Taurus Wu


Head of Mandarin Department

I was born in Beijing and joined BSB in 2008 as a one-to-one teaching assistant and then became a teacher at the school in 2011. I am now Head of the Mandarin Department.
I graduated from Beijing Language and Culture University majoring in teaching Chinese as a second language. I also hold a certificate in teaching Chinese as a second language issued by the International Chinese Language Association.

My goal has always been to become a language teacher and with this in mind I joined the Primary Chinese department at BSB in 2011. I teach children with a range of abilities, from beginners to advanced intermediate across both foundation stage and primary, ages 4 to 11 years old. I believe that teaching should be child centred and that language learning should be fun and hands-on. I am also passionate in designing the Chinese curriculum to make it interactive, fun and differentiated to the needs of the students.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my wife and my family. I enjoy travelling and exploring the local customs and cultures of different countries.
