Welcome to Chinese 103! 欢迎你!
I am Li Laoshi. Here's a little bit about my background. I started learning Chinese my first year of college in a very intensive program - memorizing 60 characters a week! I lived in our school's Chinese language dormitory and had the opportunity to meet people from China and live with a Chinese tutor from Beijing. I liked learning Chinese so much I decided to major it.

In undergrad, I got to live in Shanghai, China for a summer. What an exciting city! Check out the Lonely Planet's Shanghai guide here.

In graduate school, I got to spend a year's time in China living in Qingdao (pictures) and Nanjing (pictures).
I am excited to be teaching all of you this summer! Happy Chinese learning!
