Instructor Introduction
Xiaohong “Kitty” Li was born and grew up in China. After graduating from Xi'an Foreign Language University in 2001, she taught English in Shanghai. In 2004, she became a professional Chinese language instructor, teaching expatriates, preschoolers, and students from elementary to high school. In 2010, she moved to the Austin area where she currently lives with her husband and two children.

Kitty believes “interest” is the key to learning Chinese. She teaches not only vocabulary and grammar, but also aspects of culture. She introduces students to Chinese calligraphy, painting, chess, dance, musical instruments, kids TV shows, songs, and classical books to build up their ability and motivation for continuous learning outside of the classroom.

Learn more than 100 new vocabularies from each of 4 books. Students then should be able to write 100 simplified Chinese Characters.
