I have completed the three years of ‘Chinese Language Training Course’ organized by the Yunnan Normal University at the UY. I have conducted my final year research on “The Comparison of quantifiers in Myanmar and Chinese Language” and I proudly have admitted to the bachelor’s degree in the first class.
In 2020, I and my colleague Ms. Hsu founded ‘Burmese for You’ and provided Burmese Language materials and videos, Online Burmese Language Courses and Events. In 2022, Burmese for you has been rebranded as Hsuzen language services which will provide various language courses and services.

And also,I have completed the Professional Development for Teacher Trainers Program (Online), provided by the University of Arizona. I have nearly five years’ experience in teaching Burmese to foreigners.
I am warm, accessible,
enthusiastic, caring about the learners and I have high expectations for the learners to be able to speak Burmese fluently. I am a linguaphile and very passionate about learning linguistics. Additionally, I am keen on embracing traditions and culture of different countries.
I occasionally provided free classes to help fellow students with learning Chinese at my native during my vacation.
