Join Michel’le Jackson and Christina Colgan as they find out the Word on the Street!


With roots in South Carolina, Michel’le Jackson is uniquely interested in Chinese language learning. The inspiration for learning Mandarin came after living in Chongqing, China for one year. Now, Michel’le enjoys sharing her passion for the Chinese language with people out on the streets in New York
Christina Colgan was born in California but moved to Hong Kong when she was 9 years old. She lived there for 13 years before she moved to New York and started working for Sinovision. Being half Chinese and living in Asia for more than half her life exposed her to 3 different dialects – Mandarin, Taishan, and Cantonese. She enjoys heading out to the streets and testing people on their Chinese and guessing skills.
