Born and raised in Shanghai, August proudly calls himself “an authentic Shanghainese” and is more than happy to present this wonderful city to friends from home and abroad.
Pursuing his love and passion for languages, he got his BA in English and later an MA in linguistics, during the acquisition of which he did an exchange to Germany to study in Business Administration. His longtime fascination with diversified culture led him through half of Europe and beyond.
After having taught English for over a decade, he caught up with the trend and joined the marketing department with a unicorn company VIPKID and became a business developer / lecturer, analyzing the market and distributing contents from a linguistic point of view.
Today, still sidelining as an English teacher, you can find him earnestly teaching English on IPTV in Shanghai.
Celebrate the things that unite us, rather than the things that divide us
Build deeper and lasting relationships
Not being able to count on others, not being counted on
Build and nurture a network of connection
Becoming blindly loyal, getting too tied up, avoiding of confrontation at all cost
Lack of openness and collaboration”
Weakening of our social bonds
