Lam Chi ChioYear 2 student of Intl Chinese Lang Education
Our teachers are experienced scholars who have not only inspired me academically, but sparked my interest in teaching. I’ll soon set off to Portugal to study for a year. I’m looking to further develop my language skills and explore the educational culture there. This experience will certainly prepare me well to become an excellent Chinese teacher.
