Meet Your New English Teacher: Jia Li

Hi everyone,

My name is Jia Li and I am from the United States.  English is my native language, but I also speak Mandarin Chinese and Spanish to intermediate and advanced fluency.

My passion is in learning languages and helping others learn languages, too.  And today, I want to help you learn and get better in English.

I started learning Mandarin Chinese six years ago at the age of 10, where I took 2 years of classes with a class instructor and then studied for 3 years on my own, online.  Now, I have 2 amazing online Chinese tutors who help me practice and I am constantly learning new things.  It has been a constant journey, and I can’t wait to use what I know and what I have experienced to help you learn English.

In October 2017, I started seriously studying Spanish.  My dad is from Venezuela, a country in South America, so Spanish was his first language.  However, he didn’t teach me how to speak it as a baby, but I heard it all the time being spoken by him and my family members.  So last year, I decided that I wanted to learn more Spanish and speak it confidently like my family.

On my Instagram, I am always posting my language studies and the challenges that I do, which have been an Arabic study challenge, Portuguese study challenge, and a 5 weeks to fluency Chinese study challenge.

So, are you ready to improve your English? Because I’m ready to help you!
