About me

Hello, everyone. I became a Lang-8 user years ago and left here for a long while because I was very busy. I now come back with a great passion for learning languages.
I have a bunch of experiences of teaching non-native spearkers Mandarin. For example, I was one of the volunteers for Chinese Bridge Competition (Held by Hanban) which is a Chinese language proficiency competition for college students from all over the world.
I met a lot of talented people on Lang-8 and I think it is a great joy to share ideas with them in different languages.
Hope to be your genuine friend here.
