hou-mengqiHOU Menqi holds a Bachelor Degree in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language from Anhui Normal University of China and now is a Master candidate of Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Language (MTCSOL) at Fudan University.

During the one year of studying at Fudan University, she gained valuable knowledge and experience in Chinese language teaching in the International Cultural Exchange School. In her spare time, she taught Chinese to foreign students one-to-one, which is a wonderful and fun learning experience for her students.

Hou Mengqi enjoys Chinese and Chinese traditional culture. Her hometown is Henan Province, so she is good at Yu opera. She also loves Chinese traditional instruments and she already gained  level eight certificate in guzheng.

In her eyes, teaching one kind of language is the process of exchanging different cultures, so she hopes to experience the real culture and society personally during the one year in Edinburgh. She wants to be the one, who is not only the Chinese language teacher, but more is the herald of two different cultures. Engaging!
