Is Mandarin Important?
Has this ever happened to you – you proudly say something in Mandarin to your friend. She replies, but you don’t understand her answer. Awkward.
Mandarin Tutors Make Studying Easier
Chinese tuition can help. We know that our students’ fluency in Mandarin is just a matter of time (and effort). How does a rock become smooth? It is by the friction that rounds out all the rough edges, and in the end it becomes smooth. Learning Mandarin is like the smoothing process of the rough rock. Once you identify all the rough edges and smooth them out, being fluent in Mandarin is an easy next step.
Even Americans Have Decided To Hire Mandarin Tutors For Their Children
According to The Economist: “(American) families are enrolling their children in Mandarin-immersion programs that are springing up from California to Maine. They are hiring Mandarin tutors, Skyping with teachers in Beijing and recruiting Chinese-speaking nannies. Some are stocking their playrooms with Disney videos in Mandarin.” Many American families have decided to hire experienced Mandarin tutors.
Mandarin Tutors Can Make Lessons Fun
Learning Mandarin gives us so many perks. One of these would be your new-found ability to access Chinese cinema. Mandarin films range from historically enlightening to light-hearted and humorous.
Chinese Grammar And Vocabulary - Mandarin Tutors Explain How To Easily Improve
Some of us are discouraged from learning Mandarin because we think that it’s too difficult. While there are over 80,000 Chinese characters in the language, the truth is that native speakers use only around 3,500 characters in their daily conversations and written fluency.
Why Learn The Mother Tongue Language?
According to the Dr Goh Keng Swee Report in 1979: “the then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew wrote: The greatest value in the teaching and learning of Chinese is in the transmission of the norms of social or moral behaviour. . . . It would be a tragedy if we were to miss this and concentrate on second language proficiency nearly equal to the first language. Malay children should know their proverbs and their folklore…. For the Indians, the Ramayana and the Mahabaratha provide marvellous and inexhaustible sources of stories…. That they also carry a moral message is the genius of the culture. No child should leave school after 9 years without having the ‘soft-ware’ of his culture programmed into his subconscious.”
Who Speaks Mandarin?
The Census of Population 2010 found that about 47% of Chinese households in Singapore speak Mandarin at home. They also speak Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonese, Hakka and Hainanese – these dialects form about 19% of the home language of Chinese Singaporeans.
Interestingly, according to a study conducted in 1980 by researchers Evangelos Afendras and Eddie Kuo, virtually no ethnic Chinese in Singapore spoke Mandarin as their predominant home language in 1965, at the time of our Independence.
Mandarin Is A Global Language
These days, more than twenty percent of the world’s population speaks Chinese. Mandarin is the mother tongue of over a billion people and is spoken in the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan, Mongolia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and Brunei.
Employers Appreciate Good Mandarin Skills
Having a good grasp of Mandarin may give you an edge when competing for an important career position. Multi-national corporations prefer to hire people who can speak more than one language as well as understand the business culture of more than one country.
When you are proficient in Mandarin, you can better understand your Chinese counterparts, and have a stronger platform on to operate successfully in a Mandarin corporate and cultural context.
People All Over The World Have Hired Their Own Mandarin Tutors
Every year, many students around the world whose mother tongue is not Mandarin are enthusiastically studying it. You can master Mandarin successfully too!
Mandarin Today, In Singapore
Currently, the mother tongue curriculum aims at being more interactive and fun for the student. The objective is to increase interest in languages.
Can My Mandarin Improve?
In school, you raise your hand but the teacher is busy. He is attending to three other students who had put up their hand just before you. The bell rings and class is over. You still don’t understand how to do the homework, and there’s SA next week.
Hiring experienced Mandarin tutors from Best Tutor will help you:
- Write to suit purpose, audience and context in a way that is clear and effective
- Use correct grammar, spelling and punctuation
- Understand implied meaning
- Identify key messages, main ideas and details in a variety of spoken and written texts
- Infer and draw conclusions
You need to demonstrate mastery of these (and more), in order to do well in the major national exams administered by the Ministry of Education.

Signs That You Need Tuition
Hire Qualified Tutors So That Your Grades Can Improve
Students don’t fall behind all at once. It happens a little every day
Have any of these happened?
- You listen carefully in school, but some concepts are just impossible to grasp. And you are too shy to ask your school teacher
- Your daughter’s grades keep falling despite her best efforts
- Your son’s teacher has sent you messages that he has not been handing in his homework
- Your teacher told you “read more widely”. You are keen to do this, but how and where do you start?
- You are losing confidence, and are very anxious about tests
- Out of frustration, you have told your son, “If only you would try, I am sure that you can do well.”
- You studied all the materials in the text book, but the exam question was about something that wasn’t in the book
- You understand the exam question, and the content in your text book. But it’s so hard to apply what you’ve learnt
- You have enrolled at tuition or enrichment centres, and you are still not able to cope with exam questions
- Some mornings, you wake up feeling defeated and are dreading another day of school
- Your daughter’s homework grades are generally good. But almost always, her CA and SA grades are disappointing
- When you hand in homework, there are many errors even though the topics were already covered in class
- You wonder if you have picked up bad study habits, and why your classmates are always doing better than you
- You want to know why your son does not care about school work, and what you can do about it
When Do You Need Tuition?
Qualified tutors should be called upon when a student finds that the attention and support of a classroom teacher no longer meets their individual learning needs. This can be a result of many factors including:
- Curriculum progression
- Time constraints
- Individual learning difficulties
- Miscommunication between teacher and student
Engage Reliable Tutors
Bring in reliable tutors because you know that when your child says “I don’t care”, he really means “I am too scared to care because then I might fail.”
