HI! I live and teach in Beijing, China. Most of my students are adults.(But also kids) I�ve designed a series of Business English lessons for use in Beijing, but they are easily adapted to any nationality. I�m a teacher on a budget, so I�m always looking for creative ways to use free resources. Celta, 2012.
