About the Author
Jade Jia Ying Wu completed her Teaching Certificate Program in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and TCSOL (Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages) from Teachers College, Columbia University and Beijing Language and Culture University in 2016. She has taught Chinese in classrooms of different sizes and ages, in both the U.S. and China. Jade was born and raised in Guangdong, China, where Cantonese is one of the main dialects. She moved to Swartz Creek, Michigan at the age of 13 and spent most of her young adulthood living in New York City. Experiencing both Chinese and American cultures, she was often confused yet fascinated by the differences between them. In 2014, she created her website InspirLang to teach Cantonese, Mandarin, and Taishanese to non-native speakers and develop her own Romanized system for Taishanese. She currently hosts two language podcasts called Learn Cantonese Daily and Learn Mandarin Daily. In her free time, Jade also enjoys learning other languages such as Spanish, Vietnamese, and Korean. She resides in Brooklyn, New York.
