About me

I have a BA and an MA in Russian Linguistics and Literature from Beijing Normal University, China and an LLM in Banking and Finance Law from SOAS. I have also passed the national 'Bar Examinations' in China. 

I started work at LSE in October 2006 and have considerable experience in teaching Chinese for business purposes. Previously I worked as a senior specialist in international trade and foreign investment. During this time I also served as a Chinese diplomat.

About the Language Centre

The Language Centre here at the London School of Economics reflects the specialist nature of the School itself, namely, a world class institution where the quality of teaching and research is paramount.

LSE is not just a multi-national university but also a multi-lingual one.

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, undergraduate degree courses and a range of language options that you can take outside of your main degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.

The Language Centre is part of LSE’s Academic and Professional Development Division.

About the Academic and Professional Development Division

The units in LSE’s Academic and Professional Development Division run degree programmes, courses and events; offer advice, opportunities and funding to advance the development of academic staff and students; and support the implementation of educational strategy and policy across the School.
