Interview of Keats Teacher – Ms. Jin Li

Ms. Jin Li, born in Chuxiong – Yunnan, graduated from university in 2013 with a bachelor degree in English language. Since then, she has been working as a language teacher. Jin started to work at Keats from the beginning of 2014. Till this month, Jin has taught more than 40 students from all over the world with different Chinese language levels. Jin has a strong ability to teach students with any language background. After teaching the small group classes for two semesters, Jin summed up many creative and interesting teaching methods, which significantly helped her students improve their Chinese.

Keats: Ms. Jin Li, why did you choose to work in Kunming given the fact that you were born in Chuxiong?

Jin: Kunming, located in the southwest of China, is a hub of cultural and economic exchanges with Southeast Asian countries. Therefore, you can find many opportunities here. In addition, the weather in Kunming is ideal for living and working here. It is not far from my hometown and I can go back home to visit my parents easily.

Keats: Why did you choose to work at Keats?

Jin: To me, Keats is more like a big family. I love working here. Whenever I encounter problems, everyone else is more than happy to help me and share their experience with me. I feel happy from bottom of my heart when I teach at Keats and see the progress made by my students. I can also receive self-improvement by working at Keats, which is an important part of my career planning.

Keats: Which activity impressed you most when you work at Keats?

Jin: Except the daily teaching at Keats, the school also organizes interesting after-class activities. The management team does a great job in helping the teachers and the students solve their problems in time. I remember once when we took a day-trip to the Golden Temple. The management team carefully prepared all games and arranged an English speaking tour guide for us, which surprised all teachers and students. Most of us have visited the Golden Temple many times, but none of us really understand its history and story. This trip impressed me most and I feel that I am learning as a student as well.

Keats: By working at Keats, which aspects do you think you get improved?

Jin: Before working at Keats, I thought teaching Chinese can be an easy job. However, after the professional training at Keats, I found that teaching Chinese and being an excellent Chinese teacher are challenging. The training before work was very helpful to me because I learned so many teaching methods, which turned out to be very efficient when I used them in my real teaching. I also like the on-going training after I started to work. The experienced teachers like to share and exchange their teaching thoughts with the new teachers. Now, I can master the teaching materials to meet different students’ learning expectations and requirements. The focus for my next stage at Keats would be testing the creative teaching methods I made, to make my teaching more interesting and effective.

My school is amazing. I recommend Keats School because it is a more convenient way to learn Chinese in Kunming.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

The best part of the school is the patience the instructors had and the time to focus on the fundamentals like pronunciation. I think it is very easy to skip over those and go to vocabulary. But by learning the pronunciation, I feel like it helped me gain a better understanding of the language.

I’ve been at Keats school and Kunming now for one month doing the one-on-one Chinese lessons with two different teachers. I really enjoy it. Both of my teachers are very friendly and patient. They really helped me to improve my Chinese, both of my reading and speaking. I really enjoy studying Chinese in Kunming as well. This city is really beautiful and the weather is nice, the air is clean. It’s one of the best cities in China to study Chinese.

It is very convenient to come to Kunming from Thailand. I really like my Chinese class and my Chinese improved a lot in a few months. There are many benefits of learning Chinese. The best thing I like about Keats is that it is in Kunming, a city with eternal spring. There is so much to see in Kunming and you will love this city after you come.

I took the one-on-one Intensive Chinese class for 6 hours a day. The classes are very interesting. The teachers are caring and the content the teacher teaches me is suitable for my level. It is an easy way to learn Mandarin. I have a lot of time practicing Chinese in class. The food is great here. I have improved my Chinese through this program at Keats.

Intensive One-on-One Chinese Classes

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

I found Keats to be very good, teachers are excellent and really take the students seriously. Kunming is the best place to learn Mandarin in China. The environment is awesome, no pollution. The air quality is great, good weather. The people here are very friendly. I come to take classes every day. I feel comfortable studying Chinese at Keats. I learned so many things, although I only studied at Keats for 2 months. I am really satisfied with my teacher. For us foreigners, Keats is the best Chinese school in China. Therefore, I would highly recommend Keats to all of you.
