    Xiang Xi is native to the Chinese language. She lived in Japan for about 5 years and graduated with a Master's Degree in Social Education in Osaka University. It was there when she started to teach Chinese to Japanese students.

There are many who are increasingly interested in mastering Chinese as China begins to prosper, and Xiang Xi believes she can take this opportunity to teach as well as impart the history behind the language.
    She is also able to teach the Japanese language after years of living in Japan, and this enabled her to be even more proficient in the language.

    She is friendly and easy-going, and she likes to share life experiences with friends and students.
