Of China, But Not In China

June 24th, 2016

Back in 2014, which is when I posted my last post here, I was finishing up my 8th year as a visiting professor at PKU in Beijing. Since then, I have not physically returned to China, but I remain there mentally, as I continue to work for several different Chinese companies, telecommuting from the comfort of my home office.

My latest Chinese gig is part-time editor with a Chinese website called Dig Mandarin (, for which I edit educational posts and articles about learning Mandarin Chinese, as well as write my own articles about my various adventures in and impressions of the Middle Kingdom. As each new article appears on the Dig Mandarin site, I will also post it here.

I have also kept up my own Chinese language studies, working with a tutor here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who is originally from Suzhou and Taiwan. I have not yet reached my goal of being able to speak as well as a two-year-old Chinese child, but I’m getting closer. I’ll share my language learning experiences here, too.

高兴回来! (Gaoxing huilai) Happy to be back!
