I got my BA in English Language and Literature in Beijing Normal University Zhuhai Campus, where I found my interest in second language acquisition. In the third year of university, I engaged in an exchange program in Taiwan Providence University with sponsorship. This experience broadened my mind and acquainted me with a new pattern of language teaching.
In 2016, with a strong passion to explore the field of linguistics and second language acquisition, I went on to pursue further education at Lancaster University. Throughout the year in Lancaster University, I acquired knowledge of various areas of language teaching, such as language testing, curriculum design, content-based language teaching and teaching students with dyslexia. All of these courses prepared me well for a future teaching position. Also, during my MA study I built up a solid foundation in research methodology, which contributes to my ability to carry out a study independently.
My research interests mainly lie in second language acquisition, especially in learners’ individual differences (e.g. motivation, anxiety and self-efficacy).
