At ZGT, we believe that strong communication skills are the basis of cross-cultural understanding. With the economic and political ties between The United States and China growing stronger each year, ensuring that both business people and students have a deep cultural and linguistic understanding of China is crucial.
ZGT’s team has extensive mentoring and business experience in the Chinese market and an intimate understanding of mastering the Chinese language. ZGT is debunking the myth that Chinese is an impossibly difficult language to learn and we are eager to bring our extensive knowledge of the language and culture to you. With the right approach, Chinese is the logical choice for many students and professionals to allow them to expand not only their linguistic skills but also their reasoning capacities, confidence in learning, and professional abilities.
Jamie Keyte- FOUNDER
Jamie Keyte grew up in New York City, attended The St. Bernard’s and Trinity Schools, and, after graduating from Kenyon College with majors in International Studies and Mandarin, spent several years working and travelling extensively in China. Jamie spent six months in Shanghai in 2008, where he completed an intensive language program at CET and interned and played for Shanghai’s professional baseball team, The Shanghai Golden Eagles.
Upon graduating, Jamie worked for ChinaPrep where he ran tours leading American high school students around China as well as Chinese students around the United States.
In 2010, Jamie decided to further enhance his Mandarin skills and completed a second intensive language program in Beijing focusing on business language. This led him to a job at Thomson Reuters in Beijing, where he became the China Project Manager for a Thomson Reuters’ subsidiary. During this time, Jamie developed the concept for ZGT.
Recently, Jamie has been focused on expanding ZGT’s reach, creating the best Mandarin curriculum possible with ZGT’s amazing staff, launching IvyGate (a Beijing based SAT tutoring business) and is soon to open a restaurant on the Lower East Side.
