Hi, I'm Kyle Balmer 白马楷

I've spent the last decade living, working and learning languages. 

I think we've got foreign languages all wrong. Speaking Chinese is a skill, not a school subject. We need to practice and use our languages, not study them. 

This website was set up to help others start communicating in Chinese, one of the world's least understood (and therefore "scary"!) languages.
