I have many students in Xi’an, and I also have many students around the world. I use Skype to teach them.
If you would like to study with me, I can design a course for you, or I can help you with a course that you are doing somewhere else. You can choose a text book, or design your own course. I can help you in anyway that you want.

I live in Xi’an and teach Chinese. I have many foreign students who attend universities or teach English in Xi’an.I also use Skype to teach students all over the world.
The lessons can be anything that you like, there is no set work that has to be completed. The student can work at their own pace. If you are already studying Chinese at school or uni, I can help with your studies. When learning a language it is essential to have someone to talk to in that language. I would love to hear from anyone interested in learning Chinese, why not have a go?
