Li-Jung Lee first started teaching at UBC as a visiting lecturer of Chinese, and she is now a sessional lecturer. 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.
Li-Jung believes learning should be meaningful and fun. It will help learners overcome their frustrations and make them become life-long learners. For her, the satisfaction of teaching is that students immerse themselves in Chinese happily and share their ideas with people in Chinese confidently.
