NiHao! I am Honglian WANG and my English name is Aileen. I have been a Mandarin Chinese teacher since graduate school and have 11 years’ experience (6 years’ experience of teaching IGCSE) working in international schools and teaching students all through preschool, primary and secondary schools. I graduated from Tianjin Foreign Studies University in China with a Bachelor Degree in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language. I am certificated in the Qualification for Senior International Chinese Language Teachers and completed the professional development course of Cambridge IGCSE Mandarin Chinese. It is a great pleasure for me to carry forward teaching of Chinese language and culture to HeadStart for the 7th year. It has been lovely to see the way in which the students’ skill and confidence has developed in Mandarin Chinese. I really enjoy working each day with all of our students from multi-cultural backgrounds and discussing various topics relevant to their study. I am always so happy when watching my students’ progress in the language. In my spare time, I like to read, listen to music and pet my cat. I am looking forward to see my students speaking beautiful Mandarin in the near future.
