Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will learn simple words and concepts and form a positive association with the sights and sounds of Mandarin Chinese. This class sets a foundation and desire for future learning.
My native language is English—I became professionally fluent in Mandarin Chinese through more than nine years of intense study that gave me a deep appreciation for the Chinese language and culture. I will pass this appreciation on to your learner in my class! During my year of teaching English and German in Taipei, I simultaneously studied Mandarin, which activated my interest in the language. I chose Mandarin as my language focus while earning a Master's Degree in International Relations and have completed multiple total immersion courses in China. Two of these courses included a language pledge to speak only Mandarin Chinese for four weeks and six weeks straight! My professional work in China has taken me to many Mandarin-speaking places, including Harbin, Beijing, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Kunming, and Taipei. Most importantly, from nearly twenty years of total time and experience working with China, I gained a lifelong love of Mandarin Chinese and I can't wait to share it with your child!
