A few words from Yining
You can learn so much about a country’s culture and history from its language, as I discovered during my degree in Chinese Characters. I decided that I wanted to share this knowledge with foreigners learning Chinese and as a Chinese teacher at Culture Yard, I really like working deep in the hutongs, which are full of history and culture, surrounded by friendly local people, restaurants and shops. Even as a Beijinger I think it is still very special to work everyday in Beijing’s hutongs.
