Yimin Mi

Yimin Mi, Mandarin Teacher

Mandarin Teacher

Originally from the Inner Mongolia region of China, Yimin Mi joined NAIS Dublin as a Mandarin language teacher through a partnership with University College Dublin (UCD) Confucius Institute for Ireland. Yimin earned a BA in Philosophy at Inner Mongolia University and it was during her undergraduate studies that she developed a passion for the subjects of Chinese philosophy and language, and in interest in teaching as a way to share her love of these subjects. 

Inspired to teach outside of China, Yimin came to Ireland and pursued an MA in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages at University College Cork. The training at UCC allowed her to develop an indepth understanding, as well as advanced techniques, for teaching the Chinese language. After graduating, Yimin worked at DIT (Dublin Institute of Technology) as an assistant lecturer in Chinese Language and Culture and later returned to China for 10 months to teach international students in Beijing. She then returned to Ireland after receiving an invitation from the UCD Confucius Institute for Ireland to be a Visiting Scholar.

Yimin finds teaching to be a gratifying profession, having come to it through the process of her own studies. She finds it particularly enriching to build up a natural trust and connection with her students as a way to provide a relaxing, encouraging environment to learn the language. She is delighted to be a part of the NAIS Dublin community and the founding of the new school! 

In her spare time, Yimin loves travelling and food, and enjoys reading, photography, modern dance and has recently taken up the practice of 'Pound Fit' cardio excercise!
