My name is Osmond, I am a 74 year old retired Brazilian who, after a long research on the internet, discovered this course; and, who decided to add it to his other life projects.
my friends asked me - Why did you prefer to take a Chinese Course
created by a Frenchman in France in English instead of one in your
native language (Portuguese) done by a Chinese in Brazil? Here we
have many of them very good and for free!
gave them two answers:
only a foreigner knows exactly what a foreigner's difficulties are.
The Chinese language is so different from our Roman language that
teaching needs a special look by those who are not native speakers,
about the difficulties to be encountered.
teaching the Chinese language is not easy. It takes a lot of
experience and knowledge, theory and practice (which Mr. Tianxiang
has a lot). I am talking with the experience of someone who was also
a teacher (in my areas of expertise - IT and Finance).
we speak in my country - a good choice, so enjoy it ....
