My teacher in Linda Mandarin, Lily, hails from China but has been widely exposed to the world (Europe) in terms of cultural awareness, perspectives and knowledge.
It has been a real pleasure learning from her – in mandarin, Chinese culture as well as exchange of viewpoints around social & political aspects.
Instead of typically teaching purely from books, she created materials to suit my needs/pace, making learning all the more practical and enjoyable.
She is also very resourceful e.g., she recommended smart phone applications to input Pinyin. I like to thank Linda Mandarin for persevering with me and letting me learn at my own pace.
