Hi, I'm Aimee from Beijing. I've been teaching Chinese for more than 8 years after I graduated from The Capital Normal University. My students are age from 3 to 60s, while more than 50 percent are staffs who work for international enterprises and embassies. I was regarded as a strict teacher by my students, but they also say they are enjoyed because learning Chinese with me is easy and entertaining. Besides learning the language, we also talk about culture differences, history, movies, art exhibitions, music.....So proud of them when they can share experience and express their opinions in Chinese. Chinese language is not so difficult as you've been told, just enjoy it.
