About the Author
Nick Lenczewski (Len-chess-key) spent 6 years living and working in China, is fluent in Mandarin and works as a Mandarin medical interpreter and translator.
Before arriving in China Nick had no work experience, no teaching experience, and had never studied Mandarin. What he had was the drive to travel Asia and connect with people of other cultures.
Nick acquired the travel bug on a study abroad trip to Greece and Italy for a semester in college -teaching abroad is the easiest way to travel another country cheaply and this is what prompted Nick to move to China to teach English.
Becoming fluent in Mandarin has opened up a world of work opportunties to Nick and he currently works as a translator and interpreter for hospitals, schools, and businesses.
Ultimate China Guide is Nick's first book and it's goal is to help others experience the awesome life that can be attained in China, the most exciting country in the world today.
