Hi! We're Sjors and Rebecca 👋
We met back in 2014 while Sjors was studying Chinese at Xiamen University (厦门大学). We've been together ever since, and we now live together in Groningen, the Netherlands.
We created Kaoya Chinese in May 2022. Our goal for Kaoya Chinese is to make Chinese as easy and fun to learn as possible. We hope to achieve this goal by creating high quality learning resources.
The site is brand new, and we have big plans for Kaoya Chinese. We are just getting started. If you'd like to stay up-to-date, you can sign up for our newsletter.
The name Kaoya comes from our love of Chinese food, Chinese barbeque in particular. When written in Chinese characters, Kaoya is meant to be spelled 考鸭, a play on words of 烤鸭.
If you'd like to get in touch, please don't hesitate to email us at KaoyaChinese@gmail.com. We'd love to hear your thoughts, ideas, or suggestions.
