KEATS TEAM

FENG XUE

Co-founder

Mrs. Xue Feng used to be a doctor at Yunnan Provincial People’s Hospital. She realized that she was so passionate about teaching Chinese language to foreigners. In 2004, she co-founded Keats School with Zier Liu. Over the past decade, she has helped Keats transform into one of the top Mandarin schools in China in terms of teaching quality and operation scale. Mrs. Xue laid solid foundation for Keats teaching methodology. With a 40% rate of returning students, she has successfully helped many students improve their language skills and reach their study and career goals. Mrs. Xue loves Chinese traditional culture, and is good at Chinese calligraphy, Chinese seal cutting, Chinese style writing and Chinese cooking.

Zier Liu

Co-founder

Zier was born and raised in China, and is now settled in the city of Kunming. She spent four years living in America where she completed a Bachelor of Management Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In 2004, Zier co-founded the Keats Chinese Language School in Kunming. Being a Chinese language teacher herself, Zier has developed a systematic teaching methodology suited to Westerners of all cultural backgrounds. Her passion for teaching Chinese means she is continually seeking out ways to make acquiring the language easier and more interesting. Not only does she focus on language form, she also helps students understand Chinese culture and Chinese thinking. This is what makes Keats stand out from other Chinese language schools, and has been recognized as such with the many awards her school has received.

Lei Fu

School Director

Fulei was born and raised in Jiangxi province, China. After graduating from university, where she majored in teaching Chinese as a second language and then doing a one year internship in Thailand, she settled in Kunming. She joined the faculty at the Keats School in 2015 as a teacher of Chinese for foreign students. On average each year, she teaches about 70 students of different ages coming from various countries, with different levels of ability in Chinese. In 2017, she took the position as the school’s executive officer, mainly in charge for management, giving guidance to the students to help direct their learning, working with other teachers to improve their teaching ability, and working with the other teachers to develop more practical and effective teaching methods at Keats. Teaching is her passion, and she is looking forward to continuing to work with students learning Chinese at Keats.

Steve testimonial for keats chinese school

Steve | UK

Small Group Chinese Class

I really enjoy coming here because it is like kind of a home for me. It is a great great environment to learn Chinese and meet great people from all over the world. Every one here is extremely friendly. Kunming has a really nice climate. It is a very good mix of modern city and also a lot of historic Chinese culture. Probably got the cleanest air in China and possibly the cleanest water too. I invite you to come.

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

This is my second time coming. Last year, I also came for about 12 weeks. This time I came for 13 weeks. The reason why I particularly want to come to this school was because of the one-on-one classes. I was able to increase my level and learn more quickly than group classes. If I have a chance again to come next year, I certainly will.

Kim | UK

Intensive One on One Chinese Classes

I’ve had an amazing time at Keats. I am amazed of how much I’ve learned over the last 3 weeks and I will be really sad to go. We are already planning on next trip of coming back because we had such fantastic time here. They really tailor the course to you and your individual needs.

I am a graduate student working on my doctor degree at Columbia University. We were able to really focus on speaking especially interview  style speaking and we are able to really up my reading and writing, so when I go back to Columbia, I can take formal classes.  It has been a really good experience and I really love my teacher.
