    About me

    I am Senior Lecturer in Chinese and Head of Chinese in the School of Languages and Applied Linguistics at The Open University (UK), and Senior Fellow of The Higher Education Academy (UK). I am also Director of Studies in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, Christ’s College, University of Cambridge.

    Before joining OU, I was Senior Language Teaching Officer in the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Cambridge. Prior to that, I lectured in Chinese Studies at Lancaster University. Between 1992 and 1993, I worked for the BBC World Service as translator and presenter.

    I am author of many Chinese language teaching books, including: Developing Writing Skills in Chinese, 2nd ed. Routledge. ISBN: 978-0415678896 (co-authored with B. Yuan), 2013; Colloquial Chinese, 2nd ed. (2009). Routledge. ISBN:978-0415434157; and Colloquial Chinese 2: The next step in language learning. (2007). Routledge. ISBN: 978-0415328166.

    My main research interest is technology-enhanced language learning at a distance, effective communication on online forums, intercultural learning and mobile language learning. For my research publications, please click here.
