Genevieve Lydstone's Chineasy Story

I met ShaoLan a few years back through mutual friends and we’ve been friends ever since. When I saw ShaoLan’s first TED talk I was struck by her unique teaching method that made Chinese feel so much more accessible to me than ever before. As a visual learner, the way she brings the language to life via illustrations really resonated with me. I love how each character conveys so much context. What a fascinating language.
