Founder’s story

Jenny  Xiong

CEO & Founder
jenny@funchinese.fi

“I don’t know exactly when this seed was planted that I want to pursue a career in helping people to learn Chinese. I was born and raised in China. I started to work at the time when foreign companies entered in China. I have been working in multiple Fortune 500 companies in different industries for 20 years. I have been always enthusiastic about helping my foreign colleagues and friends to understand Chinese culture and learn Chinese. They said, “You would be a good Chinese teacher.” I felt flattered at the time. The seed has been planted.”

“I moved to Finland in 2016 for family reason. Since then, I have encountered many Finns who have strong interests in Chinese culture and want to learn Chinese. The seed I planted deep in my heart has started to grow gradually.”

“In 2019, with the help of the founder of Tang-Kid and the great support of my family and friends, I conducted lesson trials for 15 students in Finland with the age range from 5 yr. to 65+ yr., including Chinese and Finns. The trial lasted 6 months and got very positive feedback. This gives me great confidence to keep going! “
