Welcome back to another episode of the I’m Learning Mandarin Podcast. It’s been a while since I recorded the last one but we’re back and planning regular episodes over the coming weeks and months.
Today we speak to Pamela Rose, an educator and Mandarin teacher with a fascinating background. Pamela grew up in New York, to a Chinese mother and an American father. She didn’t learn any Chinese in early childhood but as a teenager became fascinated by the language, as well as her own cultural heritage.
From there she embarked on a journey which would culminate in her not only becoming fluent in Chinese but also qualifying as a Mandarin teacher. In this podcast Pamela shares her story with us and explains how her experiences in the classroom, both as an instructor and learner, have shaped her teaching approach and methods.
In other news, if you’re based in Europe and are looking for opportunities to immerse in Chinese for extended periods, you might want to check out our partner Mandarin Retreat‘s summer camp which will take place from August 28th to September 1st in wales.
You can check out a positive review here and watch the video below to get a flavour of the retreats.
Food, domestic transport and accommodation are included and anyone who books on a retreat will get five online Chinese classes with the private language school LTL Mandarin as part of the package. Learners of all levels are welcomed and will be fully supported by a helpful team of volunteers and Mandarin tutors.
