Hongzhi is going to be tutoring my two sons in Mandarin Chinese. The first lesson went great. They have studied a little Chinese on their own, and she was able to figure out where they are as far as pronunciation, etc. She went over the numbers 1-10 and then 100 and 1000, and she asked them translate random numbers from English to Chinese and then Chinese to English. She was very warm and enthusiastic, and I think the boys will learn a lot from her. Thank you for the good lesson!

I had no prior Chinese experience when I started lessons with Jim, but I wanted to complete the equivalent of an intro college course in Mandarin so that upon returning to school, I could test out of the intro course and continue with the next level of Chinese. Jim has accommodated the Mandarin textbook that my school uses ('New Practical Chinese Reader'), but has also challenged me with practical Mandarin phrases that he deems useful in daily conversation.
