Born in China and raised in Iowa, Minwei has been switching between English and Chinese since she was little and has always been passionate about languages and linguistics. Minwei was a Chinese teaching assistant during college at Williams College and also spent a few weeks teaching English in China. In the evenings when not teaching with Fluent City she can be found at the boxing gym, arranging flowers, catching up on a book, or trying to learn new languages herself. She's currently studying French and Japanese and loves the Fluent City community for its active exchange of languages, ideas, and new learnings! If you take a class with her, she'll likely try to arrange class outings and dinners because her Fluent City students have become some of her best friends in the city!
