Learn Chinese online with Danyang Zhang



Learn Chinese online:

I am a Chinese girl who studies MA Education and Technology in UCL Institute of Education. This is my second master and I studied MA Applied Linguistics in UCL IOE. I am a student ambassador in UCL IOE now, usually helping teachers and students to do some administrative work. I am an outgoing girl who have many hobbies like playing the piano, watching movies, reading books and so on.

I was a voluntary teacher teaching primary school students Chinese and English in a local primary school in China for four years. I really enjoyed the time spending with my students, not only lecturing them, but also communicating with them, making friends with them and trying to figure out the most appropriate teaching pedagogy for each students. I realised teachers should be helpers and guides in class, rather than leaders. Besides, I was a private tutor teaching secondary school students Chinese, English and piano during weekends when I was a undergraduate student. During that period, I deeply understood the importance of personalised learning for students, trying to find students’ own strengthens and weakness and giving them useful guidance. When I came to the UK, studying MA Applied Linguistics in UCL Institute of Education, I attended the Chinese Corner activity teaching Mandarin for IOE teachers and students. I gained lots of experiences teaching Chinese as a foreign language and had a really great time.
