As a quadrilingual language learning specialist, Queenie is dedicated to creating engaging language learning experiences for young and mature learners, focusing on nurturing multiple intelligences in the language learning process. Queenie continues to inspire her students today with her passion for languages and innovative QKawabe methods.



The Early Days

Queenie's love for languages and words began in her childhood, and she has since developed into a true linguaphile. Her fascination with television programs in various languages led her to spend more time emulating the sounds of the words rather than just passively watching the programs.

In her youth, Queenie recognized the power of language in connecting people from diverse cultures. This understanding inspired her to embrace the value of diversity both personally and professionally, and develop the language skills to communicate with others in more meaningful ways.

The Challenge

At school, Queenie began exploring different language learning and communication methods, observing how individuals developed their language skills. At that point, she noticed that language school teachers often prioritized excelling in language examinations rather than teaching effective communication. As a result, despite performing well on language exams, she felt discontented with the outcome.

To her, language is a medium for self-discovery, self-expression, and meaningful communication with others. At that moment, she realized that the emphasis on achieving high scores put too much pressure on students to please their teachers and failed to prioritize the true purpose of language. Instead, it should create engaging language learning experiences - and the "QKawabe method" concept was born!

The QKawabe Method

After establishing her language teaching business as a university student in Australia, Queenie began refining her teaching skills. Through years of research and experience working with hundreds of students, she developed a unique approach to language learning: The QKawabe Method™️.
