Guangdong.

Tuition with a qualified Chinese teacher at your home in Derby costs from £46.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified Chinese teacher costs from £40.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and Chinese tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced Chinese teachers in Derby, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our Chinese teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a Chinese tutor coming to your home in Derby to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the Chinese tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the Chinese tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the Chinese tutor is required to travel to your home, in Derby. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your Chinese tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your Chinese tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of Chinese tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group Chinese tuition in Derby depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
