I am now teaching in the Department of Chinese of The Hong Kong Institute of Education. I have been here since 1996. In between, from 2004 to 2009, I had taught in Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. My specialism is Chinese Linguistics. However, apart from teaching Etymology, Phonology or Classical Chinese, I also teach a wide range of courses in language teaching and pedagogy related. I am now the programme leader of a master degree, Teaching Chinese as an International Language (MATCIL) http://www.ied.edu.hk/matcil/.
