is my family name, I grew up in Taiwan, but now live in
Battle, East Sussex, England.
I am a Mandarin teacher, having qualified from TLI (Taipei Language
Institute), which is one of the oldest Chinese language schools
in Taiwan. I was trained to be a Mandarin teacher under the supervision
of some extremely experienced teachers at TLI. I have gone on
to gain my own considerable experience.
I have recently been interviewed on BBC Radio.
The discussion was regarding the Goverment investigation of the
possibility of including Mandarin Chinese in the secondary school
curriculum from 2008. The recordings of the interviews can be
found in the News section.
You can see the FAQ
section for some basic information about Chinese languages. For
example, you can learn how the term "Chinese"
can refer to many dialects and languages, rather than just Cantonese
