I am a qualified Chinese teacher with 23 years of teaching experience in various secondary schools in China. At the moment I am teaching students of different levels, ages and backgrounds. There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing the achievements of my students in the process of learning a new language, it is like the construction of a building. My strength of teaching is to encourage students to engage in speaking and listening by experimenting with fun activities on words, studying grammar and exploring culture.
