Bio

As an experienced Mandarin Chinese teacher, I teach Chinese beginner learners who want to communicate with native Chinese speakers with confidence, within their first 30 lessons, via the Comprehensible Input teaching methodology.

 

  • I use 90% of the target language starting from the first lesson

  • I target most high frequency vocabulary so you can use them daily 

  • I help you internalize the content through personalized questions and answers 

  • I provide meaningful, fun and culturally related input
