About me

I have a Masters Degree in Chinese Language Pedagogy. I am an experienced teacher of Mandarin in different settings. Before joining LSE, I taught all levels of Chinese at Harvard University and won Teaching Distinction Certificates in three consecutive years. I have experience in teaching a wide range of Mandarin courses in different settings, including pre-school classes, high school summer programs and university intensive programs. At the LSE, I teach degree as well as non degree courses.

In addition to in-class teaching I am one of the writers of the book Cases on Audio-Visual Media in Language Education. Currently, I am writing a language textbook on teaching specific Chinese in International Relations. I attended and presented at several regional and international language conferences. My past presentation topics include video project, grammar teaching, essay writing and curriculum design.

I am involved in teaching on the following undergraduate degree programmes, BSc International Relations and Chinese and BSc Language, Culture and Society.

About the Language Centre

LSE is a centre for the study of the social sciences and this is reflected in its Language Centre.

Our courses focus on language and society, encouraging you to learn how to use language in the contexts you would like to live, study and work in. We teach people to speak languages, but also teach about language (socio-linguistics and intercultural communication) and offer a range of courses on literature and society. 

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, BSc programmes a range of undergraduate degree courses that can be taken as part of a degree and a range of language options that can be taken outside of a degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.
