I studied my BA in English Language and Literature in Shandong University of China, MA and PhD in Applied Linguistics and Language Teaching in the University of Southampton, and Certificate in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language in the SOAS of University of London. I am also certified as a TCFL teacher by the Office of Chinese Language Council International (Hanban) of China.
