Foreign Language Teaching Assistant | Chinese

Pacific University has hosted Foreign Language Teaching Assistants (FLTA) since 1994.  Over the years, FLTAs have come from such countries as Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Chile, China, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Taiwan, Tunesia, and Uruguay.  FLTAs assist in language classes, tutor, facilitate language conversation tables, and organize cultural events on and off campus. They also make themselves available for public presentations about their cultures and enrich campus life with their international perspectives.  

Chao-Yi Ho is the FLTA for the Chinese program at Pacific University.

Chinese Program Foreign Language Teaching Assistant

Chao-Yi Ho, FLTA

Hello, my name is Chao-Yi Ho. I’m the new Chinese teaching assistant this year.

I come from Taiwan, the only democratic country in Chinese-speaking world. In fact, we just elected our first female president!

 

I majored in English Literatures and English Teaching. Last year, I was a student teacher in Wu-Ling Senior High School, which is part of my training to be a qualified high school English teacher in Taiwan.

 

This is my first time in US! Thanks for the helping hands. So far everything goes amazingly well. People at Pacific University are so friendly and warm. I think I’m really lucky to be here!

 

I can’t wait to see you guys in language tables and the cultural evenings. Chinese cultural evenings are on Mondays. If you are interested in Chinese, the language, the culture, or even the food, come join us and have fun!

 

你好,我是今年新的中文助教何昭儀,我來自台灣。台灣是中文世界中唯一的民主國家,事實上我們最近才選出我們第一位女性總統!

 

我大學主修的是英文文學與英語教學。我去年在武陵高中當了半年的實習老師,這份實習工作是我取得台灣正式英語教師資格的其中一部分訓練。

 

這是是我第一次來美國,感謝大家的幫忙,目前我沒有不適應的地方。太平洋大學裡的人都很友善熱情,我覺得我實在是太幸運了。

 

很希望可以快點跟大家相見,特別歡迎大家來我的中文夜,中文之夜的時間是每個星期一晚上。無論你是對中文、華文化、或是對中國菜有興趣,都非常歡迎你來與我們一起同樂。
