Hi there, I am Tiana. It stands for Talented, Inspiring, Amazing, Natural, and Astounding. I am a very energetic and fun young lady who comes from a gorgeous city that is called 羊yáng城chéng, which in Chinese would be translated as Ram City. In here you can find some of the most delicious food in all of China and in the world.
I am also a huge language lover. I am currently also learning Japanese, Korean and a little bit of Spanish, so I totally understand the difficulties you may encounter when starting to learn a new language. At the same time, learning a new language can be fun and thrilling. One phrase in Chinese that fits perfectly when it comes to learning something is 共gòng 勉miǎn, which means “let’s study hard and move forward together”. I will do my best to help you with your Chinese learning and hopefully make it fun and relaxing at the same time.
In order to improve your Chinese, here are a couple of learning tips that I would like to share with you:
First one is to try to speak as much Chinese as you can during class. This is the time! My second advice is that you should not be afraid of making mistakes. The more mistakes you make, the bigger progress you will make. Even though this is an old saying, it always works. My third advice is to try to interact with the consultants as much as you can during Chinese class but also outside of class. Students who interact with native speakers more frequently out of their own initiative will improve their Chinese much faster than those who do less, since the former ones create more opportunities to practice speaking for themselves. I hope all of this helps, and if you follow this advice, you will be able to achieve all your goals^^ Hey! It’s time to start your Chinese Journey with Tiana. Let’s have fun!
