Finding a Chinese tutor can be a lot harder than it seems but if you put good time and effort into the search you’ll find someone perfect in no time. You want and need to find the best teacher for you. Before you start your search you first have to define certain things. For that, you can ask yourself the following questions. What kind of tutor would I like to work with? How much experience do I want my tutor to have? What are my goals for learning Chinese? Finally, you will need to figure out what is your budget for Chinese tutoring. Once you have all these questions answered you can start searching for a tutor. On Superprof you can find useful information on every tutor’s profile. Each tutor’s profile will have details about many things. You can read about their background, their teaching methodologies, the subjects and levels they teach at, their rates, and the place where they rather the lessons be held. One of the most important parts about choosing a language tutor is to make sure they know how to teach for the level you’re at. You must find a tutor who is familiarized with teaching to someone with your skillset and with your goals. Whether you are at the beginner, intermediate, or advanced levels, or if you want to learn specifically writing, reading, speaking, or everything. Once you have determined what is it you need, then you can go through your options to filter out those private tutors who don’t meet your needs. Keep in mind that Chinese lessons with a private tutor in Chicago can be costing between $20 and $40 per hour.
Do you want to learn Chinese but are hesitant because you’re afraid you won’t be up for the task? Continue reading and find some fun facts about Chinese that might help you make up your mind. Chinese is the official language of China, therefore, there are about 1.2 billion people (or approximately 16% of the world's population) who speak a variety of Chinese as their first language, making it the number one most spoken language in the world. Keep in mind that the Chinese economy is one of the most powerful in the world, which means that there are thousands of markets and job opportunities available for people who speak the language. If you wouldn’t fancy living in China, not to worry, learning Chinese doesn’t necessarily mean that there will only be jobs available for you in China. Learning Chinese can open many doors of opportunities for you all around the world, and definitely, in your hometown. As you might already know, the Chinese economy is powerful, which means there are many companies and markets in the world closing or wanting to close deals with Chinese companies. This implies that the market for people who know the language is wide open and you can find an amazing job if you add this one particular and amazing skill to your CV.
Learning Chinese will help you in the job market and it will open many opportunities for you in the future, but this doesn’t mean that learning this language will be easy. Chinese is a complicated language for anyone who wants to start learning it and it’s best if you know a little about some of the challenges you’ll face. Chinese has more than 50,000 characters, of which an educated person is supposed to know about 8,000. On the other hand, Chinese is the combination of hundreds of different languages. Even though the writing is the same across the country, there are many different dialects across different regions. Most people learn Mandarin, which includes Standard Chinese, Pekingese, Sichuanese, but there are many others like Wu that include Shanghainese, Suzhounese, and Wenzhounese, and so on. Another big challenge is that the writing system is complicated and nothing compared to our alphabet and speech structure. Learning to write in Chinese will rewire your brain completely and will give you amazing results as you will learn to communicate better.
There are many benefits, as was mentioned above, to learning Chinese. It’s a language that is highly useful in today’s job market. If you know Chinese you can easily find a job in any market where they are looking for people to put them in contact with a Chinese market. Companies nowadays look for people who speak Chinese because making business with China is now a priority to many businesses. So, having Chinese listed as one of your skills in your CV will give you a huge advantage, even in places where the language is not even part of the required or bonus skills. People will see that you know the language and immediately see value in you. Other benefits relate to your brain activity and memory skills. As we said, Chinese will rewire your entire brain as you improve in communications, problem-solving, memory, and many other skills. You’ll become a better communicator because as you learn a language you will have to find the tools to express yourself in a way you’ve never done before which will indirectly make you better at communicating in your own language too. You’ll become a problem solver because learning a new language forces you to think outside the box and to see things from a different perspective, both of which are skills of a professional problem solver. Finally, and most importantly, you will improve your memory skills. While you learn 50,000 Chinese characters you will put your hypothalamus ― the part of your brain in charge of memory ― to work. Exercising your memory is key for many things in the present and it will also help you decrease the possibility of certain memory-related diseases in the future.
