waveChinese was set up in 2015. We are a start-up based in Xi'an, China. We offer online 1-to-1 Mandarin Chinese classes, and offer our students free advisory assistance when they are in China, including: rent an apartment, teach you how to use Chinese Uber, how to find a local restaurant and so on.
We're a team of very able Mandarin teachers that are enthusiastic and willing make a really unique contribution to our students and the industry.
Mandarin Classes need to be fun, have proper structure and well designed teaching materials. Students need (some) homework to cement memories, and many need a guide to take advantage of the many apps, podcasts and complementary Mandarin materials available.
We recognise that there’s always plenty that can be done to improve — so please get in touch. Your feedback is very welcome!
Some - but far from most - Chinese characters are pictographs. Why? Take our logo as an example; It's from the traditional Chinese character of "學 xué ".
(v.) study, learn; imitate
(n.)school; learning; science; subject of study
Here's the meaning of our logo:
(1) the two x's represent Yin and Yang (opposing forces in nature) over a house (classroom) with a person inside.
(2) The symbols on the left and right side of two x's, represent two hands of the teacher. The teacher is putting knowledge and experience about Yin and Yang into the classroom.
