I am a Chinese, living in Dewsbury. I graduated from University of Sussex. My major was media and culture studies. I am an one to one mandarin tutor in an internet school. My opinion about language learning is that the culture experiencing is the key. Learning mandarin is not only about to learn how to speak. but also to know our great cultures. I am a very passion and positive girl, love singing, dancing and I play very traditional Chinese instrument called Yangqin. what's more, I love cooking, training the calligraphic art.
As an volunteer of mandarin teacher and arts teacher in China for about 4 years, since I graduated from University of Sussex, I joined in Language house, and became an one to one mandarin tutor.
In my opinion, language learning is not only about the language, but also to experience the Chinese history and cultures. For instance, in China, everyone knows that "how are you" is not the only way to say HI, for most of Chinese people, "chi le ma?" ( in English means 'have you eaten?' ) is the most common way to greeting somebody. This is because during the time between 1959 to 1961 in China, our leader Mao and our people went through the agonies of war and famine. Many people die of starvation, we call it the worst famine in the history of China. Because of every one was looking for food all the time, and every one was hoping that they won't die because of the hunger, so when people saw each other, they wanted to know if you have enough food to eat or not, and until now, this special greeting style is still using in everywhere in China.
