Hi there 👋
Welcome to Elementary Chinese. I’m Kwadwo! I’ve lived in China for 11 years. I help expats living in China learn the everyday Chinese they need, so they can communicate what they want!
More importantly, I’ve been where you are at now. Chinese isn’t easy, and working here in China 40 *ahem* 55 hours a week, there’s not enough time in the day to get to a class!
But, stop. You don’t need a class to get good at Mandarin. You need Elementary Chinese.

The Great Firewall of China
Want to use the VPN I use for a stable, quick connection in China? I depend on it to upload more than six videos a week and live-stream on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. And here’s my second choice for a VPN. Plus, when you download from either link, they share some of the cost with me, so I can keep creating the videos you love.
