  • School Visits

    From 2013 to 2015, I taught voluntarily on an introductory course in Chinese language and culture at University of Limerick Open Days. Due to my excellent performance, I was invited to several school visits to deliver extra workshops. For example, I was invited to Salesians Secondary School, Limerick to do a follow-up culture teaching activity after the open day in 2014. Through this voluntary work, I developed my skills of working and collaborating with secondary school leaders, teachers and students.
