Coach Jing X
Hi everyone, I am Jing from China. After I graduated from college, I started to teach Chinese as a second language. I’ve taught learners from all over the world, from age 3 to 55 years old.
Ages I Teach:
7-12 years old / 13-18 years old / adults
I like to use the communicative approach to teach. I want my learners to try to speak the target language from the beginning of their Chinese learning journey. When I was a student, I hated boring and dull classes. Since then I made up my mind to become an interesting teacher, and to let my learners enjoy the learning experience. I always take a lot of time to prepare my lessons, usually more time than the actual session time! I think I have achieved what I promised myself—to become an interesting coach and to let my learners enjoy my sessions!
Master of Educational Science and Technology, University of Twente. I also hold a Certificate for Teachers of Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages. I participated in the Confucius institute training of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language.
From 2011 to 2014, I taught Chinese as a second language in Thailand. In 2014, I joined VivaLing as a Chinese coach, until now I’ve taught more that 2,000 online sessions and still counting.
Languages I Speak:
Mandarin Chinese (Mother tongue), English (C1), Dutch (A2)
Learning different languages and cultures, classical Chinese culture, travel, cooking

A fun fact about me!:
Even though I am over thirty now, I have a young soul. That keeps me young.
