What Do I Teach?
My name is Jonathan Neris (聶君浩). Born in the United States, but raised in China and Hong Kong in a Spanish-speaking family, I am native English, Mandarin, and Spanish teacher, and also proficient in French, Cantonese, Latin, and Classical Chinese. My classes mostly focus teaching you how to speak Mandarin Chinese in a fun and innovative way without using traditional textbooks, making sure that you learn to speak and understand Mandarin Chinese just as a native Mandarin speaker would.
