Meet our language teacher: Jenny Leow – ChinesePod
I am a language enthusiast, who learn languages in a fun, meaningful and interesting way - That' how we Chinese Malaysians acquire many languages. I taught International Schools' students, from primary to secondary; and now I have more adult’s students online. Different educational background, nationalities, age and gender have never become barriers for language learning in my lessons. I don’t believe in ultimate attainment and age effect theory as language is a fascinating and ever-growing knowledge. Being a Cambridge’s certified International Teacher and Chinese Confucius Institute certified Online Chinese Language Teacher, I was lucky awarded the Joint PhD. Research Scholarship 2014 in Peking University, Beijing, China. Currently, I am continuing the experimental research with the PKU's lecturer from China and the USM's lecturer from Malaysia in the field of Chinese as a Second Language and Online Teaching & Learning. Language learning is fun for me and all my students, so do you.
