I am a native mandarin speaker, born and raised in the southwest of China. I come from a family with a deep appreciation for Chinese literature, as my father is a professor of Chinese literature. Growing up, I was taught how to appreciate one of the oldest and most profound language in the world, and study it in various literary forms such as poetry, lyrics, classical Chinese writing and contemporary novels, etc.
I’ve stayed in Switzerland for 4 plus years for completing a business degree, I’ve work for the visa section of British consulate-general, and also worked as arts officer and manager in British Council China office. I came to UK a couple of years ago to complete my postgraduate degree in cultural study at SOAS, I am living in Carlisle at the moment.
I enjoy teach people from different cultural and education background, although I've never gained any teaching qualification, I've taught adult student to learn mandarin for business and travel purpose, I enjoy teaching anyone who is interested in mandarin and Chinese culture. Over the course of 5 and half years in British Council, I've gained rich experience in mandarin-English-mandarin oral translation in various occasions including formal and informal business meetings, workshops, conferences, etc. I've also had extensive experiences in written translation for articles, original scripts for play and catalogues,
I am a very flexible teacher, I have experience teaching students to learn basic mandarin based on his/her specific requirement (e.g. travel to China, short-term live in China, business meetings), text book teaching is also available, it's really depend on your preference. I am a relaxed, easy-going person, I also consider myself quite creative, I like to use examples, visual objects and drawings to help people to learn.
