Research Interests

To engage students with different learning requirement by involving them in course developing: designing the learning activities, choosing the learning materials, etc.

To provide students extracurricular activities to engage them more in learning the language. With Mandarin Stage 4 students, we worked and produced a class magazine in autumn semester of academic year 2017-18. Now this project has become a project for the whole department, involving students from all languages taught at the Language Centre who can take part in this extracurricular project to work with the language beyond the classroom and learning.
