Mrs. Li is the Part-time Chinese instructor in the Department of Modern Languages at WKU. She received her undergraduate degree in English Education from Jishou University, China. Upon finishing her bachelor’s degree, in 2012 she then completed her Master’s degree in TCSOL (Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages) from Liaoning University, China. After her studies, she became qualified to teach Chinese. She has taught for two years in South Korea and three years in Edmonton, Kentucky. While in United States, she received a teaching certificate, to teach Chinese, from the state of Kentucky. In 2017, she began teaching Chinese at Western Kentucky University.
I believe that every student can speak Chinese if given the essential skills to succeed and have a motivated educator to instill knowledge. Also, students are at the center of teaching and because of this my lesson plans are prepared accordingly, for each student. I take into account my student’s needs, their interests, their goals, and their current level of understanding so that my students can be engaged during the class and so that they will enjoy learning about an unfamiliar topic.
