Starting with an excited "hi" here to begin your Chinese study. You can call me Linda as your preference or Yuchen as you like (choose the latter means you are ready for it!)
I have been living in Sydney for 7 years and has 4 years teaching experiences (teaching English) to various overseas students, so I am thinking to try to make the maximise use of my mother language. Graduated from USYD (Master of Education) and WSU (Master of Translation and Interpreting English to Mandarin) helped me build a great rapport with languages.
If you think learning Chinese is hard, then probably you are right. However, once you get the best way to learn, things become easier. I will help you to find the connection between English and Chinese, mark your mother language as your strong helper to study Chinese.
Wish to see you somewhere.
"Be brave to talk" is always considered as the most essential way!
As long as you can. Learning a second language can be as easy as you can once you have the ambition to study.
