I graduated from Hebei Normal University majoring in teaching Chinese as the second language in June 2008. I also achieved the certificate of Mandarin Proficiency Test and the Chinese Teaching Qualification Certificate of Primary School in China. Before I came to BSB, I have taught Chinese to native and non-native speakers in secondary school and college in Bali Island of Indonesia from July 2008 to June 2011.
It has been eight years already, I still can remember the picture the first time I came to BSB for my job interview. BSB looked fantastic and very professional! I joined BSB Shunyi in August 2011. I worked as a Primary Mandarin Teacher for seven years and I am a Secondary Mandarin teacher now. I have taught across the entire school in EYFS, Primary and Secondary school!
I really enjoy seeing the students making progress and showing more and more understanding about Chinese. I like to speak Chinese with the Second Language Learner and I am happy to read the Near Native students’ creative writing and their short drama created by the text we have learned.
When I and my students learn about Chinese culture, I explain by video or discuss with them to explore what the differences are and why and how we should treat the difference. For example: I taught and discussed with the students the differences between the Chinese and British education system and let them know clearly how to describe the year grades in Chinese correctly.
