Peggy Teaches Chinese

I've been watching the Peggy Teaches Chinese YouTube video's since she first started making them back in February. Her lessons are good, and she has a good sense of humour. It is also great to see some Taiwan based lessons for a change. There is not an enormous difference between the Mandarin spoken in China and that spoken in Taiwan, but there are differences. And of course the writing is different.

She also offers skype tutoring.

I may post some of her best lessons on here in future, as well as any new lessons she uploads.
