Staff Profile: Peihua Li

Mandarin Teacher

Pei-Hua AKA Da Li, or Big Li in English, has a Bachelor of Arts in Chinese Language and Literature from Nanjing Teachers’ University.  He also has a postgraduate degree in Applied Psychology from Suzhou University as well as his China National Teacher’s Certificate and National Putonghua (Standard Mandarin) Certificate Level 2, Grade A. 

Da Li joins us from the Shrewsbury International School, Bangkok where he taught Mandarin.  He has over twenty years teaching experience and has developed a very successful method of teaching he terms the ‘Hop Skip and Jump’ Method.  His success lies in his unique and exciting approach to teaching and learning. He has adopted a multi-faceted approach to teaching, including CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) using multimedia to make learning enjoyable and effective.  Da Li has compiled textbooks that focus on what the student needs to learn and use in daily life, and he describes his teaching style as humorous, passionate, creative and accommodating of different learning styles.  In addition Da Li is well known for his unique insight into Chinese culture and places the language in context so that students not only know how to say things, but also know why Chinese is put in such a way

Da Li has a wide range of interests including reading, educational research and all things computing.  Above all, he enjoys spending time with his family and taking his mother around sightseeing.
