Nǐ Hǎo from Selma!
Embracing the role of a 'Cross-Cultural Ambassador' and teaching languages has always been a dream for me, and 'Marvelous Mandarin' marks the realization of that dream. My passion for sharing cultures is deeply rooted, and my Chinese heritage is a source of pride.
My educational journey has equipped me with the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue this passion. I hold a Bachelor's degree in linguistic studies and cross-cultural communication, followed by a Master's degree in Education and Journalism. Previously, I successfully taught English to China's national Olympic shooting and synchronized swimming teams. Additionally, I served as a bilingual event hostess for local foreign embassies and consulates in China.
From two initial students, I've now taught hundreds of students here in Austin, spanning ages 18 months to 78 years. Diverse backgrounds include CEOs of large multinationals and passionate Chinese language enthusiasts. I've conducted speeches and training on 'Chinese Culture & Business Etiquette' at local American companies. I have also created all the exclusive multimedia learning materials for students at Marvelous Mandarin, which received great feedback.
Beyond language education, I am also an accomplished artist, specializing in Chinese brush painting and calligraphy. My artistic talent has been recognized, and I feel fortunate to have worked with many high-profile clients. I also offer high-quality bilingual services for projects centered around finance, real estate, and social media.
I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment teaching Chinese language and culture, meeting new people, and sharing my heritage. I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to meet and work with you!
--Selma Lan, M.Ed.
