Teaching and Scholarly Interests:

  • Bilingual Studies & Communication

Ms Jane Chan is a native speaker of both Putonghua and Cantonese and she received her Certificate of Putonghua Teaching from The University of Hong Kong. Ms Chan has also been very fond of the English language - a passion which has brought her not only top grades in English in public examinations during her school days, but also the motivation to obtain her Master of Science in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the University of Stirling, U.K. Her research interest lies in the area of biliteracy and trilingualism.

Ms Chan taught English and Putonghua in various institutions when she was still studying. She worked as a lecturer at Indiana University, U.S.A. where she taught English writing and vocabulary acquisition, as an assistant professor at Benedictine College, U.S.A. where she taught writing English as a second language, and as a lecturer at Hong Kong Baptist University where she taught Chinese Culture and Putonghua in English. She is also experienced in teaching English for hotel studies and TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) preparation courses. In addition, she has taught Putonghua in the fields of law, finance, architecture, construction, engineering, and insurance.

Prior to taking up teaching as a full-time career, Ms Chan had worked as a police interpreter at the Hong Kong Police Force, and as a professional legal translator in renowned American law firms. She had been a simultaneous interpreter for U.S. senators, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Vanuatu, the mayor of Nanjing, and the government officials of the Shangdong Province.

At HKCC, Ms Chan has taught English for Health Care, English Skills for Academic Studies, and English Skills for Business Communication. Currently, she teaches Putonghua for College Students and English for Academic Studies, while taking up at the same time the role of subject leader for the former.
