How do you organize your classes?

For children, I try to organise something students are interested in, they usually tell us.

What’s your best language learning tip?

Learn the whole sentence, not word by word only.


Why do you like working at Bonjour Toowoomba?

I can make some pocket money, and can advocate for my culture - which I am very proud of.


Could you share some information about your country?

It is a big and complicated country, if anyone says "I know China very well", do not believe them. However, there are some common traits in Chinese people:

People care about their children and education so much.

People are very diligent in working and studying.

People are more cooperative to the greater benefit of a group when they are required to.
