Ni hao (hello)! Welcome to the Chinese class. In the two years in middle school, we will learn Chinese Level 1, using a textbook called Chinese Link (Level 1 Part 1). In the class, students will improve their communicative proficiency in Chinese Mandarin and get familiar with Chinese culture, in a friendly and fun studying environment.

Ni hao (hello)! I originally come from Mainland China. I majored in English and Spanish in a college in China. Before moving to America, I had been teaching English in China. Since I came to the US, I have been teaching Chinese. I have an M.Ed. degree, specializing in Second Lanugage Education, from the University of Minnesota.
I am a native Mandarin speaker, and I am very passionate about teaching languages, especially my mother tongue, Chinese. I believe language-teaching not only brings students the opportunity to appreciate different cultures and arts, but also helps them understand different cultural and political ideologies better, and thus, in a way, I think language-teaching promotes world peace. That's one of the most important reasons why I love teaching languages.
