HI! I live and teach in Beijing, China. Most of my students are adults. Iīm very much an "outside the box" kind of chick. Iīve designed a series of Business English lessons for use in Beijing, but they are easily adapted to any nationality. Iīm a teacher on a budget, so Iīm always looking for creative ways to use free resources. Celta, 2012.
