About Michael

I have been teaching Chinese since I was in my second tour in the Peace Corps from 1968 to 1970 (Malaysia). I received my permanent certification from NYS in 1971, and have taught in many schools since then. I started the Chinese programs in quite a number of schools, including several SUNY programs. I've taught at levels from 3rd grade to graduate school. I've taught my two daughters to speak Chinese, and I'm married to a woman from Tianjin, China.

Chinese is, by far, the easiest language to speak in the world, bar none! The grammar is VERY, VERY easy. There are NO ending changes and no past, present, or future ending changes. 95% of the sounds of the language are very easy for Americans to pronounce, and the ones that are a bit unusual I've developed techniques to help students learn. We live and work in NYC's biggest and most exciting "Chinatown" - Flushing, NY. Every lesson you will have opportunities to practice your new language skills with native speakers. After you've learned to carry on basic conversations with Chinese speakers, I will, should you desire, start to teach you to write and, especially important, to recognize, high frequency Chinese characters.

I can teach you to speak Chinese. No doubt about it!!!
