We’ve had quite a few new visitors here lately so I thought I’d reintroduce myself, Elementary Chinese, and what we do.
We’re all about learning real Chinese, communicating, and having fun.
I’ve lived in China for 11 years. Don’t worry guys, I promise it gets better.
I teach everyday Chinese to foreigners here in China. I’ve been teaching other teachers, and non-Chinese adults here in China, how to speak Chinese for the past three years.
Frustrated with Chinese?
Me too. When I was studying in College here in China, I was baffled at the number of textbooks and random Chinese vocabulary I was learning which wasn’t useful to my everyday life.
I’d been studying for years and I had so many useless phrases in my head, yet I still couldn’t confidently take a taxi cab.
Alongside this, I was paying so much money to learn from textbooks all the language that isn’t even used outside in day-to-day life.
I want you to be able to skip over that entire part of the process. No more fake Chinese and random phrases you’ll never retain because you don’t use it in daily life. I teach you to communicate with real Chinese people in the way they’ll understand, so you can have a lot more fun.

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.
