I grew up in Suwon, Korea and lived in Chicago a while. I now live in Austin, Texas, the capital of the live music. I am learning Mandarin Chinese. While living in the United States, I had friends from many different cultural backgrounds. As I teach students from all over the world, my goal is to learn simple greetings from their native language. Learning a language is not just about knowing how to read, write or speak, but to embrace the culture and the history. I think of it as a long journey or a marathon, but while having lots of fun along the way. Just as a journey or a marathon has a destination and a finish line, we do need consistency and endurance as well as short and long-term goals. Everyone is unique - that makes this journey or marathon interesting! Looking forward to meeting you soon!
