Hello! I’m Christine Laoshi (teacher). I am originally from Taiwan and have been living in the US since 2010. I received my doctoral degree in Foreign language and ESL Education from the University of Iowa with focus on teaching Chinese as a foreign language and technology-enhanced language learning. Since learning foreign languages has been my life-long passion, I learned French and German in college and am learning Korean right now. (I love to watch K-pops!) I enjoy passing on my passion for foreign languages to my students and sharing with them those ups-and-downs in the process of achieving excellence in a foreign language. I am very supportive and attentive. I pay attention to students’ individual learning styles and needs. I am also silly and easy going. When you learn with me, you and I are a team. We will discuss and set goals together. Then, we are going to have fun exploring this wonder language and its culture as well as work hard to achieve our goals!
