Hi, my name is Haina. I’m a Beijinger and I have deep emotional ties with this old city. Beijing was the capital for two dynasties with every ancient structure having its special story. That’s also one of the reasons I absorb myself in Chinese history and culture. After graduation, I became a member of Hutong School team and it has been two years since then. As an education coordinator, I will do my best to help you with studying Chinese and if you’d like, I’d be happy to share stories of Beijing as well. Hope to meet you in China and I believe you will fall in love with this country as my colleagues and students do!
Nihao! I am Xiǎo lì (小丽)，I am from Anhui province. I have been a Chinese teacher in Shanghai for 6 .5 years since I graduated from Anhui Nomal University. I majored in teaching Chinese as a second language and have learned the history of the Chinese language, both ancient and modern Chinese. In 6.5 years, I have helped more than 200 students learning Chinese. I really enjoyed the time with my students. In my spare time, I like traveling, cooking and reading .
I was born in YanCheng City, one of the water towns south of the Yangtze river in JiangSu province.
I already live in Shanghai for 10 years and have been engaged in this kind of work for five years. I enjoy it very much! This year, I joined Hutong School and I can say that this school deeply cares about forwarding Chinese culture to foreigners. I am very happy to work here and be a part of that. I firmly believe that one day, we will let all our foreign friends know Chinese culture, Chinese language and make them fall in love with China.

I am from Hubei province in the south of China .In Chinese, Hu means lake, bei means north. Hubei is in the north of Dongting Lake so it derives its name. The province in the south of Donting lake is called Hunan (nan means south),which is the province of Mao Zedong. But in my province we also get a famous hero whose name is Quyuan, a great poet in China, and the dragon boat festival is to commemorate him. I am passionate for teaching Chinese language and culture. My major was Chinese language and literature. I have been in Beijing for more than 6 years. It is a fantastic city with unique culture and hospitable people. Your Beijing experience will leave you thinking of the saying “I came, I saw, I conquered!”
