Hi！ My name in Grace Liu. I am twelve years old and I am currently in eighth grade at Creighton Middle School. I was originally born in China in Shandong, Jinan, but within a year I moved to America with my entire family. Outside of school and learning Chinese, I play the piano, participate in club volleyball, and I also enjoy self-learning how to draw and make unique art. From the beginning of my journey of learning Chinese to today, I have been studying it for nearly six years now. I used to learn Chinese at Lakewood Chinese School, but just recently last year I transitioned to Highlands Ranch Chinese School seeking to learn more at a faster pace. Since I was little, my parents have always put education and my Chinese as a priority above most things, thus that is why I had learned how to read and write both Chinese and English very early on before I even entered school. Due to this, I skipped Kindergarten in elementary school and skipped three grades at Chinese school. This year I am learning Chinese with my Chinese teacher, Mrs. Yang，and I am incredibly eager to continue learning this beautiful language in the future.
Yiyang Liu is diligent, studious and very intelligent.She understands the materrial and provides good feedback.She can ask good questions, the homework is done well and her handwriting is neat. For a child who grew up in the United States, she loves the Chinese language and actively seeks to learn more. She is an excellent student!
