Hello Everyone!

Here are my contact details as well as links to projects I mentioned and lots of videos that I took in my classes of things I've done.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'd really love to know what your project ideas are (plus I might have a trick or two up my sleeve to help you with it!). Don't feel overwhelmed with all of this stuff, or with all of the possibilities that are out there. Just pick one thing that interests you and go with that. Gotta start somewhere! :-)

祝你好运!

P.S I have embedded all of the following videos from TeacherTube. Each one should work just by clicking on play. TeacherTube has just changed things recently so they are only showing up as black screens rather than showing the first image of the video, and there is more advertising! Grrr...

And if you get this far, here is a real treat! (I joke I joke!)
This is a video of 3 short Chinese lessons I made for a class in England. I was even inspired to poetry in the last lesson! Ah, the crazy things I do...
