A trilingual (Chinese, Japanese, English) ANU master student (Canberra based) provides you not only beyond-textbook language skills but also the deep understanding of different cultures by the multico

Methodology

- Combining the cultural background with the language teaching is the most important thing that I believe. By showing my life experience in different countries, students will be able to understand why Chinese and Japanese talk in that way. That's how to become an authentic foreign language speaker.
- Meanwhile, I will also set up the study goal with students and focus on the particular aspect accordingly. For example, for students who want to pass the language exam, the practice for various types of questions will be the main content of the class. In contrast, oral practicing will be the main topic if students want to be able to speak fluently.

Background

I have strong cross-cultural understanding and knowledge, a quality that I believe is vital in language teaching. I grew up in China and moved to Japan after graduating from high school. In addition to English, I am also fluent in both Chinese and Japanese and have a deep understanding of the two different cultures.

Additionally, I have had extensive work experience. My background experience includes previous paid employment for a Japanese telecommunication tester vendor for almost three years in Tokyo including roles as the China-oriented sales representative. In order to expand our market share more efficiently, I took on the role of organizing our market strategy. This included responsibilities such as managing local distributors and arranging and maximizing limited resources to meet customer requirements. The most difficult part of the role was communication between different cultures. To manage this challenge, I used my high level of communication skills and linguistic abilities, as well as my high-level understanding of Chinese and Japanese cultures to implement beneficial marketing activities. In addition, I was in charge of translating technical materials and interpreting for international meetings.
