I teach both Chinese and English to non-native speakers at university level and give advice to students in English essay writing. Part of my teaching is to teach students communication skills and how to make presentations, which is also what I researched on for my MA. Now I am doing my PhD in the University of Leeds, looking at teaching communication skills to medical students in medical consultation. This is a project funded by NHS.
