Dàjiā hǎo,

I have been absent on social media lately because I have been doing the Literature Review for my MA thesis related to online teaching. Wish me luck! 加油,Peggy! In the meantime, I still provide private tutor service online. Hopefully soon, I will be able to produce a new YouTube lesson. For now, please follow me on here, Twitter or my Facebook page. :)

Happy Learning, 

Peggy Lee

After 6 long months, I finally uploaded a new Chinese video lesson. But this time is different. The video is produced with 4K quality my baby GH4...still learning to properly use the camera though. Hope you all enjoy the lesson! :)   


The Aussie Escape - not only..., but Mandarin 

Dàjiā hǎo! :) This Vlog lesson is divided into two parts: Part I 0:01 and Part II 5:05. In this lesson, we will learn how to say some of the most well-known tourist sites in Sydney Australia in Mandarin. Moreover, we will learn to use "correlative conjunction," that is the sentence pattern: not only..., but also... to describe these attractions in Mandarin. Enjoy!
