Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

 

How to learn to speak Chinese?

It can be hard to know where to start when you're first learning to speak Chinese. A private tutor can help you assess your current level and put together a plan based on your personal goals. Whether you want to work towards business or academic Chinese or you're aiming to become fluent in conversational Chinese, Preply will help you find an online tutor suited to your needs and targets. You can arrange lessons as frequently as you like and based around your own schedule to make it easier to keep up.
 

How to speak Chinese fluently?

Speaking Chinese fluently requires lots of practice. It can be a particularly difficult language for English-speakers to learn because of the different pronunciations but the more conversations you have, the more comfortable you'll become. A conversational Chinese tutor can help you fill in any gaps in your knowledge, including colloquial expressions that you might not find in dictionaries and textbooks and sounds you might not have encountered before.
 

How to learn to speak Chinese at home?

You don't have to go to a class to learn Chinese - you can get all the same benefits with an online Chinese tutor. Preply allows you to browse the profiles of lots of different tutors to find one with the right experience, qualifications and hourly rate for you. You can arrange regular lessons to get your learning started and you can supplement your sessions with apps and online resources. You can also find Chinese shows and music online to help you get familiar with the language.
 

How to improve my Chinese accent?

When it comes to conversational Chinese, improving your accent is key to speaking fluently and naturally. It can help to listen to native speakers, whether that's through conversation or via media such as films and television shows. Working 1-2-1 with a conversational Chinese tutor is a great way to improve your accent by getting real-time feedback while also having the chance to listen to correct examples. You can also work on any gaps in your knowledge in terms of letters and pronunciation.
 

How to get more confident at speaking Chinese?

If you're new to learning Chinese, it can seem daunting to speak in front of others. However, confidence comes with practice so it's important to make sure shyness doesn't hold you back! Working 1-2-1 with a tutor can be a great way to develop your confidence and also gives you the chance to improve your knowledge and experience. You can arrange lessons as regularly as you like so you get lots of practice and don't risk your skills getting rusty between classes.
