Who is the course for?

This course is for learners who are roughly at HSK level 4. As most learners feel "stuck" at this stage for a longer period, or think what they have learned is all over the place.

But it's perfectly ok if you didn't learn in a linear order. Simply  book a free language assessment with me.

Jun Wu

Hi friends, I'm Jun. I've been teaching Chinese language and culture for over a decade, and hold a B.A. in Teaching Mandarin as a Second Language, and a M.Ed in Curriculum Design and Teaching Methodology.

As a life-long language learner myself, I know what it’s like to feel stuck and lost when learning a second language. Now after having lived and taught in three different countries to students of all levels and ages, from elementary school to university courses, I'm fascinated not only by the differences among cultures, but how much we share in common. 

Together, we will make this learning process fun while making meaningful connections along the way!
