My name is Phil Crimmins. I'm from the United States of America and I live in Chengdu, China. I came to China first in April of 2011.
我是Phil Crimmins,来自美国。我 2011年4月份来到中国,目前住在成都。

 

So we started the business in January of 2016. What we do is we build the character learning using a mnemonic visualization system that is patent pending to help them step by step, learn every aspect of Chinese characters.
我们在2016年1月份开始创业,用立体成像学习法帮助外国人一步一步学习汉字的每一个方面,我们正在给这个方法申请专利。

 

It was the first (entrepreneurial visa) in Sichuan. I went through the procedures of getting the visa because the Sichuan University students office called me and said, hey, there's a new visa that's being released for graduates, new graduates from Chinese universities. They weren't too complicated. I had to submit a business plan and submit my various credentials, but it was pretty easy. And I was delighted to get the visa.
实际上,我拿到了四川的第一个创业签证。四川大学学生办公室打电话给我,说有一个新的签证正在发放给从中国大学毕业的学生。办理签证的手续并不复杂。我提交了一份商业计划书和我的各种证书,这很容易。我很高兴能拿到签证。

 

We also benefited from the entrepreneurship competitions that are sponsored by the government here. So we participated in 2017 in the Tianfu Cup Entrepreneurial Competition (天府杯创业比赛). And that was a great moment for us. We actually came in second place in the preliminary competition and that gave us a 10000 RMB grant. That mechanism was a big benefit to us.(There were)news stories written about us at that time. And so that was super helpful towards getting us some name recognition.
我们也受益于政府在这里举办的创业比赛。2017年,我们参加了天府杯创业比赛,这对我们来说是一个重要的时刻。难以置信的是,我们在预赛中拿到了第二名,获得了1万元的奖金。这个比赛还给我们带了一个很大的好处,当时有很多关于我们的新闻报道,因此帮助我们增加了知名度。

 

There will definitely be more Chinese learners. China is such an important player on the world stage. There are opportunities to work in China. There are opportunities to start businesses in China. There's of course all the different reasons one might want to learn the most spoken language in the world, mandarin has more speakers than both English speakers and Spanish speakers combined. So the opportunities you open up to yourself by learning mandarin are incalculably high.
肯定会有更多的人学习汉语。中国在世界舞台上是一个如此重要的角色。在中国有工作、创业的机会。有很多不同的原因使一个人想要学习世界上说的最多的语言—普通话。普通话的使用者比英语和西班牙语使用者的总和还要多。因此,你通过学习普通话为自己打开的机会是不可估量的。
