I have been teaching Mandarin Chinese since 2014 with a unique method called TPR, i.e. Total Physical Response. In the class, you will learn to understand and speak the language through your senses, like a child learning the mother tongue. This is the most natural way for us to learn any language, through seeing, touching, smelling, listening, even tasting! There are many games and fun activities in my lessons that would engage you to speak and eventually enable you to communicate with native speakers at ease! I encourage my students (age 5-80) to speak shamelessly and laugh with me.
About Shunyu H.

I like to infuse games, activities and music in my classroom. I hope that you feel relaxed and confident at the end of the lesson and won’t be afraid to speak the new language with native speakers. As a musician, photographer and a mother, I will try to figure out what’s the best way for YOU to learn Chinese. Everyone learns differently, you will find your way.

Shunyu is amazing! She puts in so much energy and care into lesson planning, and has really supported me to focus on the exact material I want to be learning. She is very patient and thorough, and makes learning fun! I am so grateful and feel very lucky to have found Shunyu. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn Cantonese or Mandarin.

Shunyu is wonderful, energetic teacher that really cares about her students. She is very attentive, positive, innovative and great in communication. Learning any language virtually is a challenge, Shunyu makes it work and makes it fun. Our son really enjoys the classes and asks for more,

Both of our sons loved their first class. Shunyu is fun and enthusiastic. They feel as if they’ve known her for a long time. They’re looking forward to their next class!
