Hi, this is Katherine. I was born and raised in Hong Kong. Coming to New York 6 years ago allows me to see this melting pot with all different cultures. I like to teach Chinese(Cantonese) because this is mainly my native language and I like the way it sounds colloquially. I believe watching TVB drama helps people to improve Cantonese. I love watching Cantonese movies as well, especially the ones with Stephy Tang and Alex Fong. I learned Mandarin both in Hong Kong and New York for more than 7 years. I love Chinese calligraphy because I like the way it looks and it is like an art to me. My Fuzhouese is fine too since I was born in a Fuzhouese family. Please feel free to speak Fuzhouese to me if that is more comfortable to you! I learned French for one semester and found it pretty hard to pronounce some words. So do not mind my limited conversational French. Learning a new language is definitely not easy, but it really depends on how much practice and effort you put in!  Keep practicing it so you won't forget!

I love to travel. My dream place is to go to Paris, then Britain one day 🙂
