Teaching English as a Foreign Language

Welcome to the website for Michael & Vivian Krigline

If you are teaching English, learning English, interested in China or want to see photos from China or the USA,

then you have come to the right place!

Michael has been teaching English in China since 2000, and currently lectures at Xiamen University.

 ◘ 从2000年, 林老师在中国担任英语老师; 正在在厦门大学讲课。 ◘

◘  If you don't live in China (or if pages look incomplete), www.krigline.com might load faster  ◘  介绍中国 

Important: technical problems are common--sorry!

If something seems out of date, try adding ".cn" to that page's address,

e.g., www.krigline.com.cn/index.htm (see further explanation below or here)


Michael & Vivian Krigline, along with son Andrew (visiting for Christmas 2011, from his university in Ohio); beautiful Xiamen is in the background, with Xiamen University's tallest building right in the center.

Michael and Vivian became grandparents in December 2010, and again in June 2012!

I don't know of any other Kriglines with a website, but we'll be glad to link any other Kriglines to this page!

Technology notes and explanation:

Microsoft stopped updating FrontPage software in 2003, and I haven't had time to "start my website over" using other software. So, I apologize if you get an incomplete page, broken link, or other problem. While I'm in China, trans-pacific Internet connections are undependable and/or blocked. In fact, my "Chinese" website is sometimes completely "gone", and updating my "American" website requires two computers and several software programs--so it is a lot of trouble to update! In China, we also experience restricted access to web-based E-mail sites (e.g., gmail and "at krigline") from time to time. Please keep this in mind if you send us E-mail. Sorry for the inconvenience. (There's more info on the "use-policy" page.)   Michael

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

About us: This is the personal website of the Krigline family: Americans who have been "teaching and learning" in China since 2000. All photos and materials are 2013 Michael Krigline unless otherwise noted. We maintain this site primarily for the benefit of our friends in China, and to provide our friends around the globe with a taste of China--in the hope of building greater understanding between the people of the West and the East. 


Regarding .CN: We have created a China-based version of the website so that the pages will load quicker for our students in China. See "use policy" for more information.
