Professor George Xinsheng Zhang

Richmond’s Prof George Zhang spoke on language learning and teaching in Britian

Richmond Professor George Zhang gave a talk recently at Gresham College on “Why Should and Can British Learn Foreign Languages?” The talk was the first of the Master’s Seminar 2015 organised by the Worshipful Company of Educators, of which Peter Williams, one of the Trustees of the Richmond University London is the Master. In addition to the demands and needs in the UK for language skills in today’s globalised world, George also used his experience of the teaching of Chinese language, a language often mysteriously perceived to be very difficult to learn here, especially his work at Richmond to illustrate how language learning and teaching could be done in an enjoyable and fruitful manner.
