Li-Jung Lee is a visiting lecturer of Chinese. She teaches non-heritage Chinese and heritage Chinese courses. Before joining the Department of Asian Studies at UBC, she taught Chinese at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, USA, and developed a new proficiency test and learning materials at the Division of Research and Development in the Steering Committee for the test of Proficiency – Huayu in Taiwan.
