I’m your host, Po Tim King.
I help parents and educators teach Chinese at home. I provide real-life practical tips, strategies, and a wealth of Chinese resources/printables. Helping my students create a well-balanced, enjoyable bilingual life-style.
I am a native-Cantonese speaker. But that doesn't mean it was always sweet and easy to raise my four young children as bilinguals.
Before homeschooling, I was a Chinese teacher in an elementry school immersion program. The school had huge classrooms, co-workers, endless resources, plus any support I needed. But I felt guilt. I was putting all my energy into teaching other children Chinese and not teaching mine. It led me to make one of the most important decision of my life -- teach my own children Chinese at home! I’m very grateful I did.
Here is SECRET to raising happy bilingual children eager to learn both languages. Provide a safe and comfortable learning environment at home. Create a consistent family-oriented learning routine. No expensive Chinese classe or tutor can replace human contact and family relationships.
As a blogging homeschooling mother of 4, I’ve helped countless parents/educators.
Since starting this blog over 3000 people have joined my email list.
I have hosted many Live Challenges. All which have helped parents and educators start teaching Chinese at home.
I have created a library of printables, resources, and trainings.
I’ve done all this because I enjoy all the ups and downs of raising and teaching my children. I’m grateful for every opportunity I have to share my knowledge through my blog and courses.
