Hello! I am Lian. I graduated with a master’s degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language, majoring in Modern Chinese Technology Education and Multimedia Distance Learning from the College of Chinese Language and Culture of Jinan University in Guangzhou. And also have the Certificate for Teachers of Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages
I have been teaching Chinese and training Chinese teachers for more than 10 years at Tamkang University. During this time, the Ministry of Education has granted me funding for four consecutive years to facilitate intensive classes in preparation for the Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language (TOCFL) held by the Steering Committee for the Test Of Proficiency – Huayu. These classes are tailored to sharpen students’ listening and reading comprehension skills in a short span of time and to familiarize them with the exam. Concurrently, I am also the university’s designated contributor to the Steering Committee where I help prepare exam questions for TOCFL. I believe that whether your aim is to learn Chinese or to solve problems, I can help you achieve your goals.
Apart from teaching in the classroom, I also organize cultural activities composed of fun and interesting traditional skills courses where students of all ages, be it 6 years of age or 75, can learn more about the Chinese language. These courses range from teaching students professional business Chinese to everyday conversations, and even Chinese cultural cues.
No matter how you would want to learn Chinese, trust that under my tutelage, you will be able to achieve your goals. I am confident that I can make your learning experience more efficient and that you yourself can see your own progress!
