My Mandarin Experiencepromise

My journey with Mandarin Started in 2007 when I first arrived in Taiwan to teach English.
I decided to immediately start learning Chinese for
3 main reasons.
  • I wanted to understand the world around me.
  • To better teach a foreign langauge, I should have the  experience of learning one.
  • It's really cool making funny sounds that people understand and reading weird characters !!
So I started to study....
  • 2007 - 2008    2 x 74 hour group classes.
  • 2007 - 2010    about 100 hours of language exchange and private tutoring.
  • 2007 - 2012    at least 2 - 10 hours of self study every week.
  • 2010 - 2011    300 hours of group and private class.
  • 2011                about 50 hours teaching basic Chinese.
  • 2012                300 hours of group class.
  • 2013                100 hours of group class
    • TOTAL: approx  1250 hours.
And I wrote 10 SCTOP tests (including pilot tests) and passed...
  •  TOP Basic on 1 November 2008
  •  TOP Learner on 6 November 2010
  •  TOP Superior on 5 May 2012
  • sctop certificate

My Promise  

:(   Obviously I am not a native speaker of Mandarin Chinese, therefore I cannot and will not promise that all my material is 100% flawless in grammar and spelling.

:)   I can promise that people will understand you when you use my stuff!
All words and sentences were taken from real life situations where I used them.
Most has been checked by native speakers.
