Li Ren

English Instructor Center For Language Education

I have a PhD degree on English/Chinese bilingual education from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and a master’s degree on linguistics and applied linguistics (TESOL) from Beijing Normal University. With around ten years of experience in foreign language teaching in both the United States and in China, I am also interested in applying most updated teaching methodologies into my practice.
