About LCTS

Dear founding patrons,

Rui and Simeng here !

It's in our little apartment where we recorded our first episode 《狼来了》/the wolf is coming. It was an early summer morning in 2015 !  We recorded it with GarageBand (that we did not know how to use) on our IKEA dining table. If you listen to that episode today, you can tell how poor the recording and editing were. But we are happy we started it.

Both of us started our career as a Chinese teacher and have taught the language to students ages 10 to 70 in different countries for over 10 years. We love it !
During the years of practice, we have had the privilege of meeting with many fantastic learners with an extensive vocabulary and grammar knowledge, however, many of whom had a difficult time communicating with ordinary Chinese people, which reminded us of our experience of learning English in China. We learned English from the textbook, but did not have the opportunity to experience how it’s used in authentic conversations among the native English speakers, nor did we learn much slang or cultural references that ordinary people use frequently in written and spoken English.
That's why we started LCTS! 

We hope to help Chinese learners to not only understand the explicit meaning conveyed through words, but also the meaning behind the words/structures. And if there is one extra goal, that is to help everyone explore the lives of ordinary Chinese people, like our dads, moms, sisters, brothers and friends etc.

Thank you! It has been an unbelievable journey full of joy and blessing. Without your support and generosity, this could not have been possible.

Love you all! ❤️

Rui & Simeng
