Sim Wong Hoo

It all started 50 years ago when Sim's mother arranged for him to be educated in an all-English school. With no structured way of learning Chinese, he eventually found his own way of picking it up: writing Chinese characters for fun.

Sim's dedication to Chinese computing and Chinese Pedagogy started more than 25 years ago, when he designed the Cubic CT Bilingual PC and has since never looked back. These huge investments made over 25 years by Creative cumulated into the PlayChinese Pedagogy System today.

And now, he is sharing his secrets to mastering Chinese. "Believe! And you can master Chinese. Believe Chinese is easy, fun and beneficial. The best way to master anything is when you have fun." As you follow his guidance, he promised that every step will be stress-free, fun-filled and Magical!
