The Year of the Snake has begun and we are off to another exciting year here at Better Chinese. I've been working here for a little over a year now and one of my favorite parts of my job is getting the chance to meet teachers and administrators at the various language conferences around the world. I learn so much about how our products are being used and what can improved. Below is a list of the conferences that we will be attending in 2013.
