About the BookEncouragement

逐步 Step by Step


The best way to learn and remember new information is in small pieces every day. As an ESL instructor for many years, I have known this to be true. Our book, My New Life in Vancouver, is full of new information that immigrants to the city will find helpful about the everyday life, organizations, customs, and habits of local Vancouverites. Therefore, Yi Zheng and I have organized the book to have a small reading for each day of the year. One day at a time, one short reading at a time (written in both English and Mandarin) will give you a deep understanding of life in Vancouver. The topics of the daily readings have themes such as “everyday customs”, “western restaurants”, “how to meet locals”, “how to find volunteer work”, “guide to healthcare”, “best schools” and many more. Of course, if you are in a hurry and want to read all the entries in a certain theme, then it is easy to use the index at the end of the book to quickly find all the information you need. However, why not take your time and enjoy the journey step by step, day by day?
