- Make $10/Hr. Chatting with Chinese Students
If you’re a native English speaker and you’d like to earn some extra cash on your own schedule, chatting with Chinese students on your cell can be a handy — and legitimate — option.
You can break the ice and get chats going by asking about family, movies, what students like to do online, music, sports, fashion. Sharing things about yourself will help spark questions, too, and keep things flowing. (Students are almost always interested in their Tutors, though they may be too shy to say so. Opening up a bit about your own life and interests will frequently fuel the chat.)
If a student mispronounces or misuses a word or a phrase, you can gently correct her when she finishes her thought or when there’s a pause in the conversation. If she already knows the basics, you can find out what topics or themes she’s interested in and focus on those.
