animal I understand many foreigners just want to learn Chinese to make traveling or working easier, they do not need to be really fluent in both speaking and writing. So my lesson, my way of teaching is quite different from any other classes you may have heard of or already tried. I want to save your time, help you to be able to communicate in no time. My course is not for those who need to be certified.
