I am a Chinese American woman born in Taipei, Taiwan where the the main dialect spoken is Mandarin Chinese. I spoke this language in my household until college. It was my first language, and English is my second- although, I do speak perfect English with no accent as I'm 100% bilingual. I was educated in reading and writing the Chinese language in weekend schools since I was 10 years old. I also took Chinese in college to perfect my reading and writing (as my speaking skills far exceeded the reading/writing). Furthermore, I travel back to my native country of Taiwan and to Mainland China annually to visit relatives. Currently, I teach Mandarin Chinese to young children privately in San Diego. I have been doing so for over 5 years using a program I developed with materials from both Taiwan and China. If you should need any additional information or would like me to speak in Mandarin on a video clip, please let me know.
