Academic Scholar

Hello fellow learners. I moved to England at age 10, where I started learning English and ever since then I have been fascinated with languages. My greatest accomplishment was getting an academic scholarship to Wellington College. I am currently working on a Chinese course called Easy Peasy Mandarin. I would be extremely grateful if you took the time to support it and help me improve it.
