Story: Hey everyone, my name is Rafael and I'm from Santa Cruz, California. I got my B.A. in Mandarin and I'd like to eventually get a masters in linguistics. I first came to Taiwan in September of 2015 and learned very quickly what a cool place it is. My speciality as an English instructor is in phonetics and accent modification. I'm excited about designing a course that can help students improve their oral English in an engaging and memorable way.
