Fields of interest

My personal interests include Chinese language and culture, teaching Chinese as a foreign language, Dutch culture, Comparative culture, literature, translation, and new social media. As a Chinese native speaker teacher of TCFL based in the Netherlands, I believe that a wild interest in both sides of the world is as important as professional skills in carrying out your work professionally and interestingly.
