I was born and brought up in China and speak standard Chinese.
While I was studying in Shanghai International Studies University, I was selected to be a broadcaster of campus radio station of my university because my Chinese pronunciation was standard and there was no accent in my pronunciation.
In China, I also had a test by Mandarin Training and Testing Authority and got an officially recognized certificate showing my mandarin score was 90.5, which is good enough to be a broadcaster.
After I got my bachelor’s degree and graduated in 2000 from the Department of Journalism and Communication in Shanghai International Studies University, one of the most prestigious universities in China, I had been a professional teacher for 11 years until I came to America last December.
In my 11-year career of teaching, I taught some foreign learners and helped them successfully fulfill their plan of passing HSK, the Chinese Proficiency Test, a national standardized test to assess the Chinese language proficiency of non-native speakers.
Now in Florida, I have been teaching a few American students and businessmen since I got a valid Social Security Number and Employment Authorization Card issued by the USA.
