How else can I help you?

Ideally, you should be in Singapore because I can help you best if I can meet up with you.  Most of the time, explanations in person work way better than explanations in writing.

Concept 1: Language Exchange

If you want to learn a language that I know, and you have a language that I want to learn, we can do a “language exchange” or “Sprachtandem” arrangement.  We can arrange to meet up with each other and exchange languages.  This is ideal for foreigners in Singapore who would love to practice / learn Chinese, but could be good for say, a native Malay speaker who wants to learn German or Chinese.  Another benefit is if you want to teach me Vietnamese while I help you improve your English.  Typically, we meet at a cafe and learn this over coffee.  This arrangement is very common in Germany and I had a Sprachtandem when I was there.

Languages offered: English, Mandarin, German

Languages sought: Malay, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Turkish, French

Concept 2: Training / Tutoring

If you want to learn a language I know, but you don’t know a language I want to learn, we can work on a training / tutoring arrangement.  Please write me an email (lokepingbu@gmail.com).  I charge S$50 – S$175 per hour depending on the type of training you need.  I offer this for English, Mandarin and German.  I can do conversation, pronunciation, fluency, grammar, and I can help with general difficulties too.  I can help to prepare you linguistically for a trip to a country that speaks these languages (e.g. exchange program, personal tour).  I am also able to customize a way to help you improve the way you learn the particular language, or diagnose the challenges that you have and offer ways to overcome them.

Note: I DO NOT teach so that you can pass exams more easily, but if you do it my way you will gain interest in the language and hence pass exams without having too much difficulty.

If you are not sure that I am the right person to help, and S$50 – S$175 looks expensive, we can arrange to talk on the phone first.  Write me an email: lokepingbu@gmail.com and we can work that out.😀

I charge this amount because I have charged this before, and I am confident of the benefits I could bring to you!😀

By the way, groups up to 3 are welcome.  I charge S$100 per hour for groups.

Languages offered: English, Mandarin, German

Concept 3:

If you have a language I want to learn, and do not need to learn anything from me, and would like me to pay S$50 – S$175 for it, please write me an email: lokepingbu@gmail.com.  Please provide a link to your website / blog / youtube videos.  If it turns out I’m broke at the time, hey -> we could work together to offer more people the opportunities to learn more languages in Singapore!

Languages sought: Malay, Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Turkish, French
