Jobs Offered & Wanted

19 January 2014

Yanmei Wu: I currently teach at  Manchester Metropolitan University. I have been teaching Chinese here for two years. But I really want to move back to Edinburgh where most of my old and good friends are based. I am originally from Jiangsu, China. I went through five years of full time training in a prestigious teacher training academy there and have been involved in language teaching ever since. I was also trained in music and dance from an early age. I have lived and worked in Britain (Scotland + England) for over 11 years, as a dancer, musician and most of all, as a Mandarin teacher.

I have a strong background in cultural studies and I specialise in teaching Mandarin tones / pronunciation. And as a teacher trainer, I have been contributing to MacMillan Education's Chinese teacher training programme for about a year now, providing workshops on 1) teaching tones; 2) integrate pronunciation reminders into oral activities;  3) cultural differences in class; and 4) explaining (the old and new) China.Education wise, I gained my Master in Music Performance from SOAS; MA in Visual Anthropology from Goldsmiths; and MA in Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language from Sheffield. I am starting a part time practice-led PHD in Chinese Kunqu Opera and how women are represented in it. Contact Mei at:  Y.Wu@mmu.ac.uk
