Hi, my name is Shunning HAN (韩顺宁). You can call me Stella. I am a Mandarin and English teacher with more than five years' teaching experience. I completed my bachelor studies in English Language Education in Hong Kong. In addition, I pursued my master’s degree in English Linguistics at University of Zurich. My research interest is bilingualism and multilingualism. Therefore, I fully understand the learning difficulties of students (especially English speakers) who learn Mandarin as a second language from linguistics perspectives.
My students are from various age groups (4-50 years old) as well as different levels, including beginners, YCT/HSK exam takers and business Chinese learners, there is one thing always consistent in my teaching: I always endeavour to create a student-centered learning environment. As a teacher, my role is to tailor make materials and activities that help you learn more effectively. As a student, you are expected to speak as much Mandarin as you can in and outside of the class. Don’t be afraid of making any mistakes! I will be very patient and always willing to help you learn better.
I’m really passionate for language teaching. Although online teaching differs from classroom teaching, my expertise in technology can help you maximize learning efficiency. The key of language learning is: “use it, or lose it.” Why don’t you start to practice it now? Join my class and learn Mandarin in a way that suits you the best!
