About Me

 Interactive teaching/learning
 Conversational lessons
 Effectively work with parents (kids lessons)
*Announcement: Vacation on June 18-28*

I am a Mandarin teacher and a native speaker from Taiwan. I specialize in improving spoken Mandarin and lecturing basic to higher intermediate grammar. I have been teaching online for four years and 1.5 years on Verbling. I love the features on this website and will make use of it in our lessons.

My lessons are always student-centered, humorous and fun. The idea of learning a new language is already scary, so why make it so difficult? In the class, the main language will be Mandarin, which I will speak mostly Mandarin and the students will do the same. The beginner lesson will be the same. This will help you start understanding a language without doing the translation process. It helps a lot for the intermediate students when they start learning some grammar or words that are unusually used in their language.

For my background, I was born and raised in Taiwan. I speak Mandarin with the standard Taiwanese accent. Taiwanese accent is considered to be the Southern accent, which we don’t have “er” suffix for many words. I teach Traditional Chinese writing. The lesson with only typing words can be in Simplified or Traditional. The materials I am currently using are 實用視聽華語series、生活華語3、HSK標準課程4下(I have a goal of collecting this series)、快乐汉语series (kids lesson). It can also be any material you suggest.
