English Conversation

Course description:

Learning a language can be frustrating. Students often forget most of what they learn after a week. That's why I personify the course for YOU. I will teach you how to talk / write with passion! That way, you will see long term result and build from a strong foundation.

Teaching approach:

I grew up in Canada and I am a linguist who has learnt many languages. My years of experience learning languages have enabled me to help you get over some difficulties. The most common problem is the lack of repetition. I use a method called irregular repetition (repeating words and phrases in slightly different context). Using my method you are more likely to be able to use what you learn years after taking my class!

Hi, I was born in Hong Kong and I grew up in Vancouver, Canada. As I have been interested in learning new languages since childhood. I have been spending time daily to acquire new languages since high school. I have many tricks to help you learn the basic structure of the language. I believe in personalized language materials, and irregular repetition of expressions and vocabulary. I am now teaching English and French in Hong Kong. I have lived in Beijing for two years for my last job.
