I think for anything practice makes perfect, so for my lessons I would prioritise that the language is practiced orally for at least 20minutes each lesson.
Born in Oxford, my parents sent me to primary school in China for 2 years in order to perfect my Chinese. I also speak Chinese at home so I am confident with speaking, reading and writing basic vocabulary (up to GCSE).
The £20 includes the travel fee as I am a student on a budget! I also think that teaching languages requires a longer time to prepare each lesson and I am very fluent in Chinese with perfect pronunciation so charging the fee that I am charging is justifiable.
