Hey guys! 你们好I am Niki:)我叫Niki。 I come from Shanghai,China.我来自中国上海。 I spent 4 years learning Teaching Chinese as foreign language in university. In year 2014, I came to work as a professor in Croatia directly after my graduation. I speak perfect English and a bit of Croatian. I love learning new languages and teaching as well. That is why I came to verbling.com to share my experience and let more people experience the beauty of Chinese language.
Why did I become a teacher on verbling.com:
I firmly believe that the motivation for learning anything new is FUN, this way of teaching is more up dated in the age of technology, since my classes are all old-school with whiteboard and marker pens. I designed a website with the Dean of my institute and did some experimental class with my Croatian students and turned out that they love it! From then, I found more and more enthusiasm in them because this platform makes everything easier. So in my class there is always games and tons of speaking practice。 But do bear in mind that Chinese is unique because of the beautiful characters, which we call them "汉字". So consider writing as a type of Art. I have made several exercises designed by myself according to my different groups of students. It helps and improves a lot. I would love to share my knowledge and to progress together!
