Chinese language and culture

What is Pinyin?
Hanyu Pinyin, in short Pinyin, is the official romanization system for standard Mandarin Chinese. It can be used to teach Mandarin without using Chinese characters. In 1950 the Pinyin system was developed by a group of Chinese linguists, they based it on earlier forms of romanizations of Chinese. Flowently tutors will use Pinyin for teaching Mandarin.

What can I learn in a Mandarin course?
In a 30-hour Mandarin course you will learn all the basic language situations such as: introducing, meeting, greeting, simple conversations about family and work, shopping and traveling. Intercultural awareness can be part of the language course as well, ask your Chinese tutor about the options!

What does a Mandarin course cost?
With a 30-hour course you can learn the very basics of Mandarin. You can use the 30-hour course for any aspect of the language. Would you like to try learning the Mandarin language first? If so, you can start with a single session or a 10-hour discount package as well.

I am extremely happy with the classes from Fluently. It allowed me to get up to speed and already say few words in Dutch. I like their practical method to just dive into the language! Highly recommended!

I always look forward to my tutoring sessions with Cecile. I feel like I am being challenged just enough so that my mind struggles to incorporate the lesson. I can feel the learning happening! I also feel like the materials that we are using and the course of study that we are pursuing will get me where I want to be in terms of competence. My family and I are moving to the Netherlands in a year and I am excited to see how well I progress during that time.

I enjoyed the first session with Ingrid very much. I thought that the time went by very quickly (this means I enjoyed it...!) & I felt comfortable speaking Dutch. I am looking forward to more sessions in order to build my confidence

My family is learning Dutch with Cecile through Flowently. I am dazzled with the experience. My daughters are having a wonderful time, as Cecile plants and nurtures important seeds of language acquisition ahead of a move to Amsterdam next summer. My husband and I each take lessons as well. I entered the experience as the most language-phobic student. Working with Cecile shifted those anxieties into a place of real joy in the process of learning a remarkable and fun new language.

Cecile Wijne is an excellent tutor. I am very satisfied with my Dutch classes with her. She has great experience and adjusts learning programs to students' needs. I would totally recommend her as a teacher.
