Shalom from Vietnam

Post by tian777 »

Good day.
My name is Tian Hattingh.
In 1987 I completed a B.A. degree in Psychology and Philosophy at the University of South Africa. Starting in 1974, I studied Biblical Hebrew for three years at the same university, and although I never achieved a formal qualification in the subject,I soon felt obliged to share my knowledge with others that were equally interested in learning more about the Hebrew Bible. As a result of this yearning I later conducted part-time classes to beginners at the local Polytechnic in Rustenburg, South Africa where I was living at the time.

In 2002 I moved to mainland China, where I became an ESL / IELTS teacher. In February of 2012, I published Birds and Bibles in History, ISBN 978-1-907313-70-7 covering the history of the Tanakh, the history of Ornithology, and all 409 references to birds in the Old and New Testaments. From September 2014, I conducted classes for Beginners in Biblical Hebrew in the city of Shenzhen in China until March 2016 when I relocated to Vietnam. I have been an ESL Teacher, and IELTS Instructor and an on-line Biblical Hebrew teacher here since then. Currently I am working on a series of five textbooks aimed at laymen entitled Biblical Hebrew for All.

I have never joined a forum like this before and am excited to gain new insights into the fascinating text of the Hebrew Bible and humbly present my views where possible.
