Nǐ hǎo dear students!

My name is Sarah. My husband and I are both qualified English teachers.

Almost seven years we lived, traveled and taught English in China. For one year we lived in Changchun, Jilin province. We liked our life there because we found that people in the north east of China were educated and very sincere. Changchun is a big industrial city, unfortunately development brought pollution with it. But we escaped the pollution when we traveled to Harbin in the middle of winter. It was very cold there but the snow was very white unlike Changchun. The sculptures and houses were made from ice and snow. I wish you could travel to Harbin in winter too.

Our next stop in China was a small city called Cixi. It is known for its longest in the world over the water bridge which connects Ningbo and Hangzhou with Chinese metropolis Shanghai. The city was small but the people of Cixi had big hearts. Sarah and I made friends with many students there. After the 4 years in Cixi in 2012 we went to the south west of China and began teaching English in Kunming. While in Kunming we visited Dali and Lijiang. The two cities are rich in history and natural beauty. Dali is home to Bai and Yi minorities. We took a two hour ferry ride on the Erhai lake and enjoyed the scenery of Cangshan mountains and the lake from the cable car. We explored the cobbled streets of Lijiang and Shuhe old towns, took pictures of old wooden buildings, clear streams and snow capped Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Under the rain we watched "Impression Lijiang" - a cultural show demonstrating the traditions and lifestyles of Naxi, Yi and Bai minorities.

To make our long story short we fell in love with China and its people, and now we decided to teach English to students from America over skype. 

If you like English and need it for your work, studies or want to learn it as a hobby welcome to our online English classes. We will be happy to be your online tutors. And if you decide to visit America we shall be happy to show you around Florida. 

Zàijiàn!

Sarah
